    PROVO, Utah -- Michael Loyd Jr. scored 17 points off the bench to help BYU defeat Division II Eastern New Mexico 95-49 on Saturday night.

    Loyd scored 10 points in a 17-4 run late in the first half as the Cougars (14-1) built a 57-27 halftime lead.

    Tyler Jefferson and Equs Darby each scored 10 points for Eastern New Mexico (5-6).

    The Cougars won for the ninth straight time despite playing without their two leading scorers, Jimmer Fredette (strep throat) and Jackson Emery (bruised heel).

    Jonathan Tavernari, starting for the first time since Dec. 2 in place of Emery, scored eight points in an early 16-4 BYU run. Tavernari finished with 15 points and moved into 19th place on BYU's all-time scoring list.

    Noah Hartsock scored 12 points for BYU and added a game-high eight rebounds and six assists. Chris Miles contributed 13 points and six rebounds.
