Hartsock leads BYU over Gonzaga

Feb 3, 2012 - 7:51 AM Provo, UT (Sports Network) - Noah Hartsock scored 24 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead BYU past No. 24 Gonzaga, 83-73, in West Coast Conference action.

Matt Carlino added 18 points and Brandon Davies had l5 for the Cougars (19-6, 7-3 WCC), who were coming off a loss against nationally-ranked Saint Mary's.

Perhaps looking ahead to next week's meeting with the Gaels, Gonzaga (17-4, 7-2) went down by 14 at halftime and connected on just 3-of-19 from behind the arc. Sam Dower led the Bulldogs with 15 points, while Gary Bell chipped in 14 in the setback.

"We were rattled, frazzled, played with no poise and no composure," Gonzaga head coach Mark Few said. "We've handled some pretty rough places but we didn't handle this one tonight."

Gonzaga failed to net a field goal over the final four-plus minutes of the opening half, and the Cougars' 12-4 run -- capped by Anson Winder's layup at the buzzer -- gave the hosts a 38-24 edge at halftime.

BYU extended an 11-point lead with an 8-0 run midway through the second half, as Carlino's layup provided a 63-44 cushion.

The Bulldogs trailed by double digits until the final two minutes.

"That's a big win for our team and for our guys," BYU head coach Dave Rose said. "Every player that went in the game tonight played with real urgency and a great effort. "
