PROVO, Utah (AP) Chase Fischer scored 25 points and Nick Emery added 21 to help BYU beat San Francisco 102-92 on Saturday night.

Zac Seljaas chipped in 20 points for BYU (12-5, 3-1 West Coast Conference), which scored its most points of the season and plays at conference-leader Gonzaga (13-3, 5-0) on Thursday.

San Francisco (9-7, 3-3) had a two-point lead with 2:47 left in the first half. Fischer made a 3-pointer, sparking a 9-1 spurt to give BYU a 51-45 halftime lead and the Cougars led the rest of the way.

Seljaas' 3-pointer stretched BYU's lead to ten points early in the second half. Uche Ofoegbu scored on a dunk, and Ronnie Boyce III made back-to-back jumpers to pull the Dons to 80-74 with 7:18 remaining. Fischer and Seljaas answered with consecutive 3-pointers to push the Cougars' lead back to 10 points with six minutes left and BYU cruised from there.
