The Wildcats kept it close the first half and trailed just 22-20 after Kyle Tresnak followed a missed shot with a putback. But WSU's Scott Bamforth was assessed a technical foul for bumping a BYU player heading back upcourt.

The Cougars promptly went on a 20-4 run to get some breathing room.

WSU's Damian Lillard, the nation's leading scorer with a 28.2 average, has been kept in check.

Lillard is 4 of 10 from the field and has nine points. But he has grabbed eight rebounds. Noah Hartsock already has 10 rebounds for BYU, and 14 points.
