    PROVO, Utah -- Brandon Davies scored 23 points and Noah Hartsock and Matt Carlino added 21 points apiece to help Brigham Young run away with a 95-78 victory over Santa Clara on Saturday.

    Charles Abouo added 13 points for the Cougars (15-4, 4-1 West Coast Conference), who won their fourth straight conference game. Santa Clara (8-9, 0-4) remained winless in conference play despite getting 22 points from Kevin Foster and 18 points from Niyi Harrison.

    BYU dominated around the basket from start to finish. The Cougars outrebounded the Broncos 40-26 and scored 50 points in the paint compared to 30 for Santa Clara.

    BYU used a 17-5 run early in the second half to create a cushion. Charles Abouo scored a layup to ignite the run and Davies put in a one-handed jam to bookend it and give the Cougars a commanding 64-50 lead with 14:46 remaining.
