Ogden, Utah — BYU suffered their third loss in a row as they got embarrassed on the road 113-103 to Weber State. The loss snapped a 15-game winning streak for BYU (5-4) in the series.
After trailing 47-46 at half, Weber State torched BYU’s defense for 66 points in the second half. Weber State hit open looks all night and got to the rim uncontested in an ugly defensive effort for BYU.
Yoeli Childs and Jahshire Hardnett gave BYU 31 and 24 points, respectively, but TJ Haws had a rough night with 1-9 shooting and 8 points. BYU shot 59% from the field, but the Wildcats outshot BYU from the three point line and foul line and had half as many turnovers as BYU.
The silver lining for BYU is that they get Nick Emery back next game versus Utah State, but it will be a tall order for a guy that hasn’t played in over a season to turn around a team that is bad defensively and a poor three-point shooting team.
Things don’t get any easier for BYU, as they welcome Utah State to Provo Wednesday and play Utah Saturday. The Aggies have been very impressive so far (they beat St Mary’s by 17!), while Utah is 4-3 on the year.
