The Santa Clara Broncos are desperately looking to get back on track after a tough 0-3 start to conference play in the West Coast Conference. Their challenge will not be easy on Saturday evening as they travel to take on the BYU Cougars in front of a packed house at the Marriott Center. They are 14-4 on the season, including a 3-1 record in WCC play thus far.
The Cougars are led by senior guard Noah Hartsock, who averages 17.1 points per game. Matt Carlino does a little bit of everything for BYU and is the second-leading scorer on the team, while Brandon Davies clogs up the paint and brings down rebounds at a solid rate.
Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. PT with the game being broadcast live on ESPNU. The game will be called by Dave Flemming and Sean Farnham who also called Santa Clara's 65-64 win over Villanova earlier this season. The game will also be broadcast via the Bronco Radio Network on both KDOW 1220 AM and Broncos All-Access with Anthony Passarelli on the call.
This will be a tough game for the Broncos, especially playing in front of a loud arena, but they will have a chance if they can limit turnovers and not give BYU open looks from beyond the arc.
