Virginia Tech vs. BYU: Hokies demolished by Cougars on the road, 97-71

Douglas C. Pizac-USA Today Sports

The Virginia Tech Hokies had no answer for BYU's Tyler Haws, who scored 42 points on Saturday in a 97-71 Cougars defeat of the Hokies.

The road woes continued for Virginia Tech (9-4) this season, as the Hokies fell, 97-71, to the BYU Cougars (10-4) on Saturday at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Virginia Tech dropped to 1-2 away from home this year, and the Hokies have now lost four of their last six games.

Tyler Haws was the story for BYU on Saturday, as the sophomore guard scored 42 points on 14-of-25 shooting from the floor, including 6-of-8 from behind the three-point line. Forward Brandon Davies chipped in 17 points, four rebounds and four assists for the Cougars.

Virginia Tech, which trailed by 25 points at halftime, was led by 17 points from Jarell Eddie and 13 points from Robert Brown. The Hokies shot just 38.1 percent from the field on Saturday, including a woeful 2-of-20 performance from behind the three-point arc.

Saturday's victory was the fifth in six games for the Cougars. The game was just the second meeting between the two schools since 1967.
