Junior guard Lee Cummard led BYU with a game-high 26 points at Boise State Saturday on 64.3 percent shooting from the floor (9-for-14) and a perfect 6-for-6 night at the free-throw line. The 6-foot-7 Mesa, Ariz., native added six rebounds, two assists and a game-best two blocked shots. He scored 13 points in 14 first-half minutes to help the Cougars to an 11-point halftime advantage. He added another 13 points in 18 second-half minutes to score more than 20 points in a game for the fourth time this season.

Cummard also performed well on the defensive end of the floor, holding Boise State senior swingman Tyler Tiedeman well below his season averages. Tiedeman came in averaging 11.9 points on 48.8 percent shooting from the floor and a team-best 45.1 percent from behind the arc. Cummard held him to only five points in his 33 minutes, seven below his average. Cummard blocked two of his shots as Tiedeman managed only 22.2 percent shooting going 2-for-9 overall and 1-for-4 (.250) from three-point range.
