Zags suffer 1st regular season loss

Before Saturday, UCLA couldn’t play defense and Gonzaga couldn’t lose.

Before Saturday, the Zags seemed immune to the wonderful zaniness that is college basketball. Five AP top-10 teams suffered losses last week, including BYU’s 79-71 stunner over No. 1 Gonzaga.

Before Saturday, Gonzaga was solidly on the No. 1 seed line and in the hunt for the top overall seed.

After Saturday, the Zags have one loss, on-court corrections to make and some openings on the bandwagon.

And the exact same list of goals they had before Saturday/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.

Question: What does Saturday loss mean for the Zags?
