PROVO -- BYU's women's basketball defeated the Bobcats

of Montana St. University 80-42, Tuesday, at the Marriott Center.

The Cougars took advantage of their obvious size advantage in outrebounding the Bobcats 49-30 that included 18 offensive rebounds leading to 21 second-chance points. BYU dominated inside, scoring 32 points in the paint.

"We were just bigger and stronger than they were," BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. "We knew that coming into the game. Our goal was to hold them to 40 points and we came close."

Defensively, BYU came out strong to start the game keeping Montana St., scoreless until the 16:01 mark in the first half and the Bobcats didn't score again until the 7:14 mark.

Kristen Kozlowski posted her seventh double-figure scoring game of the season with 14 points while Nancy Seljaas came off the bench to score 14 points and set a new season high.

With the home victory, BYU goes to 8-4 on the season, 7-1 at home, while Montana St., falls to 6-6.

The Cougars next play Portland St., Saturday, January 8th at 2 p.m., at the Marriott Center.
