The Gaels made just two field goals in the first half’s final eight minutes, despite the fact that BYU’s Mika and Nate Austin were on the bench with two fouls each.

Luke Worthington fouled out and didn’t score in 10 minutes, a feat Haws referred to as a "Bronson effort," alluding to Bronson Kaufusi, the football player who helped the basketball team last year. Rose called Worthington’s work "great minutes," praising the freshman’s effort.
