Niagara did a terrific job of making free throws (18-22; 81.8 percent) while BYU did a terrific job of converting from the free throw line (19-22; 86.4 percent). BYU’s Dalton Nixon led the way, contributing 15 points and eight rebounds. Meanwhile, Niagara was lifted by Matt Scott, who contributed 26 points and five rebounds.
