Baylor coach Scott Drew is looking forward to Saturday’s visit to BYU, which will be his team’s toughest game so far this year, according to ESPN.com.

"The Cougars have been nearly unbeatable, with one loss in the past 49 games at the Marriott Center," writes Andy Katz. "BYU coach Dave Rose said the Cougars will have to pick up the pace to get space on rebounding against the Bears. BYU likely won’t be able to rebound in the halfcourt against Baylor’s length (see Perry Jones III and Quincy Acy). This game has to be up and down for BYU to have a shot. Meanwhile, the Bears get Cal transfer guard Gary Franklin eligible for this game, deepening an already solid perimeter."

Former BYU star Jimmer Fredette is attracting a lot of attention with the Sacramento Kings. Jimmer talks to the Sacramento media in this interview. Yes, it appears Jimmer is fitting in quite nicely in Sacramento.

Finally, BYU offers a lighthearted tutorial on taking a charge, with cameo appearances by Tom Holmoe and Chad Lewis.
