LOS ANGELES – Despite having a 17-0 run in the fourth quarter, the BYU women’s basketball team lost its first conference game of the season, falling 61-58 to LMU at Gersten Pavilion on Thursday.

BYU vs. Loyola Marymount Final Box Score

“We had a great comeback and made some good plays to get back in the game,” BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. “We needed to execute the game plan better in the last closing seconds. We need to start the game off better then we have been, especially on the road. We keep having to play from behind and that’s hard especially on the road.”

Paisley Johnson led the team with 16 points, three rebounds and a team-best six assists. Jasmine Moody recorded 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals. Sarah Hamson contributed a game-high four blocks, along with 11 rebounds and one steal.

The Cougars opened the first quarter with back-to-back layups by Babalu Ugwu in the paint. However, the Lions jumped ahead to a 16-6 lead with less than three minutes left on the clock in the first quarter. Brenna Chase scored a three-point jumper before LMU ended the first quarter with the advantage, 16-11.

Free throws and layups by four BYU players cut into the Lions lead in the second quarter, 23-19. With less than a minute left in the first half, layups by Moody and Shalae Salmon cut the deficit to three, 26-23.  

BYU came out in the third period with back-to-back layups in the paint by Johnson to take its first lead of the game, 27-26. A 3-point bucket by the Lions gave them the lead back at 34-30. BYU kept it within four after Johnson and Moody hit a pair of layups in the paint and headed into the final quarter down 42-38.

Hamson hit a jumper to make the score 42-40 for BYU with nine minutes remaining in the game. With only three minutes left in the game, the Cougars went on an 8-0 run to bring the score within four, 54-50. Johnson hit a 3-pointer in the last two minutes of the game to cut the deficit down to one point, 53-54.

Back-to-back free throws by Moody gave the Cougars their second lead of the game, 55-54. After the third timeout called in the final minute on the clock, a Johnson free throw extended BYU’s lead 58-56. LMU responded with three points in the last ten seconds to take the game, 61-58.

On the game, BYU shot 44 percent from the field, 13 percent from 3 and 67 percent from the free-throw line. 

The Cougars continue WCC play on the road as they face Pepperdine on Feb. 2, at 2 p.m. PST. The game will have a live video stream on theW.tv.
