BYU basketball ensured the third time wasn’t the charm for UCF in the Big 12 Tournament.

The 20th-ranked Cougars defeated UCF 87-73 in a wire-to-wire victory.

It’s BYU’s first-ever win at the Big 12 Tournament.

BYU jumped on UCF early, building a 21-3 lead. They never trailed in the wire-to-wire victory despite the best efforts from UCF guard Darius Johnson, who scored 32 points, one shy of a career-high to lead all scorers.

But BYU’s balanced attack proved too much for UCF as eight players for BYU scored at least eight points.

BYU’s leading scorer was Fousseyni Traore with 14 points.
