PROVO -- Jimmer Fredette scored a game-high 29 points -- and became the Mountain West Conference's all-time leading scorer -- to lead BYU to a 78-64 victory over UNLV Saturday afternoon in front of a sellout crowd of 22,700 at the Marriott Center.
The No. 8 Cougars swept the regular-season series from the Runnin' Rebels for the first time since 2004.
