Zag roundup

Gonzaga accomplished several things in Las Vegas. Another WCC title, revenge for losing to BYU in the regular-season finale and perhaps most importantly, the Zags seemed to find their November-January stride.

"We got back to playing the way we’ve played the majority of the season,” coach Mark Few said after his team dispatched BYU 91-75 in the title game. “Attacking on offense and being tough as nails on defense, directing shots and getting after it on the glass."

The Zags enter the NCAAs with momentum, a likely two seed and probably a short flight to Seattle or Portland.

Here's my game story, John Blanchette's column and Colin Mulvany's photos. Several Salt Lake Tribune articles at this link. Latest bracketology has BYU in as a 12 seed.
