NCAA Tournament Update: BYU Fighting Off Wofford, 33-29

BYU is having to work against Wofford in the opening ("second") round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, holding only a four-point lead at halftime. And it could be even worse than that for Cougars fans. Jimmer Fredette, for his part, has 15 points and five assists.

Late in the half, the Terriers had a chance to re-take the lead after James Anderson committed a personal foul and chased it with a technical, but Noah Dahlman missed three of his four free throw attempts. Fredette then nailed a three pointer from Jimmer range.

Dahlman leads Wofford with 11 points and five rebounds. 

Anderson is in foul trouble, with three, and the personal foul column is about the only one in which Wofford holds an advantage.
