PROVO, Utah – Paisley Johnson scored a career-high 24 points as BYU women’s basketball recorded a season-high 83 points in its 83-58 win over Pepperdine on Thursday at the Marriott Center.

BYU vs. Pepperdine Final Box

"We had spurts where we looked very, very good and then we had spurts where were I wondered, 'Where are we?'" BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. "My three guards are as good of a guard line that I've had in a long time. They're playing well together and with a lot of confidence."

BYU had three players score more than 20 points in the same game for the first time this season. Johnson’s career-best 24 points came on her shooting 7 for 13 from the field, including three 3-pointers, and seven makes from the free throw line. Brenna Chase tied her season-best five 3-point makes on her way to a season-high 23 points while also adding 7 assists. Shaylee Gonzales scored 22 points and contributed seven assists and rebounds.

Gonzales opened the game with jumpers on back-to-back possessions to help the Cougars jump out to a 6-0 lead. Chase knocked down a 3-point shot and Johnson hit two free throws to give BYU (11-3, 3-0 WCC) an 11-6 lead over Pepperdine (7-5,1-2 WCC) with six minutes left in the period. Chase hit two more shots from behind the arc and Shalae Salmon added a layup as the Cougars outscored the Waves 9-2 to take a 20-8 lead with 2:22 left in the first period. Pepperdine cut the BYU lead to six points before two free throws from Johnson and a steal from Gonzales leading to a Chase layup as time expired in the period to claim a 26-16 lead.

Both teams exchanged baskets to start the second period with Johnson putting back an offensive rebound for a layup and Gonzales scoring a 3-pointer to push the Cougars’ lead 31-20. Johnson knocked down a jumper along with a pair of free throws and Chase scored her fourth make from downtown to help extend the BYU lead 40-24 with just under two minutes before the half. Pepperdine closed the half with a 5-0 run to cut the lead to 40-29 at the break.

Pepperdine briefly brought the deficit to single digits before Chase scored two layups to reclaim a 45-33 lead with 7:38 in the third. Gonzales capitalized on a steal from Chase scoring a fast break layup while drawing a foul and hitting the ensuing free throw to put BYU up 51-33. Jasmine Moody hauled in a lob pass from Sara Hamson to give the Cougars a 20-point lead 53-33 with four minutes left in the period. The Waves climbed back with an 11-0 run to bring the score back to single digits before Johnson made a jump shot and Gonzales added a free throw to give the Cougars a 56-44 lead to end the period.

Johnson opened the fourth period with a 3-pointer to give BYU a 15-point lead 59-44. Chase made her fifth 3-point shot starting the Cougars on a 15-2 run that included 3-point makes from Gonzales and Johnson to push the lead to 76-53 with three minutes left. Johnson and Ashley Beckstrand each added 3-pointers to help close out the game and give BYU the win 83-58 over Pepperdine.

The Cougars will look to continue their winning streak against Loyola Marymount at the Marriott Center on Saturday, January 5, at 2 p.m. MDT. The game will be broadcast on BYUtv.
