Checking in pregame from Clune Arena, where the Cougars and Air Force Falcons will tangle at 8 p.m. BYU's two injured players — Kyle Collinsworth and James Anderson — did not warm up and will not play. The Cougars have nine guys available tonight, and could play only seven. Trying to figure out what the crowd will look out. My best guess is 70 percent Air Force fans, 30 percent BYU fans. Lots of BYU fans brought signs, including one that says, "In Jimmer We Trust." Officials for tonight's game will be Rick Hartzell, Eric Curry and Hal Lusk. Air Force's student section — the Corps of Cadets — is sitting behind the basket in Section 8, and right near the BYU bench. It will be full and rowdy. I hope to check back at halftime. Enjoy the game.
