MAUI, Hawai'i (Nov. 24, 2004) -- BYU came alive offensively as four Cougars scored in double figures in their final game of the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational, a 77-56 win over host Chaminade. Only two BYU players had scored in double figures in the two previous games combined.

"I thought that when the game was on the line, we got good play off the bench," BYU coach Steve Cleveland said. "Some guys stepped up and made some plays and we got some stops. I just like the contributions we got from everyone. We still have a long way to go before we become a good team but we made some progress."

The story of the first half was scoring runs. Senior center Jared Jensen dominated early as he scored BYU's first seven points. A three by sophomore guard Mike Rose gave the Cougars a 10-2 lead.

Chaminade took its turn next as the Silverswords scored 13 of the next 15 points to take a 15-12 lead.

Despite the lapse, BYU finished the half strong with a 21-6 run to go into the locker room up 33-21. Jensen finished the first half with nine points.

The second half was more of the same for the Cougars, as senior guard Mike Hall took his turn filling up the scoring sheet. He nailed two three pointers to extend the lead to 39-23 and put in four more points to put BYU up 47-31.

The Silverswords made a few small runs late in the game to close the gap to 10 but were never able to cut the lead to single digits.

Jensen was the leading scorer for BYU, finishing with 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting and adding five rebounds. Sophomore forward Keena Young and senior guard Mike Hall posted identical totals of 14 points and six rebounds. Derek Dawes was solid off the bench, scoring 10 points and pulling down six boards.

The Cougars improve to 1-2 with the win while Chaminade falls to 1-3. Junior guard Chris Reeves, who came into the game averaging 26.0 point per contest, was limited to just five by Hall.

"I though defensively Mike Hall did a wonderful job," Cleveland said. "It was the first time I've seen him play the way he can play."

BYU will kickoff its home schedule Saturday at 7 p.m. against California in the Marriot Center.
