OMAHA -- Brandon Davies and Kyle Collinsworth had career nights as the No. 21/25 BYU men’s basketball team improved to a perfect 7-0 with a 77-65 win over Creighton (4-3) in Omaha, Neb.

Davies, a sophomore forward, grabbed six rebounds to add to his career-high 24 points. Collinsworth, a true freshman, posted his first-career double-double, tying his career high with 12 points, and setting a new career mark with 10 rebounds.

“It was a great team win," said BYU head coach Dave Rose. "You take a look at the numbers and it’s amazing how we shared the ball."

In the complete team effort, six Cougars finished with at least four rebounds and two assists and four scored in double figures.

Scoring was staggered to start the contest, with Collinsworth scoring four quick points to help put the Cougars up 11-6 with 15:49 remaining in the first half.

Davies started strong, going 2-for-4 from the field to tally five points as BYU took a 17-12 lead into the second media timeout. The Cougars gained their largest lead of the half with 9:36 remaining after a Jackson Emery trey put the Cougars up 24-12 and extended the lead to 12 again after a Collinsworth dribble drive made it 30-18.

After not starting due to a shin injury, Emery went on to play the entire second half, recording 13 points and seven rebounds.

However, the Blue Jays went on an 8-2 run to bring the score to 34-28 going into halftime. Collinsworth led the Cougars in the first half, posting eight points, four rebounds and two assists.

The Jays didn’t go away as the second half began, pushing the Cougars to a 37-34 tally before Emery converted a steal with a layup to put the Cougars up by seven with 17:20 remaining in the game.

Freshman forward Doug McDermott led a Creighton charge to begin the second half, scoring five points on 2-of-3 shooting, pulling the Blue Jays to tie the contest at 48 with 11:38 remaining in the game.

Senior guard Jimmer Fredette sparked a 10-0 run to give the Cougars a 61-51 lead after an Emery pass set up a Hartsock dunk with 8:52 to play. Davies scored four points during the run and took over in the final minutes, propelling the Cougars to a 75-63 lead with 2:30 left in the game.

Fredette finished with 13 points, five rebounds and four assists in his lowest scoring output of the season. The senior guard has scored in double figures in all seven games this season.

BYU plays Hawaii on Saturday at the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. MDT.
