BYU 90, Texas A&M-Kingsville 38 • In Provo, 13 Cougars scored, led by Babalu Ugwu’s career-best 12 points, in a dominant victory over the Javelinas in BYU’s home opener on Thursday night at the Marriott Center.

“I’m happy that everybody tonight got to play. A lot of them worked hard to get that opportunity, especially the two walk-ons, to be able to score,” BYU coach Jeff Judkins said. “I’m sure that’s a dream for them to be able to play in a game and get an opportunity to score a basket. It was good to see the girls execute what we’re were trying to do and not go off on their own and do their own thing. The starting group started the game really well defensively and shot the ball from outside very well.”
