Bulldogs crushing WCC competition
Gonzaga vs BYU Basketball Live
No. 1 Gonzaga might be getting bored by the competition in the West Coast Conference at this point. The Bulldogs were ridiculous in non-conference play, picking up wins over Kansas, Auburn, West Virginia, Iowa and Virginia. They have won all nine of their conference games by at least 15 points, including an 86-69 victory over BYU in early January. They are coming off a 76-58 win at Pacific last Thursday. Their offense ranks No. 1 in effective field goal percentage and is No. 2 in adjusted efficiency, according to KenPom. They will be facing a BYU defense that is No. 36 in adjusted efficiency, but it does not force many turnovers.
