For the first time this season, BYU did not need a shot in the final seconds to come out on top.
Instead, the Cougars secured an 87-73 victory Saturday night at the Marriott Center, defeating Nicholls State to earn their third win of the year.
The double-digit win gives BYU its largest margin of victory on the season after it needed some late-game heroics to pull out its first two wins.
The Cougars kept their unblemished home record intact, moving to 3-0 in Provo.
“I feel like we did a good job sharing the ball,” starting point guard Rudi Williams said. “We made a bunch of catch-and-shoot 3s. Coach always emphasizes … making two defenders guard one so we can get open shots, easier shots.”
