PROVO — BYU is shooting a torrid 62 percent while San Francisco is shooting an abysmal 26 percent.
That pretty much explains the Cougars' 42-20 lead at halftime at the Marriott Center.
The Dons made their first three shots of the game, then went 5-for-28 the rest of the half. BYU has hit 16-of-26 shots from the floor and seven 3-pointers.
Davies hit four of his first five shots and scored nine points in the game's first five minutes as BYU jumped to an early 13-6 lead. That was followed by a 25-4 run that including four straight 3-pointers, three of them by Brock Zylstra. That spurt was capped by another 3-pointer, by Stephen Rogers, to make it 32-10 with six minutes left in the half.
Also during that stretch, San Francisco went six minutes without scoring and more than 10 minutes without a field goal.
