PROVO, Utah — Stacy Davis came off the bench for the first time this season and responded with 23 points and 8 rebounds to lead Pepperdine to a 67-61 win over BYU on Thursday.

The Waves (10-5, 3-1 West Coast Conference) never trailed and made all the clutch plays after the Cougars (13-5, 3-2) cut a double-figure deficit to one with 2:03 left.
