|On Tuesday, Brandon Davies was dismissed from the team for the remainder of the season.|
Davies' departure means the Cougars will have to make a major adjustment inside with 6-foot-8 Stephen Rogers and seldom-used 6-foot-10 James Anderson. The move means BYU coach Dave Rose might have to shift the 6-foot-5 Charles Abouo to power forward and go with a smaller lineup.
According to a member of the BYU basketball staff, the plan is likely to go small and continue to push the tempo to exploit BYU's ability to run and get more shots for Fredette.
SDSU coach Steve Fisher called the Cougars one of the best running teams in the country and now, without Davies, the Cougars will likely try to be even more effective on the break. The problem is that Davies ran the court exceptionally well for BYU as a big.
