Davies leads BYU over UTSA 81-62; Haws scores at least 20 points for 5th straight game

Brandon Davies had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Tyler Haws added 20 points to lead BYU to an 81-62 victory against UTSA on Wednesday night.

It was the fifth straight game with at least 20 points for Haws, tying him with Danny Ainge, Kresimir Cosic and Michael Smith for the second-longest streak to start a season in school history. Devin Durrant scored 20 or more in seven consecutive games to start the 1983-84 season.

The Cougars (3-2) shot 31 of 60 (51.7 percent) from the floor and enjoyed a 48-21 rebounding edge in bouncing back from two losses at the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Kannon Burrage scored 22 points and Michael Hale III added 13 for the Roadrunners (3-2).

Trailing 48-28 at the break, UTSA whittled the deficit to 13 with 10:42 remaining. But BYU pushed the lead back to 17, then put the game away with a 9-2 run fueled by Haws, who had five points during the surge.
