— BYU center Jennifer Hamson, who nearly recorded a triple-double in an NCAA tournament upset of North Carolina State, is receiving a lot of attention as the Cougars meet Nebraska today at 7 p.m. MDT.

The Cornhuskers are wary of Hamson in tonight's NCAA women's tournament game. The winner goes to the Sweet 16.

Former Cougar linebacker Kyle Van Noy is compared to Tyrann Mathieu in terms of his ability to disrupt opposing offenses, a trait that NFL teams are looking for in the upcoming draft.

Will Van Noy be a first-round pick?
