PROVO — BYU guard Anson Winder started his first game since at Utah on Dec. 10, and it's proven to be a good move.
Winder has been a catalyst in the Cougars' 38-24 lead over Gonzaga at halftime at the Marriott Center.
At intermission, Winder has seven points, three steals and three assists as BYU ended the half on a 25-9 run.
Freshman guard Damarcus Harrison hit the Cougars' first 3-pointer of the night, with 2:25 remaining in the first half, to give BYU a 34-22 advantage.
The Cougars sprinted to a 7-2 lead thanks to back-to-back steals by Winder. The Bulldogs battled back to take a 10-7 lead.
A jumper by Noah Hartsock put BYU up, 17-15, an advantage the Cougars didn't relinquish the rest of the half.
BYU's Charles Abouo has three first-half fouls.
