BYU Starts With Defense

By Rhiannon Potkey - March 14, 2008

LAS VEGAS -- Defense has been key for BYU at the outset.

BYU forced San Diego State into three turnovers on SDSU's first three possessions and an airball on its fourth to jump to a 7-2 lead.

The Cougars have made the Aztecs work for every shot, draining the clock down.

The Aztecs struggled on offense against Air Force in the quarterfinals, and it has continued. Richie Williams ended the drought with a 15-foot jumper.

The Cougars started 0 for 3, but got rolling with two free throws by Sam Burgess and a pretty feed from Lee Cummard to Trent Plaisted for the dunk.

Jonathan Tavernari drained a three-pointer from the top of the key on a kickout from Plaisted for the 7-2 lead.
