Stephen Rogers out for BYU
BYU sixth man Stephen Rogers will miss Saturday's game against Baylor and between two to four weeks overall while recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
Rogers, a versatile 6-foot-8 forward for the Cougars, averages 9.9 points and is a top outside shooter. His loss could mean more time for freshman Damarcus Harrison, who previously averaged 11.1 minutes per game.
BYU is 8-2 and presents a formidable challenge at home for undefeated Baylor (No. 7 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP), with the Marriott Center sold out for the first time this season.
BYU forward Noah Hartsock said that Carlino's addition should help, The Deseret News of Salt Lake reported.
"It's a tough game, especially against the sixth-ranked team in the nation as his first game. But he's a good player and he's going to make some good contributions for us this year," Hartsock told the newspaper. "He's been really patient and he's worked hard. He's done a great job preparing and keeping himself in shape for this season."
