1. Junior Tyler Haws scored 31 points for BYU, making 8-15 2s, 2-3 3s, and 9-13 FTs. It was the fourth time in his career he's scored at least 30 points.
2. BYU attempted 43 free throws. The most they attempted last year was 33 at Loyola Marymount. The last time they attempted more than 43 was in a win over Portland in February, 2012.
3. Chasson Randle scored a career high 33 points for Stanford. You have to go back to February 4th, 2010 to find a game where a Stanford player scored more points. On that day it was Landry Fields dropping 35 on UCLA.
4. Stanford committed 16 turnovers.The Cardinal only turned the ball over that many times in 5 games last year. Of course, this was a ridiculous 89 possession game, meaning Stanford turned it over on 18% of their possessions, which would have been well below last year's NCAA average of 20%.
5. The teams combined for 215 points. It was the most scored by BYU since 1993, and the most allowed by Stanford since 1977. The point totals will get a lot of notice in the media, but since it was such a high possession game, it wasn't far out of the ordinary. BYU scored 1.26 points per possession which would have been their 6th best effort last year. Stanford scored 1.16 points per possession, which would have been their 8th best game last year.
