Winning Streak Continues for Y Women, Beat Gonzaga By 17

Spokane, WA -- Stacy Jensen's last second heroics at the end of each half, lifted BYU's women's basketball team to a 17-point, 74-57 victory over Gonzaga, Saturday.

Jensen's lay up and free-throw gave the visiting Cougars a 13-point advantage at the break and a similar three-point play with the clock running out at the end of the game sealed the victory, the fourth straight win for BYU and the third on the road.

All-American Erin Thorn led the Cougar team with 17 points and a season and career high nine rebounds, followed by 16 points and nine rebounds from Heather Chessman. Jensen had 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists in the game.

"We continue to do a good job in taking care of the ball and we're playing really well right now," said BYU Head Coach Trent Shippen. He also credited the strong play from his bench players and balanced scoring as factors in Saturday's win.

BYU had nine three-pointers in the game and only 10 turnovers, the second lowest for the team this season.

For the Bulldogs it was Jessica Malone leading her team in scoring with 20 points. No other players scored in double-digits as the Cougars held Gonzaga to just 37 percent shooting from the field.

The 4-1 Cougars play Arkansas on Monday before returning home for four games beginning Thursday, Dec. 7 against Northern Iowa. That game has a 4:30 p.m. tip off and is part of a double-header with the men's team who host Florida International.
