AP - Sports

PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Matt Carlino scored a season-high 28 points - two short of his career high - and dished out six assists Saturday night as BYU snapped Santa Clara's five-game winning streak with a 96-79 victory.

Tyler Haws added 24 points for the Cougars (18-6, 8-2 West Coast), and Brandon Davies had 16 points and 11 rebounds. BYU shot 58 percent from the field and outscored Santa Clara 50-20 in the paint.

Kevin Foster led the Broncos (17-7, 5-4) with 18 points, and Marc Trasolini scored 15. Santa Clara fell to 0-8 against BYU since beating the Cougars in 1972.

The Broncos stayed close throughout the first half, but the Cougars came alive after halftime, outscoring Santa Clara 49-33 and leading by as many as 23.

The winning point total was one shy of the season high for the Cougars, who entered the game with the second-most total points in Division I.
