The tall and talented Montana Lady Griz overpowered BYU's women's basketball team 84-43 Saturday night in Missoula.

Reserve forward Jody Welch was the Cougers' leading scorer with nine. Lisa Rathbun and Amberli Gustin chipped in six each. The Cougars shot only 21 percent for the game, after missing some open shots early in the contest and being unable to recover after that. BYU plays its first home game of the season Monday at 5 p.m. in the Smith Fieldhouse.
