    PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Trent Plaisted's 16 points led a balanced Brigham Young scoring attack in the Cougars' 68-49 win over Tulsa Friday night.

    On top 24-16, BYU (8-3) outscored Tulsa 14-3 in the final five minutes of the first half before Chris Wallace's basket at the buzzer broke the run and helped the Golden Hurricanes stay within 17 points at 38-21.

    Tulsa (4-7) went without a field goal for the first 11 minutes of the game and finished the half with only five field goals on 17 shots.

    Turnovers also plagued Tulsa as it had 16 in the opening half and finished with 23. BYU scored 24 points off Tulsa turnovers to the Golden Hurricanes 10.

    To begin the second half, Bishop Wheatley hit two free throws to cut the lead to 15 before BYU went on a 9-0 run to push the lead up to 24 at 47-23. Plaisted and Brock Reichner each had two baskets during the run, including a 3-pointer by Reichner.

    The Cougars largest lead of the game was 27 at 54-27.

    Fernando Malaman also scored in double figures for BYU with 10, eight in the opening half.

    Brett McDade's 11 points led Tulsa, who shot only 30 percent for the game. He was the only Golden Hurricane in double figures.

    Lee Cummard and Keena Young led BYU with six rebounds each, while Charles Ramsdell and Darold Crow also had six for Tulsa.
