Observer News ServicesDecember 29, 2012 

— Tyler Haws scored a career-high 42, including six 3-pointers, and Brigham Young routed Virginia Tech 97-71 Saturday in the Cougars’ final warm-up before West Coast Conference play next week.

Haws had a chance to tie a school record the last time BYU played at the Utah Jazz arena in Salt Lake City after opening the season with six straight 20-point games. But the sophomore fell two points short in a blowout victory over Montana on Nov. 28.

By then the Cougars (10-4) were leading 56-31 against a Hokies team that has dropped its last two by a combined 62 points.

Erick Green, the nation’s leading scorer, finished with 12 points on 4 of 17 shooting for Virginia Tech (9-4).

Maryland 79, Delaware State 50: Freshman Charles Mitchell came off the bench and scored a season-high 19 in College Park, Md., and the Terps extended their winning streak to 11 games.

Dez Wells and freshman Seth Allen each scored 10 points for the Terrapins (11-1). Mitchell also had 14 rebounds for his third double-double.

Maryland has not lost since falling to then-No. 1 Kentucky 72-69 in the season opener. The current winning streak is Maryland’s longest in 10 years.

Florida St. 82, Tulsa 63: Terrance Shannon scored a career-high 16 off the bench in Sunrise, Fla., to help the Seminoles to a win in the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic.

Florida State (8-4) extended its winning streak to four games and remained unbeaten in four games against Tulsa (7-6).

Boston College 70, Holy Cross 60: Patrick Heckmann connected on five 3-pointers en route to 19 points, Ryan Anderson scored 18 and grabbed 10 rebounds and the Eagles won in Boston in the 112th meeting between the intrastate rivals.

The Eagles (7-5) earned their fourth straight win. They’ve won 17 of the last 19 meetings with Holy Cross (7-6), located about 35 miles away in Worcester.

Georgia Tech 73, Fordham 48: Center Daniel Miller scored 14 points and added nine rebounds to help the Yellow Jackets (9-2) stroll past the Rams (3-10) at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta.

Georgia Tech, which shot 50 percent from the floor, led by just 10 at halftime but outscored Fordham 38-23 in the second half.
