BYU hoops offense continues to thrive with Zac Seljaas in starting lineup
BYU’s offense looked like its old self last weekend in a pair of victories over Pepperdine and Santa Clara and that scorching hot play on the offensive end continued on Thursday night in an 82-67 win over Loyola Marymount.
BYU jumped out to a fast start on the Lions as the Cougars shot 66 percent from the field led by Elijah Bryant pouring in 20 points and knocking down four three-pointers in the first half.
The Cougars built up their lead to a game-high 22 points in the first half and never looked back.
Loyola Marymount tried to make a game out of it in the second half cutting their deficit down to nine after a Donald Gipson three-pointer with 6:11 left in the game, but then BYU popped off an 8-0 run to put out the Lions for good.
Four of BYU’s five starters scored in double figures led by Eli Bryant’s game-high 29 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field in 34 minutes of play.
BYU now moves to 16-4 overall and 5-2 in WCC play. BYU has won 13 of their last 15 games and will host San Diego next on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. on BYUtv.
