SPOKANE, Wash. — Shooting an ice-cold 25 percent from the floor in the first half, BYU trails Gonzaga, 37-27, at halftime at the McCarthey Center.

Cougar guard Matt Carlino has 12 points, but the rest of the team has combined for just 15 points, all by Charles Abouo (8) and Brandon Davies (7).

For the Bulldogs, guards Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr., each have eight points and Elias Harris has seven.

BYU forward Noah Hartsock, who suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee in last weekend's win over Santa Clara, has played sparingly and hasn't attempted a shot.
