PROVO -- BYU claimed the battle of the sister schools in the Cougars’ second exhibition game, defeating BYU-Hawaii 85-60 on Friday at the Marriott Center.

"I was pleased with the game and I thought it was a great test for our team," BYU head coach Dave Rose said. "A couple of our guys who didn’t get off to a great start were able to recover. In the second half we were much more engaged and tried to challenge them. We’ve got a lot of things to work on so I’m glad we have a week before the season opener."

Senior Jimmer Fredette led all scorers with 18 points to go with four assists, three rebounds, one block and one steal. Junior Noah Hartsock and sophomore Chris Collinsworth both flirted with double-doubles with Hartsock scoring 10 points and grabbing nine rebounds while Collinsworth finished with eight points and nine rebounds.

The Seasiders gave BYU trouble in the first half, maintaining a lead over the Cougars until the 12:39 mark in the first half. Sophomore Stephen Rogers hit a spot up three-pointer while getting sent to the floor by a BYU-Hawaii defender and converted the four-point play to give BYU its first lead.

“We got off to a slow start," BYU junior Charles Abouo said following the game. "They came out with a lot of energy pushing the tempo early but our defense got better as the game went on. In the second half we paid more attention to details and got out to a lead.”

The first period was plagued with fouls, including 16 by the Seasiders and 11 for the Cougars. BYU shot 22 free throws in the first half alone, converting 15 to go to the locker room with a 41-32 lead at halftime.

BYU came out much more energetic in the second half, outscoring BYU-Hawaii 44-28 in the period. The Cougars also improved their shooting percentage from 33-percent to 55-percent from the field.

Up by 14 at 53-39 a few minutes into the second frame, BYU pushed its lead after Fredette converted a three-point play on a double-clutch layup and free throw. After a blocked shot by Noah Hartsock on the Seasiders’ ensuing possession, Kyle Collinsworth hit Abouo with a behind-the-back pass for a jumper along the baseline.

On the next Cougar possession, Fredette lost his man on a lightning-quick crossover before converting the layup to extend the lead to 57-39 with 12:47 remaining. BYU ultimately pulled away with less than six minutes remaining on back-to-back fast break dunks by Kyle Collinsworth and Chris Collinsworth to take an 80-46 lead.

Four players scored in double-digits for BYU, including Brock Zylstra who hit three treys in the second half and had four steals. Abouo contributed 14 points, 10 in the first half. The junior hit two treys midway through the first half to help the Cougars gain some breathing room before sitting most of the second half.

BYU finishes the exhibition season 2-0 and will now look to its first regular season contest of the season next Friday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. against Fresno State.
