Gonzaga-BYU: 3 keys to the Bulldogs’ 74-54 victory

UPDATED: Tue., March 6, 2018


Key moment

The key moment lasted a long time. Gonzaga outscored BYU 36-4 with a run that started late in the first half and continued until the halfway through the second half. When it was over, Gonzaga led 63-31.

Offensive player of the game

Make it a clean sweep of this category for Killian Tillie in the three tournament games. The sophomore forward had 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting. He finally missed a 3-pointer after 11 straight makes in the tournament, but still hit 3 of 4 from distance.

Defensive player of the game

Johnathan Williams did an outstanding job on BYU star forward Yoeli Childs, who had 18 points in the first half, but just two in the second. Williams showed off his athleticism by helping on ball-screen coverage and recovering to guard Childs. Williams blocked two shots. Childs finished 7 of 16 from the field.
