LAS VEGAS -- Kyle Collinsworth had career-highs of 23 points and 16 rebounds, helping No. 2 seeded BYU knock off 10th-seeded Loyola Marymount 85-74 in the West Coast Conference tournament quarterfinals on Saturday.
BYU jumped to a 16-point lead near the midway mark in the first half, as Collinsworth had three layups and a jumper during a 14-0 run. The Lions cut their deficit to seven at halftime, but trailed by double digits for most of the second half.
The Cougars advance to the semifinals, where they will face third-seeded San Francisco on Monday.
