The BYU Cougars are finally back at full strength with start forward Yoeli Childs, but they will have a tough opponent with Nevada as they are one of the top-scoring teams in the country (79.6 PPG). The Wolf Pack have a very good backcourt as Jazz Johnson (18.3 PPG), Jalen Harris (17.8 PPG, 6.7 RPG, and 4.4 APG), and Lindsey Drew (13.4 PPG and 6.1 RPG) have been the main source of production for Steve Alford, and I don’t know if BYU will have enough talent to match that. The Cougars will be able to pull this game out, especially if they feed Childs as the senior forward is averaging 21 PPG and 10.5 RPG through 2 games, but Nevada is too talented to not keep this game within reach. Final Score Prediction, BYU Cougars win but fail to cover ATS 76-73.
