MALIBU, Calif.—In one of the BYU women’s basketball team’s lowest scoring games of the year, Pepperdine shut down the No. 22 Cougars, 61-49, Thursday night.
The loss was only the third time this season BYU (20-4, 8-2) has scored less than 50 points in a game. It was also the team’s first loss in more than a month, with its last loss coming against Saint Mary’s Dec. 31.
