BYU wins easily again

BYU defeated Arizona 87-65 on Saturday afternoon in Salt Lake City.

Last year, Arizona could not guard Jimmer Fredette.

This year, it was much of the same.

BYU defeated Arizona behind Fredette's 33 points and nine rebounds.

"He (Fredette) is a terrific guard," said Arizona coach Sean Miller. "Today was just another example of how well he can play offensively. He makes everything easier for his team and we just had no answer for him today.

"We tried to guard him as a team but he is clever with the ball in his hands and has a good supporting cast."

BYU shot 51 percent from the field, while Arizona shot 35 percent.

Lamont Jones led Arizona with 20 points, but much of it came when the game was already out of reach.
