THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — BYU sophomore right-hander Kolton Mahoney threw the seventh no-hitter in school history, striking out 11 in a 5-0 victory over Nicholls State on Thursday.

Mahoney, from West Point, Utah, walked two in a 102-pitch performance for BYU's first no-hitter since John DeSilva tossed one in 1989 against Colorado State.

"Everything was working," said Mahoney, who also got a few nice defensive plays from his teammates to preserve the no-no. "I started to feel it in the sixth or seventh inning. I knew it was definitely there going into the ninth inning and I wasn't going to go for anything less."

Mahoney improved to 2-2 for the Cougars (6-8), while Brandon Jackson (1-1) took the loss for the Colonels (6-7).

"By the second or third inning, you could tell he had the kind of stuff that he could do it," BYU coach Mike Littlewood said of Mahoney.
