BYU blasts Colorado College 94-59.

Haws goes up for a layup - USA TODAY Sports

The BYU men's basketball team took care of business in their first exhibition game of the year against Colorado College with a 35 point win.

After struggling to hit a three-point shot in the first half, the Cougars came out and hit 4-8 in the second half to propel the team to a 35 point win against Colorado College.  Even if the game was just exhibition, winning the first game of the year is good to the soul.  Matt Carlino and Ryan Milne led their teams and all scorers with 23 points.

First Half

Even though the Cougars struggled to hit their three point shots, going only 2-8, their overall shooting percentage was almost 49%.  Thanks to a couple of runs, including an 11-0 run early in the game, the Cougars ended the half with a 10 point lead 49-39.  Carlino had 16 points, two rebounds and two steals in the first half.  The highlight of the half, and of the game came when freshman Frank Bartley IV stole the ball that led to an assist to Nate Austin for a monster dunk over the Tigers.  With the foul and converted three-point play, the Cougars took back the lead and didn't look back.

Second Half

The second half was all Cougars as the defense held the Tigers to 20 second half points while putting up 45 of their own.  Again big runs helped create the difference and a Tiger field goal drought of more than 9 minutes sealed the victory.  The Tigers shot under 8% in the first 11 minutes of the half while only hitting one shot.  Overall the Cougars had five players score in double digits with Carlino (23), Haws (14), Collinsworth (13), Winder (13) and Worthington (10) reaching the mark.
