USF has no answer for BYU’s Haws in loss

Tyler Haws scored 28 points as BYU turned back the USF men’s basketball team 78-74 Thursday in a West Coast Conference game.

Mark Tollefson had 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting to lead the Dons. Matt Christiansen had 13 points for USF, while Devin Watson and Matt Glover each had 10 points. Glover also had 10 rebounds and seven assists, just missing a triple-double.

BYU led for most of the game, although the Dons always kept it close. Haws was joined in double figures by Anson Windor, who scored 11 points.


Udun Osakue had 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists and five steals but the Gators (8-9, 6-7 California Collegiate Athletic Association) were unable to keep up with the Coyotes (7-9, 7-6).

SFSU doomed itself with a slow start as San Bernardino rolled to a 44-19 lead at halftime.

“We came out with a lack of energy defensively in the first half,” Gators coach Paul Trevor said. “Offensively, we could not make shots to start game.” We played harder in the second half, but dug ourselves too big of a hole to dig out of.”

Isaiah Morton led the Coyotes with 26 points. Jon McMurry was the only other Gator in double figures with 10 points.

Morgan Bailey scored 19 points to lead four Cougars in double figures as BYU (16-5, 8-2 WCC) held off the Dons (13-8, 4-6) at War Memorial Gymnasium.

Makenzi Morrison and Lexi Eaton each added 16 points for the Cougars. Taj Winston led USF with 19 points, while Taylor Proctor added 16 points and nine rebounds. Winston, Proctor and Bailey each surpassed 1,000 career points in the game.

USF shot just 40.7 percent (22-of-54) for the game, including 36 percent (9-of-25) in the first half.


Brianna Harden had 18 points and 15 rebounds as the host Coyotes (13-4, 9-4 CCAA) rolled past the Gators (0-17, 0-13).

Michelle Sutton led SFSU with 13 points and six assists, while Brittaney Allison added 12 points. Allison sparked the Gators early by going 3-of-4 from 3-point range. SFSU started the game 4-of-6 from long range, but finished 6-of-28.

Leti Galarza was the only other Gator in double figures with 10 points.
