BYU begins a four-game road trip tonight with a matchup in Spokane with Gonzaga. The Cougars got a rare win in The Kennel last season, but as always that will be a tough task versus a very talented Bulldogs' team.
Gonzaga is without the services of big man Przemek Karnowski, who has sat out most the issue due to back problems. Even without Karnowski, the Zags are loaded with talented roster that includes two players on the midseason Wooden Award watch list in senior Kyle Wiltjer and sophomore Domantas Sabonis. Wiltjer leads the team in scoring at 21.5 points per game and also grabs and average of 7.4 rebounds each contest. Sabonis, who has stepped up in Karnowski's absence is averaging a double with 18.9 point and 11 boards per game.
