Lahaina, Hawaii • About 14 hours after suffering one of the most heartbreaking losses in school history, the BYU Cougars bounced back with a record-setting performance at the EA Sports Maui Invitational.
BYU defeated Chaminade 121-85 in a consolation game on Tuesday afternoon, and will face Purdue at 3 p.m. MST Wednesday for fifth place.
The Cougars (4-1) fell 92-87 to No. 15 San Diego State in double overtime late Monday night, losing a five-point lead in the final minute of the first overtime.
Tuesday, Chase Fischer set a school record and tied a Maui Invitational record with 10 3-pointers and the Cougars broke a school record with 17 treys as a team. Fischer, a transfer from Wake Forest, broke Jimmer Fredette's record, which was nine. The previous team record was 15.
Fischer made his first eight three-pointers, also a school record, and finished with a career-high 30 points, despite playing just 23 minutes.
The Cougars made their first 12 three-pointers and were 14 of 18 from there in the first half in building a 66-43 lead.
They showed no effects from Monday night's marathon game, and finished 17 of 29 from long range, with the 17 three-pointers also a school record.
Tyler Haws scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half after first-half foul trouble, and Anson Winder chipped in 18. It was Haws' 53rd straight game in double figures and came on the heels of a 26-point outing against SDSU.
