PROVO, Utah – It came as no surprise as the BYU Cougars rolled past Alabama A&M 91-60.

It was a wire-to-wire victory for the Cougars as they roared out the gates to an 8-0 lead, not allowing the Bulldogs to score for nearly four minutes to begin the game. Alabama A&M got the score within five at 12-7, but BYU went on a quick 11-0 run to pull away from the Bulldogs. At halftime, BYU nearly had the game in its pocket with a 46-24 lead.

The second half wasn’t much better for Alabama A&M. At one point, the Cougars built what was a 40 point lead in what ended up being a 31 point victory.

By The Numbers

The Cougars finished with three players in double figures. Yoeli Childs turned in 18 points on a strong night from the floor in which he shot 70 percent from the field. He also hauled in 12 rebounds to complete the double-double.

TJ Haws led the way in scoring with 19 points in just 25 minutes. He also shot 9-for-12 from the field.

Zac Seljaas was impressive from beyond the arc, converting on five triples to register 15 points.

Alabama A&M was led by Evan Wiley who came off the bench and scored 18 points in the loss.

Up Next

BYU will next host Rice on Wednesday at 7 p.m. as part of the Men Against Breast Cancer Cougar Cup. The game will be broadcast on BYUtv.
