The first game was in Moraga on Jan. 9. BYU was without Yoeli Childs. They lost the game in overtime, 87-84. It’s important to note that this time around, BYU will have Childs, and that the Gaels’ Tanner Krebs suffered an injury in their game Thursday.

BYU whomped on the Waves of Pepperdine Thursday, 107-80. That win brought the Cougs to 5-3 in the WCC (where they are tied for third with San Francisco). BYU’s overall record is 16-7. ESPN’s matchup predictor gives the Cougars a 70 percent chance to win this second game with the Gaels.
