Although BYU is not the toughest opponent on Georgia State’s schedule, it does not necessarily mean that they will come out garnering an easy victory.

So far this season, BYU opened up by defeating Tennessee State, 81-66. Sophomore guard Tyler Haws led the team with 22 points.

In the other hand, Georgia State is comes from a 74-55 loss to Duke with senior Devonta White scoring a team high 19 points.
