Coming off a solid week with a pair of wins, BYU is preparing for Saturday's showdown at home against Pepperdine.

Coach Dave Rose looks back on the past week, including a victory over No. 24 Gonzaga, and he also looks ahead, in the latest episode of "BYU Basketball with Dave Rose."

In his latest projections, CBSSports.com contributor Jerry Palm has the Cougars as a No. 12 seed, playing a first-round game against Seton Hall.

According to the Sacramento Bee, former BYU star and NBA rookie, Jimmer Fredette "walked into a mess" when he joined the Sacramento Kings.

"Jimmer Fredette is a rookie, and he will be a rookie next week and the week after that," writes Ailene Voisin. "So for those wondering why the former Brigham Young University standout has spent the past two games on the bench — and hello to all you impassioned tweeters from Utah — that's the short answer. The long answer is that Fredette walked into a mess."

A Jimmer fan has looked into Fredette's ancestry and found some interesting discoveries about his family tree.
