Baylor down early, rallies for 79-64 win over BYU

WACO, Texas (AP) - Pierre Jackson had 16 points and nine assists, and all five Baylor starters finished with double-figure scoring, 2 of them also with at least 10 rebounds, as the Bears rallied for a 79-64 victory over BYU on Friday night.

The Bears (8-3) trailed by as many as 11 points in the first 7½ minutes of the game but took control with a 21-2 run over the final 7½ minutes of the first half.

Baylor took the lead for good on Gary Franklin's 3-pointer, breaking a 31-31 tie with 2:05 left in the first half. Another Franklin 3-pointer just before halftime made it 40-31.

Brandon Davies had 26 points and 17 rebounds for BYU (8-4).

Isaiah Austin, a 7-foot freshman, had 14 points and 10 rebounds, while Cory Jefferson had 13 points and 16 rebounds.
