The Zags ended the regular season on a high note, as they overcame some suspect refereeing and a late push by the BYU Cougars to finally pull out a gritty victory.
Hopefully, Gonzaga can build on the confidence from such a win and secure a ticket to the Big Dance by winning the WCC Tournament. The tournament will begin this Friday, March 4, and the Zags will play their first game on Saturday against Portland.
Here is the full schedule for the WCC Tournament (all times Pacific Time)*. As a reminder, Pacific will not be participating in the conference tournament as they serve a post-season ban.
*All times unofficial at the moment.
