BYU rolls to easy win over TCU

Jan 19, 2011 - 6:37 AM Provo, UT (Sports Network) - Jimmer Fredette kept stockpiling points, scoring 21 and dishing out five assists, as the ninth-ranked BYU Cougars kept rolling with an 83-67 victory over TCU.

Jackson Emery added 17 points, Noah Hartstock donated 14 points and nine rebounds, and Brandon Davies added 13 points and nine rebounds for the Cougars (18-1, 4-0 Mountain West), who rolled to their eighth straight victory.

Ronnie Moss poured in a game-best 27 points with six rebounds and Garlon Green added 10 points, while Hank Thorns posted seven points, seven rebounds and 10 assists for the Horned Frogs (10-10, 1-4).

"We just wanted our team to play better tonight and we played hard," said TCU head coach Jim Christian. "We had some opportunities we missed that you have to make in order to beat them."

BYU looked sharp right off the opening tip, jumping to a 10-2 edge on Davies' jumper. The Cougars rattled off 12 consecutive points moments later with Fredette scoring the final eight of them capped by his trey for a 25-7 lead.

"You can't script it but our guys shared the ball, played hard, executed our game plan early and we were able to get a nice lead," said BYU head coach Dave Rose.

The Cougars held a 47-30 lead at the half then Emery dialed up a three-pointer for a 20-point cushion. The scrappy Horned Frogs sliced the deficit nearly in half to 55-43 on Moss' three with just under 14 1/2 minutes to play, but that was a close as the visitors got, as two Fredette free throws extended the advantage to 76-57 with just under 5 1/2 minutes to play. The Cougars cruised to victory from there.
