LAS VEGAS – BYU’s Elijah Bryant has had mixed results against the Zags in two previous matchups this season.

The 6-foot-5 wing struggled throughout a 68-60 loss in Spokane, making just 1 of 11 shots and scoring four points. He had a hot stretch in the first half in Provo – scoring 13 points in nine minutes – but struggled in the closing half. He didn’t have a field goal in the closing 20 minutes and finished with 16 points on 5-of-17 shooting.

Gonzaga has had success with a tag-team approach on Bryant, who logs heavy minutes. Zach Norvell Jr., Corey Kispert and Jeremy Jones took turns defending Bryant in the first meeting. The Zags usually have a wing, Norvell or Kispert, on Bryant, but 6-8 Rui Hachimura is a potential option.
