Coming up: Gonzaga Bulldogs

COMING UP: Tonight at BYU, 8 (ESPN2); Saturday vs. Portland, 2 (Fox 28)

OUTLOOK: No. 2 Gonzaga will be the highest ranked opponent to visit the Marriott Center since it opened in 1971. BYU entertained No. 2 UCLA in March 2005, and No. 2 St. Joseph’s in December 2005, at the Smith Fieldhouse. The Cougars are just 6-5 in their last 11, including two losses at the Marriott Center, where they’re 115-10 under eighth-year head coach Dave Rose. BYU had dropped two straight home games prior to GU’s visit last season but the Cougars won 83-73. Tyler Haws (20.9 ppg) has scored at least 20 points in 19 games. Brandon Davies has eight double-doubles this season.
