The consensus was that BYU wasn't much of a threat to No. 1 Gonzaga. The betting line was Gonzaga minus-20.5, and the Bulldogs were 25.5-point favorites by ESPN's Basketball Power Index.

BYU has won its last two games at Gonzaga -- by a combined four points

UPSET ALERT ON ESPN: BYU leads No. 1 Gonzaga 63-62 with 7:42 to play. The ViewFromVegas is BYU closed as a 20.5-point road underdog and +1350 on the money line (at the South Point; most Vegas books didn't even offer a money line).

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

So BYU is up one at Gonzaga with under eight minutes left...

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

BYU not going anywhere. While Nigel Williams-Goss was complaining about a non-call, Nick Emery nails his second straight 3-pointer. Mark it down, Emery-Mika-Haws combo will have Cougars in top 25 next season

LaVar Ball cleared up confusion to ESPN about being misquoted by radio station about comments on Lonzo only playing for Lakers: "All I said was that my boy is going to play for the Lakers, and I'm going to speak it into existence," LaVar told ESPN on Saturday night. "I want him to be a Laker, but I wasn't saying he's only going to play for the Lakers. I'm not trying to say he won't play for a different team. But I'd like him to play for the Lakers because it's home and I'd love him to learn from Magic (Johnson) He's the best guard ever to me, and nobody better for Lonzo to learn from than Magic Johnson."

Just a reminder: Less than a year ago, someone flew a plane over Westwood with a "Fire Steve Alford" sign trailing behind it. Talk about your all time backfires.

UCLA has some absolute ballers, man. But their defense/toughness late against both Oregon and Arizona got wins. (And they can fill it up.)

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

UCLA pulled down 37 percent of its misses at Arizona. If the Bruins do that the rest of the way, any fretting about this defense may be missing the point.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

I keep saying and thinking that UCLA has to defend to be a true contender. Bruins keep proving me wrong. So many weapons.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Northwestern hasn't punched its ticket just yet. Have now lost five of its last seven, with games against Michigan and Purdue remaining.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Kobi Simmons has been generally out of sync since going for 20 in the first UCLA meeting. 7.4 PPG in nine games since, one point in 10 mins tonight.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona has two high, high-level offensive players in Lauri Markkanen and Allonzo Trier, plus several other complementary options -- and depth for a variety of matchups and styles. They're tough, they defend, they're well-coached. High ceiling in the NCAA Tournament.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona's Allonzo Trier continuing the tear he's been on after 21 points against Washington and 25 against USC. Combined with his 16 first half points in 6-7 FG bs UCLA, Trier is shooting 67.8% from the field in his last three games including 9 of 13 from 3-point range

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

UCLA's on-pace for its worst shooting of the Pac-12 season. Bruins hit 59 percent of their 2s (as per their incredible normal) but just 24 percent of their 3s.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA led for 14 minutes of first half but the entire time it felt like the Bruins should have had a bigger cushion. Arizona closes out the half on 7-0 run for four point lead. Wildcats led the first meeting by 11 at half.
