PROVO, Utah – Makenzi Pulsipher's season-high 22 points led BYU over Weber State 73-64 at the Marriott Center on Wednesday.

"You have to give Weber State a lot of credit," BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. "They played their guts out, they really executed well and they played with a lot of confidence. I'll give our team a lot of credit -- we have not worked on a 3:2 zone all year. This was the first time and I thought they did a really good job."

Pulsipher led the team with a season-high 22 points and six 3-pointers while Kalani Purcell recorded her third double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Cassie Broadhead contributed 12 points and eight assists as Kristine Nielson added 11 points and four rebounds. BYU (5-3) shot 47 percent from the field while outshooting Weber State (6-2) 22-10 in the paint.

Weber State scored the first basket of the game before Nielson landed a 3-pointer for the Cougars. Freshman Shalae Salmon scored from under the basket for a 7-6 lead with 6:58 to go in the first quarter. BYU continued to pick up the pace as a Broadhead shot from the corner extended the Cougars’ advantage 10-6 with 6:08 left. The Wildcats quickly tied up the game and the opponents traded shots from 3-point range. Wayment scored on a jumper to help BYU take the first quarter 21-19.

Purcell hit a layup to give the Cougars a four-point advantage at the beginning of the second quarter as the Wildcats countered back to keep the game within reach. A Purcell jumper put BYU up 29-23 with 6:25 on the clock. The Cougars held the Wildcats to a six-minute scoring drought as Salmon hit a layup to give BYU a double-digit, 33-23 lead with 2:15 to go. Weber State rallied to keep up with the Cougars' pace but it wasn't enough as BYU went into halftime with a 38-31 advantage.

The Wildcats hit a 3-pointer out of the locker room before Broadhead answered with a layup for a 40-34 lead with eight minutes to go. A Pulsipher shot from the arc put the Cougars up by nine before the Wildcats fought back to cut the deficit to four. Purcell hit a 3-pointer as BYU rebuilt a 51-43 lead with 3:42 to go in the third quarter. A Broadhead steal and fast-break pass to Brenna Chase gave BYU a layup and free throw for a 57-48 advantage at the end of the third.  

Purcell opened the fourth quarter with a layup as the Cougars led by 11. The Wildcats turned up defensive pressure and prevented BYU from scoring for over four and a half minutes. Broadhead threw in a layup to put the Cougars back in action with 4:58 to go in the game. BYU maintained a seven-point margin and led by as many as 10 before the Weber State offense took off with back-to-back 3-pointers to bring the game within four, 65-61 with 2:18 left on the clock. Wayment nailed a layup and Broadhead and Nielson combined for a perfect 5-for-5 from the charity stripe as the Cougars won the game 73-64.

Next up for BYU is a game against in-state rival Utah at the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 5:30 p.m. The game will be carried live on the Pac-12 Network and simulcast on BYU Radio – Sirius XM 143.
