BYU at Pepperdine Final Box Score

“We didn’t play well today,” BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said.  “We didn’t show up like we needed to and we didn’t get a big effort from anyone. We have to get better."

Shalae Salmon led the team with 13 points while also tallying six rebounds and two assists. Paisley Johnson added 11 points, going a perfect 6 for 6 at the charity line, while Babalu Ugwu contributed 10 points and three rebounds.

Coming off their first conference loss of the season, the No. 25 Cougars came out strong to start the game against Pepperdine, going on an eight-point run to quickly take an 8-2 advantage. The Waves, however, were able to close the gap to tie the game at 12-all. Pepperdine went on to take a one-point lead before the Cougars maintained a small lead to end the quarter, 19-18.

Pepperdine again took a one-point lead to start the second quarter, draining two free throws. Two free throws from Ugwu and a layup from Salmon put the Cougars back in the lead 23-20. With just over three minutes to go in the second quarter, Pepperdine started to take control of the game going on an 11-2 run to earn a 32-27 advantage. Pepperdine closed out the second quarter taking a double-digit lead, putting up a seven-point run to make the score 39-29 going into half time.

The Waves continued to score through the third quarter, keeping their margin near double digits. Free throws from Ugwu and a layup from Jasmine Moody chipped away at Pepperdine’s lead at the beginning of the quarter.  A 3-pointer from Chase brought the score within seven at 48-41. But, the quarter ended with the Waves up 12 points at 56-44.

BYU continued to see the gap widen in the fourth quarter, scoring eight of its 21 points off free throws. Pepperdine dominated throughout the quarter taking a 19- point lead and came out on top 79-65.  

After completing three road games, the Cougars now return to Provo to take on Saint Mary’s at the Marriott Center on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. MST in the annual Kid's Day game on Feb. 7. The game will be carried live on BYUtv and online at byutv.org.
