PROVO, Utah -- Tyler Haws scored 28 points and grabbed eight rebounds Saturday night to lead BYU to an easy 86-72 win over Portland.
Haws was 13 of 19 from the field and now has scored 20 or more points 18 times this season. Brandon Davies added 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Cougars (19-8, 9-4 West Coast), while Matt Carlino and Craig Cusick had 10 points and seven assists apiece. The Cougars shot 60 percent from the field in improving to 9-0 all-time against Portland.
BYU never trailed, leading 46-25 at halftime and by as many as 24 in the second half. Portland ended the game on an 8-0 run to close the gap somewhat.
The Cougars retired the jerseys of BYU legends Mel Hutchins and Roland Minson during a halftime ceremony.
Dwight Jones, a former NBA veteran, 1972 Olympian and Houston Cougars star, died Monday at 64.
Former Southern Miss forward Jonathan Mills, 26, was shot and killed in Chicago on Monday near the high school where he once starred.
The ACC has some pretty daunting venues, from Syracuse's Carrier Dome to North Carolina's Smith Center. Is Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium the toughest place to get a win?
