"Defensively, it's going to be a real battle for us to contain a great scorer in Clyburn, a great dribble-penetrator in Watkins, and J.J. O'Brien has become a great rebounder in his position. Those are all things we're going to have to address and make sure we're ready for."
"They're a talented team," Emery said. "We can't doubt that."
BYU sophomore Stephen Rogers, who scored 11, including three 3-pointers at Air Force, grew up in Arizona, but he knows all about the Cougar-Ute rivalry.
"I'm very familiar with it," he said. "I have a lot of family up here. I've known about it my whole life. Obviously, we beat them pretty bad at their place. They're not going to come out flat, that's for sure. They're going to come out ready to play. It will be a fun game."
