Here are three keys to the Cougars’ loss:

  • San Francisco led by 15 points at halftime and extended that lead to as many as 21 in the second half. 
  • BYU shot just 12 of 25 from the free throw line. That’s 13 misses from the charity stripe. 
  • The Cougars rallied in the second half, cutting the deficit to eight with 5:38 remaining, but they couldn’t get any closer. Alex Barcello scored 25 points, but he didn’t get enough help. All five of USF’s starters scored in double figures.
