PROVO -- The BYU women's basketball team completed the non-conference season in Provo with a lopsided win 77-50 against the Portland State Vikings Saturday at the Marriott Center.

A game in which it never trailed, BYU overwhelmed the Vikings from start to finish and shot 52% from the field in an all-around team effort.

Junior Ambrosia Anderson, who had a game-high 16 points, was one of three Cougars to score in double figures. Senior Kristen Kozlowski scored 13 points in just 12 minutes, making perfect on all six shot attempts. Senior Danielle Cheesman had a game-high eight rebounds and nine points.

Sophomore Dani Kubik provided a spark off the bench and scored a season-high 13 points and hauled in six rebounds.

"I thought Kubik played really well tonight," said head coach Jeff Judkins. "She's a real force both defensively and offensively for us. She is by far the most improved player on the team."

Getting off to a quick start, the Cougars scored on their first five possessions and never looked back, leading 10-4. Kozlowski led all scorers at the half with 10 points. The sharp-shooting Cougars shot 68% from the field, and held the Vikings to just 26.9% and scoreless during a nearly five-minute period towards the end of the half.

With the victory, BYU improves to 9-4 overall, 7-1 at home. After a successful start in the non-conference season, BYU is ready to see if it can continue the strong play against more familiar conference foes.

"We're ready to get going on the conference," added Judkins. "One of our goals is to win the conference. I think we've done some good things this pre-season against some good teams."

Conference play begins against Wyoming, Thursday, January 13th at 7 p.m., at the Marriott Center, where the Cougars have won three straight games.
