BYU is the better team make no mistake about that. They have the one of the best players in the country with Jimmer Fredette, however Wofford should not be taken lightly or BYU could lose, because they have forward Noah Dahlman. Dahlman is no stranger to good basketball as his grandfather is John Kundla who is a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame who was the coach for the Minneapolis Lakers and led them to five NBA titles. His brother just recently finished up a four-year career at Michigan State.

Dahlman is a star player who was the 2010 Southern Conference player of the year and was a three-time first team all-conference player. Dalhman plays power forward and with BYU missing out on Brandon Davies the Cougars will most likely be placing Noah Hartsock or possibly Charles Abouo. Dahlman will be a tough player to stop and I am not sure BYU can really slow him down, however he is not the only person BYU needs to worry about. Dahlman will need to have a career game to take out BYU.

Wofford also has Cameron Rundles and Jamar Diggs who score 14 and 12 points respectively, so Wofford can score and keep up with BYU. One aspect of this game that helps BYU is that Wofford is one of the worst rebounding teams in the country. This helps out BYU since they are thin on big men now that Davies is out. 

The backcourt is where BYU has an edge with Jimmer Fredette and Jackson Emery or really mainly because of Fredette and his scoring ability. 

Here is audio from Wednesday's press conference.
