Perry Jones III scored 28 points, Brady
Heslip hit six 3-pointers and No. 6 Baylor edged Brigham Young
86-83 on Saturday.
Brandon Davies had a chance to force overtime but his 3-point
attempt at the buzzer was blocked by Pierre Jackson.
The Bears are off to the third 9-0 start in school history and
best under coach Scott Drew. The Cougars absorbed their second
nonconference loss in their last 50 home games.
BYU led by as many as 13 points in the first half thanks to 9-0
and 10-0 runs. And the Cougars fought back from a 79-70 second-half
deficit behind the play of freshman guard Matt Carlino, who scored
18 in his debut for the Cougars (8-3).
