SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Tyler Haws scored a career-high 42 points, including six 3-pointers, and Brigham Young routed Virginia Tech 97-71 Saturday in the Cougars' final warm-up before West Coast Conference play begins next week.
Haws had a chance to tie a school record the last time BYU played at the Utah Jazz arena in Salt Lake City after opening the season with six straight 20-point games. But the sophomore guard fell two points short in a blowout victory over Montana on Nov. 28.
On Saturday, he more than made up for that.
He had 29 points by halftime after opening 9 of 13, including 6 of 8 from beyond the arc.
By then the Cougars (10-4) were leading 56-31 against a Hokies team that has dropped its last two by a combined 62 points.
Erick Green, the nation's leading scorer, finished with 12 points on 4 of 17 shooting for Virginia Tech (9-4).
