A few notes: Robert Sacre made his first start. He played 10 minutes and didn't score. In fact, two GU starters, Sacre and Micah Downs, didn't score. A third, Jeremy Pargo, didn't score until 6:30 remained in the second half.

Josh Heytvelt scored 12 points in 24 minutes and looked much more comfortable in his second game back from a stress fracture.

GU's 18 turnovers were within one of its season high (19 vs. Texas Tech). The Zags stayed in it with 17 offensive rebounds, which led to a 19-11 edge in second-chance points, and by getting to the foul line, where they were 21 of 28.
