BYU Basketball returned home after a three-game road swing and took care of business in a 107-80 win over Pepperdine.

BYU came into the game as one of the top three-point shooting teams in the nation, and continued that with a 17-28 (61%) performance from deep. The 17 made threes tied a school record BYU set earlier in the season versus Virginia Tech.

Jake Toolson led the way with 7 made threes and 25 points and Yoeli Childs added 21 points; seven different BYU players made a three. BYU overall shot 61% from the floor and out-rebounded the Waves 36-26.

Pepperdine came into the game winners of four of five, but early foul trouble to star point guard Colbey Ross threw the Waves off their game and allowed BYU to run away.

BYU next welcomes St Mary’s into the Marriott Center Saturday night in a big game for both teams NCAA tournament hopes.
