BYU avenged a loss at Pacific last year with a comfortable 69-49 road win Thursday night to open up WCC play.
Spencer Johnson’s return from a 5-week injury absence was a main story line, as he scored 15 points and hit three three-pointers off the bench. Jaxson Robinson was the high man for BYU with 17 points and chipped in 6 rebounds.
BYU had 19 turnovers, but offset that with 11-25 shooting from deep (44%), 14-17 free throw shooting, and a 40-25 rebounding margin. The Tigers shot just 32% from the field and 39% from the foul line and never threatened BYU the whole way.
