A layup from Childs returned the lead to BYU 17-16. Late in the first half, the Cougars went on a 7-0 run to increase their lead 34-25.

Haws completed a 3-point play to extend BYU’s lead 41-31 going into the half. Haws led the Cougars with 10 points.

A jumper from Childs began scoring in the second half. With 13:24 left in the game, BYU went on a 13-0 run which included back-to-back 3’s from Nixon and Bryant and a dunk from Childs. The run extended BYU's lead to 63-45.

The Cougars coasted to the end with jumpers from Zac Seljaas and Rylan Bergersen, pushing BYU to its second victory over the Broncos this season, 80-58.
