Baylor holds on for win at BYU

  • Published Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, at 12:05 a.m.

Perry Jones III scored a career-high 28 points, Brady Heslip hit six three-pointers and No. 6 Baylor edged Brigham Young 86-83 on Saturday at Provo, Utah.

Brandon Davies had a chance to force overtime but his three-point attempt at the buzzer was blocked by 5-foot-10 Pierre Jackson.

The Bears are off to the third 9-0 start in school history and best under coach Scott Drew. The Cougars absorbed their second nonconference loss in their last 50 home games.

BYU led by as many as 13 points in the first half thanks to 9-0 and 10-0 runs. And the Cougars fought back from a 79-70 second-half deficit behind the play of freshman guard Matt Carlino, who scored 18 in his debut for the Cougars (8-3).

Jones limped off the court with 1:26 remaining after knocking knees during a scramble for a loose ball. But he returned and tipped in an offensive rebound to make it 86-83.

Davies had 18 points, 13 rebounds, a block and a steal for the Cougars.

Carlino, who became eligible Saturday after transferring last year from UCLA, made 7 of 14 shots, including 4 for 8 from 3-point range. He also committed four turnovers, including a costly one down the stretch.

Charles Abouo added 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting for BYU, and Noah Hartsock scored 15.

Heslip finished with 18 points. Jackson added 13 points and seven assists for the Bears.
