BYU closed its season sweep of the Pepperdine Waves on Saturday with a 38-point victory, 86-48. The lopsided victory over the hapless Waves represented BYU's largest winning margin this season.
BYU regained its three-point stroke by hitting more three-pointers (12) than it did during the previous three games combined. In fact, the Cougars had made just 17 total three-pointers during the previous six games.
BYU will need to maintain its touch from outside while still receiving consistent output from the productive frontcourt comprised of senior Noah Hartsock (17.3 PPG, 84.7 FT%) and junior Brandon Davies (14.4 PPG, 8.0 RPG) to close out the 2011-12 season with a bid to the NCAA tournament.
But what does BYU need to do between now and Selection Sunday to become a lock for a sixth consecutive bid to the Big Dance?
