Recap: Pepperdine vs. BYU

Malibu, CA (Sports Network) - Tyler Haws scored a game-high 21 points as the BYU Cougars snuck by the Pepperdine Waves, 63-61, in a West Coast Conference battle at Firestone Fieldhouse.

Brandon Davies had a double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds and Matt Carlino netted 12 points including a crucial 3-pointer for BYU (17-6, 7-2 WCC) which has won three of its last four.

Stacy Davis had 17 points and seven rebounds off the bench, Nikolas Skouen dropped in 16 points and Jordan Baker added 12 points for Pepperdine (10-11, 2-6) which has lost five of its last six.

At the end of the first half the Waves led 31-20 by holding advantages of 9-0 from 3-point range and 6-0 from the free-throw line. Both teams shot below 40 percent in the opening period.

In the second half the Cougars heated up to 53.6 percent shooting including a 6-of-7 effort from 3-point range to rally from a 12-point deficit. Carlino scored five of his points in the final minute including a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left that put the Cougars ahead by four points. Baker was fouled from beyond the arc with a second left for Pepperdine and after making his first two free-throws missed the second. However the Waves were unable to secure the rebound and the win went to BYU.

The Cougars had a 21-9 advantage in points off turnovers in the contest while holding a slim 36-33 edge on the boards.
