Utah vs. Stanford key players to watch


Branden Carlson: Utah's success starts and ends with its center, Branden Carlson, who is the Utes' leader in points (17.3 per game) and rebounds (6.9 per game). They'll do their best to pound this Stanford team down low with Carlson early and often.


Maxime Carlyle: Stanford does a great job of not having its offense go through one player alone as the Cardinals have 11 different players averaging over 2.0 points per game and five different players average double-digit points per game. With that being said, Raynaud is the most important player on the team, leading the team with 9.7 rebounds and 13.5 points per game.
