PROVO, Utah - Paisley Harding scored 18 points and BYU held Saint Mary's to just 10 first-half points en route to a 78-36 rout of the Gaels.

Taycee Wedin hit a 3-pointer with 7:37 left in the first quarter to get Saint Mary's within three, 6-3, but the Gaels were scoreless for the final six minutes of the first period while BYU built a 24-5 lead. Madeline Holland's layup with 8:47 left in the second quarter snapped the scoreless string.

Harding missed all six three-point attempts, but was 8 of 19 from the floor and added five rebounds, three assists and three steals. Lauren Gustin scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for her fourth straight double-double. Shaylee Gonzales added 13 points and eight rebounds.
