PROVO, Utah -- BYU will play its second exhibition of the season Wednesday when the Cougars host the nation's No. 2-ranked Division II school in the University of Montevallo (Ala.) at 7 p.m. in the Marriott Center. KSL Newsradio will stream the game live online at KSL.com via the KSL X-Stream. Greg Wrubell will call the play-by-play action with Mark Durrant providing game analysis.

"We look forward to Wednesday's game against Montevallo," said BYU head coach Dave Rose. "Montevallo is a very athletic team that last year went 29-5 and advanced to the Elite Eight in the Division II Tournament. This year, they are expected to again be one of the top Division II teams in the nation."

Montevallo is the No. 2 pick in the Division II Bulletin Preseason Top-25 Poll. Proving they are worthy of their ranking, the Falcons battled nationally ranked Alabama on the road in their first exhibition game on Saturday before losing 81-72. The Crimson Tide is ranked No. 11 in preseason AP Top 25 Poll and No. 12 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Top 25 Poll.

The Cougars are coming off a 90-49 win over Brock University (Canada) in their exhibition opener in which 14 of the 15 BYU players scored. BYU was led by 2006 All-Mountain West Conference honorees Trent Plaisted and Keena Young with 13 points apiece.
