Gonzaga still hasn’t lost since losing to Tennessee and at Carolina in back-to-back games in December. The Zags beat Santa Clara by 59 the last time out on Thursday.
You won’t see a team assist-to-turnover ratio much better than 21:2 and that’s what Gonzaga did against the Broncos. They only shot 37 percent from three but forced 18 turnovers and out-rebounded SC on the offensive boards: 12–3.
Killian Tillie has played six games off the bench now and is still getting his feet wet. He played a season-high 24 minutes in the destruction of Santa Clara but went 0-for-4 with just one point and four personal fouls.
Still, Gonzaga leads the nation in two-point percentage (62) and points per game (91.4). It’s becoming increasingly clear the Bulldogs aren’t going to lose again in the regular season and probably won’t go down in the conference tournament either. It feels like a safe bet that the Zags will be a 1-seed yet again.
This is usually always a game to watch but BYU is usually the second-best team in the West Coast Conference, sometime in the same tier at Saint Mary’s. This year, the Cougars got destroyed at SMC and also lost by 19 at San Francisco.
They do have a dynamic scoring duo in Yoeli Childs and TJ Haws, the younger brother of the former prolific BYU scorer, Tyler. They combine to average 40 and dish out 7.5 assists with about 4.7 turnovers per game.
BYU will be rocking and the Cougars are going to run and gun. If things work out, BYU will look like a team that can play with Gonzaga for five, six, even seven or eight-minute stretches but I just don’t see it happening over 40.
The Bulldogs are too sure with the ball with way too many bodies. Even on the road, they will gang up on BYU’s lack of depth and win this by 10+.
