    Zavecz's foul shot lifts Wyoming past No. 18 BYU

    PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Hanna Zavecz made a free throw with 13.4 seconds left to lift Wyoming to a 57-56 win over Brigham Young (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP) on Saturday.

    Zavecz, who finished with 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists, was fouled by Ambrosia Anderson. She missed her first foul shot but made the second to give the Cowgirls a 57-56 lead.

    The Cougars came down on offense and worked the ball to Anderson, but she missed a wild shot at the buzzer.

    BYU (20-3, 10-2 Mountain West) led by as many as four several times in the first half and early in the second, but couldn't pull away.

    Zavecz made a 3-pointer to give Wyoming (18-6, 8-5) its biggest lead at 51-43 with 5:24 to play. BYU responded by scoring the next six points, all on Anderson free throws, to get within two.

    Dani Kubik's two free throws with 36.7 seconds left tied it at 56. Kubik led the Cougars with 21 points and eight rebounds.

    BYU held the Cowgirls' leading scorer, Jodi Bolerjack, to two points, 12 under her season average. Erin Hicks had 10 points and nine rebounds for Wyoming.

    Anderson scored 13 of her 19 points in the second half for BYU.
