Since BYU beat Portland Thursday (and USF beat Pacific), the Cougars have locked up the three seed for the WCC Tourney, regardless of the outcome of BYU vs. Gonzaga. That being said, a win over the no. 6 team in the country (in front of the home crowd) would be an amazing morale boost headed into that tournament. And just in general.
It was a close one the last time these two teams faced each other, with the Bulldogs edging out the Cougars, 68-60 in Spokane. Gonzaga has already clinched a share of the WCC Title but could end up sharing it with Saint Mary’s depending on the respective results Saturday.
BYU vs. Gonzaga will be the last game of the regular season for the both teams. While BYU is coming off a win in Portland, the Zags are coming off a hard-fought victory in San Diego (77-72). Can the Cougars pull off the upset?
Here is how you can watch:
- Saturday, February 24, 6:00 p.m. MST
- Marriott Center, Provo, UT
- BYU Sports Network
- KSL NewsRadio (BYU call)
- Sirius/XM Radio Channel 143 (BYU Radio)
What does BYU need to do to get this big win? Will TJ Haws’ ankle be 100 percent after a tweak in the Portland game? Will you be in attendance at what will hopefully be an amazing Marriott Center atmosphere? Get our game thread going in the comments below.
