Morgan Bailey added 14 points for the Cougars (21-5, 11-4 West Coast Conference), who trailed 33-27 at the half but shot 43 percent in the second half while Gonzaga shot just 15.4 percent (6-39).

Jazmine Redmon had 15 points for the Bulldogs (23-4, 13-2), who could have clinched a 10th-straight league title.

The 6-foot-7 Hamson had just five points and fouled out in 13 minutes when BYU lost 68-62 at Gonzaga but her 18 points in the second half of the rematch was one point shy of matching the Bulldogs. With Hamson 10 of 12, BYU was 16 of 19 from the line in the second half.
