Men's Basketball Powers Past Cougars at Home

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Beware all who enter…

Leavey Center is a tough place to play – and the Santa Clara University men's basketball team is on a roll.

The Broncos fought off two second-half pushes in what, on the box score ended up being a closely contested game, to hold off third-place BYU, win their 11th game at home and beat the Cougars in front of more than 2,400 fans, 83-76.

Assists (12-12), steals (12-11 Santa Clara), blocks (2-2), 3-point percentage (36.0% to 35.3% BYU), seven ties and eight lead changes… a quick look at the stats and one would think Thursday's big West Coast Conference matchup on national TV was about as even as it could get.
