The Cougars made 13 3-pointers, including seven from Chase and three from Johnson, to pull away. Chase made five 3-pointers for 15 points in the first half, helping the Cougars to a commanding lead at the break.
Gonzales added 12 points before the break, and BYU held Gonzaga to a single field goal in the second quarter en route to the double-digit lead.

Those were some keys for us.
