BYU vs. Santa Clara Box Score

“I’m really happy with the end of this game,” BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. “It was one of those games that I knew we could win, but both halves were scary. I have a young team, but Sara really helped us out. I think it was one of the best games she's ever played. She was a force both on defense and offense and it really paid off tonight. We’re excited to go into the postseason, give it all we have and hopefully do some damage.”

Hamson made all 10 free throw attempts on her way to a career-high 18 points while tying her career high in blocks with nine, pulling in seven rebounds and recording two steals. Paisley Johnson scored 17 points while contributing nine rebounds and three takeaways. Shaylee Gonzales recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds while also dishing out seven assists.

Johnson opened up the scoring for BYU (23-6, 15-3) with a layup and Gonzales hit a 3-pointer to give the Cougars the early lead 5-3 over Santa Clara (13-16, 6-12). Brenna Chase knocked down a wide open 3-point shot and Johnson added a 3-pointer of her own to contribute to a 9-3 run to make the score 14-6. Jasmine Moody and Gonzales each scored a jumper while Hamson blocked three Bronco shots in the last four minutes of the period to help BYU lead 18-13 at the end of the quarter.

Gonzales tied the game at 20-all the next BYU possession and the two teams traded baskets with Johnson scoring her second 3-pointer to tie the game at 25-all. The Cougars reclaimed the lead 28-25 with a basket from Moody and a free throw from Gonzales. Off of assists from Gonzales, Hamson scored two layups in the final 90 seconds of the half to put BYU up 32-27 at the break.

Hamson blocked three attempts in the first two minutes of the third period to go along with four points to help extend the Cougars’ lead to 39-27.
