PROVO -- The BYU women's basketball team won their first game of the 2009-10 season 85-58 in an exhibition game against the Westminster Griffins, Friday.

"We shot the ball well and did a good job of moving up and down the court," said head coach Jeff Judkins. "We need to do a better job of rebounding, which is something we'll continue to work on."

A 15-4 lead after the first eight minutes of play would prove to be the pace of the game for the Cougars. BYU's Haley Hall put up early points for the Cougars and continued to lead throughout the game, finishing with 14 points and six rebounds to lead all players.

In the second half, BYU went on a 10-0 run against the Griffins, their longest streak of the night.

The Cougar bench saw big points against Westminster from Dani Peterson, Alexis Kaufusi and Stephanie Buhler Bates. Peterson finished with nine points, Kafusi with 10 and Buhler Bates with 11.

Going into the half, BYU led 40-27 with Hall leading with eight points. Foreman was the only Cougar to visit the line in the first half where she went 1-for-2. As a team against the Griffins, the Cougars ended with five visits to the free-throw line going 8-for-10.

The Griffins were held to a single-digit score until minute 7:07 in the first half. The Cougars were in double-digits just six minutes into playing time.

The second half began with Kim Parker and Kaufusi starting for Foreman and Kristen Riley, who finished the game with five rebounds.

The Griffins were led on the offense by Nicole Yazzie who ended with 11 points. Teammate Dani Evans finished the game with six rebounds.

BYU will play its second exhibition game tomorrow at 2 p.m. in the Marriott Center against Chadron State.
