The Zags are coming off an easy victory over Portland to draw the BYU Cougars for the WCC Tournament semi-finals. It will be the second time in a little over a week since the two WCC teams have met.
Of course, last time around, the Zags spoiled BYU's party in the last home game of their season, escaping with a 71-68 win. BYU is looking for revenge, and like Gonzaga, also looking for a spot in the WCC Tournament championship game.
However, as close as it has been between these two teams in the regular season, things get a bit out of hand in the WCC Tournament. Last season, Gonzaga won their game against BYU on the road by seven points and lost at home by three points. The WCC Tournament championship game wasn't even close, with the Zags winning by 16 points.
Can we expect more of that this year? Eric McClellan dropped a season high 26 points on Portland and primed himself to be that player that steps up. Domantas Sabonis had his 19th double-double on the season against Portland. The Zags need to continue their strong play to hold off a BYU team that can score with the best of 'em.
