The Zags are in an unusual spot this week in that they may have to win the WCC Tournament to make it to the Big Dance.
I believe this is definitely true of BYU who once again is a good team but perhaps not good enough.
The action is always good between these two teams. They split the season series and the total point differential was two points. Hard to get much closer than that.
The Cougars closed their season on a down note losing at home to Gonzaga to end the year.
They have advanced to the semis of the WCC thanks to a win over Santa Clara. They got up early and held the lead the second half. It was an efficient but unspectacular appearance to set up game three between these programs.
In the home loss to the Zags the Cougars shot terribly, something that really shouldn’t at home in a big game. BYU wants to ramp up the pace and run you out of the gym but it doesn’t work if the shots are not falling.
Even when his shot if off Kyle Collinsworth is still one of the best players in the game. He has a near triple double in the loss to Gonzaga and makes sure the Cougars never go too long without some winning plays.
This is a huge game and based on what we have seen so far it should come down to the wire.
Gonzaga enjoyed another good season but they were far from invincible in the WCC. Hence they have a lot to play for tonight.
The win at BYU to close the season was big and predictably they destroyed Portland in their first WCC Tourney game.
Now that all the chips are down it is going to come down to getting the most out of their best players. Even though they have not been great at guard this season is Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis are the best players on the floor they should win – they scored more than half their points in that late season win.
Sabonis was like a man possesses against Portland scoring a team high 24 points. He can be so god but he also has a bad habit of getting into foul trouble.
Gonzaga is a very good team and it is hard to imagine March Madness without them but that is what we could be facing if they don’t win here.

Free BYU Cougars vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs CBB Prediction:
I love this rivalry. The games are exciting and interesting and almost always close. You would think it goes back longer than it does.
Of all the times they have played each other of late this one might be the most meaningful because The Zags need it too.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gonzaga -3
This one could go either way but I am not quite ready to give up on Gonzaga. This year’s games have been super tight but if they win they likely cover too.
