What challenges does BYU present for the Badgers?
Friday November 26, 2010 6:54 MKM

Allison Metcalf: 
Sorry for the delay---had to pause for the National Anthem. BYU is known for their full-court press defense. Usually they play man-to-man, but they are known for the constant pressure that they put on their opponents defensively. Offensively, they run a lot of motion offense and try to use back screens to provide 3-point opportunities.

It sounds like BYU is more athletic and has more speed.

I wouldn't say that they are more athletic. There are three things that stand out with their offense tonight: 1) They run the ball up the floor quickly, preventing the Badgers' from setting up their defense 2) The Cougars currently boast five from downtown...the Badgers only have one 3) BYU has been able to take care of the ball with just six turnovers to the Badgers' 11
