BYU Avoids Disaster, Holds on to Beat Idaho State

BYU narrowly avoided a terrible early-season loss with a 60-56 win over Idaho State Monday evening in Provo. Spencer Johnson hit the go-ahead three with 10 seconds left to put BYU up 58-56 and then sealed it with two free throws with one second to go.

BYU couldn’t much right, particularly on offense, that kept the Bengals in the game the whole way. BYU had 23 turnovers and shot just 37% from three, including 18% from deep. Fouss led the way with 15 points and 11 boards, Spencer Johnson added 11 points, and Gideon George chipped in 10.
