BYU held Weber State's Damian Lillard, the nation's leading scorer at 28.2 points per game, to a season low 15 points on Wednesday.
Jimmer Fredette played the role of Lillard on the scout team during one practice this week.
"Our guys, they know what it's like to play with the leading scorer in the country," head coach Dave Rose said. "Tonight, they were ready. (Lillard) is a terrific player. I thought we challenged his shots. The shots he made were difficult. I was really impressed with how we were consistently engaged on trying to make the game hard for him."
Weber State coach Randy Rahe credited BYU's defense.
"They did a really good job on Damian. They're big, they're strong and they're old. Their length made it really hard for us," he said. "They stayed with him and trapped him. They gave him a lot of attention with great length and great size. I don't think Damian forced much but I thought defensively they played really solid and were very aware of him and where he was on the court."
