    A couple of interesting tidbits on Saturday's game.

    - BYU is undefeated in conference play at home this year.
    - The Lady Zags are surprisingly shooting a better overall percentage and scoring more points than BYU.
    - Cassie Broadhead Devashrayee has her flopping down to a science as she is 2nd in the nation in FT attempts and 4th in FTs made.
    - 6'7" Freshman center, Sara Hamson, is second in the nation in blocked shots per game and 3rd in blocked shots.
    - As a team BYU ranks 8th nationally in blocked shots and 9th in blocked shots per game.

    Looks like points in the paint maybe be a little more difficult this week. May need to pull young Ms. Hamson out of the key.

    We have our targets. Let's go get some Puddy Tat.

    Go Zags,

    Bulldogs Take 13-Game Win Streak Into Provo

    GU has held opponent under 50 points four times in last six games


    Feb. 2, 2018

    Gonzaga Notes


    Gonzaga (18-4, 11-0 WCC) at BYU (13-9, 8-3 WCC)

    Feb. 3, 2018 | 1 p.m. PT | BYUTV | 94.1 KJRB FM (Steve Myklebust)
    Provo, Utah | Marriott Center (18,987) | BYUTV.org | Live Stats



    INSIDE THE JCP:

    - Gonzaga made it 13-straight wins and 11-0 in West Coast Conference action with another dominant second and third quarters at San Diego on Thursday night, winning 63-44.
    - Jill Barta led all scorers with 13 points, and Chandler Smith added 12 points and led with seven boards. Laura Stockton scored nine and Jessie Loera had seven, with each of them grabbing three steals as Gonzaga had 11 as a team off 18 USD turnovers. GU shot 46 percent, holding USD to 31 percent.
    - A true team effort for GU, 10 players scored and eight had rebounds. GU dominated points in the paint, 30-18.
    - The Zags held a team below 50 points for the fifth time this season and fourth time in six games.

    NOW IT GETS FUN:

    - The Zags have started WCC play with a 11-0 record just four times prior in their history, most recently in 2014-15. In three of those cases the Zags went undefeated in conference play at 14-0, prior to BYU and Pacific joining the West Coast Conference.
    - The Zags started 15-0 in head coach Lisa Fortier’s first season in 2014-15.

    SERIES HISTORY:

    - The Zags lead the back-and-forth all-time series 13-9.
    - GU is 3-5 all-time at BYU. The Zags won the first game they played there in 1994, 75-67, as part of the Holiday Classic.
    - Gonzaga last won there on February 28, 2015, 73-66. Elle Tinkle scored 20 points in that game and the Zags matched the most league wins in West Coast Conference history with the regular season finale victory with 16. Last season, BYU won 63-71, as BYU had a 15-0 fourth-quarter run and Zykera Rice scored 13 off the bench with six rebounds
    - Gonzaga head coach Lisa Fortier is 4-3 against the Cougars winning both regular-season meetings in 2015, and the home games in 2016 and 2017. 17th-year BYU head coach Jeff Judkins is 7-12 against Gonzaga.
    - GU’s last win against BYU was at home last season, as the Zags shot 68 percent from three, making 17 of their 25 attempts, school records in percentage and made threes. Those marks also set new highs inside the McCarthey Athletic Center, for either the Zag men or women. Emma Stach led the Zags going five-of-seven from deep for 17 points, a career high. She added seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals
    - Gonzaga’s win streak of four from 2013-14 is the longest in the series, as BYU has never won more than two-straight games.
    - Gonzaga leads 8-4 all-time in West Coast Conference regular-season meetings, which began when BYU joined the conference in 2011-12.

    SCOUTING THE COUGARS:

    - The Cougars started the WCC season 6-1, but have lost two of their last four. BYU completed a season sweep over Saint Mary’s.
    - Nationally, the Cougar team ranks eighth in blocked shots per game at 6.4.
    - Last year’s WCC Player of the Year Cassie Devashrayee averages 20.2 points per game to lead the Cougars and the West Coast Conference. She logs heavy minutes at 38.6 per game and played all 40 in Thursday’s 62-52 win over Loyola Marymount.
    - Breanna Chase, 13.6 per game, and Malia Nawahine, 10 per game, join her in double figures.
    - Six-foot-seven freshman Sara Hamson leads on the glass at 6.8 boards per game and has blocked 80 shots, second in the nation.
    - BYU played three Pac-12 teams and one team from the SEC in its nonconference schedule, going 1-3 in those games.
    - The Cougars shoot 68 percent from the field, but have a negative -1.4 rebounding margin and negative -.5 turnover margin. They do average four more blocks per game than their opponent.
    - BYU has won 23-straight home WCC games, with Gonzaga’s 2015 win being their last loss to a WCC team in the Marriott Center.

    BACK-LOADED SCHEDULE:

    - The Zags have a back-loaded WCC schedule with five of their last eight games in conference coming against San Diego, BYU, and Saint Mary’s. The Zags have never played five games against those opponents in a single month.
    - The Zags were 5-1 in those games last year, just dropping the game at BYU. They also went 5-1 in 2014-15, losing at San Diego, and 2012-13, losing at Saint Mary’s, the best marks since BYU joined the conference in 2011.
    - In the remaining games, home and away against BYU, and at home against Saint Mary’s and USD, GU is 31-10 since 2011.

    THE SECOND, AND THE THIRD:

    - Gonzaga has outscored their opponent by 118 points in the second quarter this year, and 62 in the third quarter.
    - The Bulldogs have an average lead of 12.14 points when entering the fourth quarter...

    Apparently, TheW.tv will not be steaming online the Gonzaga - BYU game on Saturday. The game will be streamed online through the BYUTV.org though plus the tv broadcast on BYU TV.

    CLF can OWN THE PAINT, simply by speeding the game up......you have 4 bigs who can run the floor.....guards who can facilitate the uptempo game.....their 7' ft'er will have her tongue hanging out by half! 3/4 trap defense ... and BYU won't know what hit them. They simply cannot keep up with your over-all speed and tough defense! Pacific made it look easy when BYU was in Stockton @ Spanos! Win number 12 for the taking....... go zag's!

    Like your train of thought Kemo. Getting their key players in foul trouble and harassing them on defense always works for me, and we have the depth to run them into the ground. Last game there top scorer Devashrayee played the whole game 40 minutes, and usually plays the nearly the whole game averages around 38 minutes. Wear them down. Get a lot of charging fouls hope Laura Stockton has been tutoring the Wirth sisters on this.

    This a really good 3 point range shooting team Broadhead, Nawahine, Chase, and Johnson all shoot above 30%. Going to have to stay on them from 3 point range to win.

    Get #20 Devashrayee out of the game or limit her points would also contribute to a win. She was the player of the year in WCC WBB. She gunning for it again this year averaging 20 points a game. We need this win we will very likely play then two more times.

    Barta a monster in the 1st half.

    Zags up 38-26 at half time. JL screwed up big time 1st half fouled Devashrayee on 3 point shot and then fouled her again JL played horrible 1st half. ZR 0-5 made 2 free throws did not look good. LS made a couple of stupid turnovers but made a couple of nice plays also. ES made two 3 pointers early, wrestled giant on the floor for jump ball. ES looks good early then looked sloppy 2nd quarter stupid fouls on their best free throw shooter. We need to stop having fouls on Devashrayee.

    Only Zag looking good 1st half Jill Barta 19 point 10 rebounds last count. Only termed full court press once and it worked. Not playing a lot of pressure on defense so far. We played very slow in 2nd quarter.

    Good first half.

    Barta playing exceptional. A double-double at halftime.

    Defense giving up some wide-open shots due to sagging in the key. BYU helping out by missing many of the wide open shots only shooting 31% overall and 22% from 3-pt. Don't expect that to continue, need to tighten-up the defense some in the second half.

    Offensively, we need to get Rice, Smith and Loera going to reduce the load on Barta. Also need to reduce the number of turnovers in the 2nd half.

    Let's finish this Zags.

    ZAGS choking 21 point lead down to 8 points not playing aggressive and BYU pressure successful. Lead went down from 21 to 8 points in fourth quarter in a 4 minute time frame. Zags decided to sit on their lead in 4th quarter hate that conservative approach. Its like prevent defense in football how many time have we not seen that cost teams the game.

    As always under CLF, we try to run the clock out and we quit running our offense.

    Just play the game, quit trying to play safe. The prevent defense prevents teams from winning.

    Oh, and start hitting your free throws.

    Zags win 84-70. Jill Barta 34 points, 15 Rebounds, 12-14 free throws, 4-5 3s. Emma Stach 16 points great shooting night was 3-5 3 pointers. Emma carried team in 4th quarter JB iced with free throws.

    Jill Barta showed she is best player in conference this year with her performance tonight!!! Chandler Smith looked good getting rebounds today made them look easy ended up with 9 rebounds, Chandler also had 7 assists. Stockton had 8 assists but played some sloppy ball in 2nd half and made a half effort to get a pass from JL in the lane.

    Townsend had good night 3-3 FG 6 Points, 2 were from a nice assist from Stockton who had 8 assists and clearly outplayed Loera who just never seemed to find the game today. The Wirth sisters made 3 nice jumpers between them. Jill Barta was clutch, way to go JB!!!!

    ZR off today 1-12 FG taking long jumpers when she could have got closer missed a easy wide open layup also. Rice did end up with 7 rebounds. Barta shot lights out tonight 9-10 FG, other than the two missed free throws JB was almost perfect tonight!

    ZAGS as a team were 8-16 3 Pointers, 24-31 Free Throws. Zags out rebounded BYU 45-29.

    Good 1,2,3 quarters, Shaky 4th quarter. Judkins clearly out coached CLF in 4th quarter. BYU full court trap we had no answer for in 4th quarter. Luckily for us we had a large lead blowout of 23 point that went down to 8 points in 4 minutes in 4th quarter that was painful to watch.


    Great Road win Lady ZAGS Sweet!!!!

    Barta also passed Jennifer Mountain to move into #8 on the career scoring list. I'd give her very good chance to pass Kayla Standish by the conclusion of the WCC tournament. I'd say she needs on the order of 150 points, with 6 regular season games left and up to three at the West Coast tournament in Las Vegas! And then the possibility to add even more in the NCAA's, assuming of course they get an invite!

    Would like to note BYU stream was awesome they did a much better job than SWX ever does, and the broadcasters were unbiased and did a great job. They were impressed by our Freshman. But they did correctly note that the Wirth sisters play soft underneath the basket. Which showed their knowledge of our team also.

    BYU was off their 3 point shooting tonight 3-18 although they had numerous wide open looks, fortunate for us they didn't go in.

    It was easy to see why Devashrayee was player of the year last year as she his a great player finished with 24 points, 8-9 free throws. She was 8-19 FG. She was giving us fits on defense and because of her Emma fouled out near the end of the game. However would still have voted for JB last year LOL.

    Hey we busted BYU 2 year winning streak at home. Great to see us to take it to BYU at home. Great game plan for first 3 quarter CLF and ZAGS coaching staff.

    Here is BYU's take on the game this afternoon:

    Cougars fall to Bulldogs 84-70

    PROVO, Utah – Cassie Broadhead Devashrayee’s 24 points were not enough as the BYU women’s basketball team lost to Gonzaga 84-70 Saturday afternoon at the Marriott Center.

    “I want to give Gonzaga a lot of credit,” BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. “They played really well today, especially (Jill) Barta. They are really hard to guard because they spread you out so well. We were too anxious and missed a lot of open shots we usually hit. The positive thing is that we hung in there as poor as we shot the ball today. I am proud of my team and I thought some of the girls showed some things tonight that they can build on.”

    BYU (13-10, 8-4 WCC) couldn’t match Gonzaga’s (19-4, 12-0 WCC) 48.1 percent shooting from the field. Devashrayee scored 24 points to lead the Cougars in scoring. Teammates Sara Hamson and Malia Nawahine were the only others to score in the double digits, with 10 points each. Gonzaga’s Jill Barta scored 34 points to go along with 15 rebounds.

    Hamson took control of the paint early on, grabbing three offensive rebounds and blocking a Bulldog shot. Gonzaga took a 6-0 lead after back-to-back 3-pointers.

    Nawahine scored a 3-pointer to give BYU its first points of the game, but the Bulldogs answered with a pair of free throws and their third 3-pointer to make the score 11-3 with 6:11 left in the period.

    Brenna Chase scored her first points of the contest on a driving layup after a Gonzaga jumper. The Bulldogs answered with six-straight points to make the score 17-5.

    Shalae Salmon scored a basket in the post and Nawahine scored her second 3-pointer of the contest to make the score 19-10. Gonzaga scored a layup on the ensuing possession and led BYU 21-10 at the end of the first period. The Bulldogs had no trouble scoring after shooting 61.5 percent from the field to start.

    Maria Albiero scored the first basket of the second period for the Cougars and Devashrayee hit all three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point shot to cut the Bulldog’s lead down to 21-15.

    Gonzaga’s Barta made her third 3-pointer of the contest to push the Bulldogs' lead to 28-17. Barta scored 19 points after not missing any of her six first half shots or four free throws.

    Hamson scored on back-to-back BYU possessions with a jump shot and a layup to cut the lead to 32-23 with 3:27 left in the second quarter.

    Devashrayee scored her eighth point and her sixth free throw of the half with Salmon scoring a jumper for the Cougar’s last basket of the half. Gonzaga made a pair of free throws to make the score 38-26 going into halftime.

    BYU opened up the second half scoring four-straight points, fueled by a layup by Hamson and a basket by Devashrayee. Gonzaga answered with seven-straight points of its own to regain the 45-30 lead .

    Devashrayee scored her 14th point on a jump shot to stop the Bulldogs’ run. Both teams traded baskets until Gonzaga took a 17-point lead of 53-36 with 3:18 left in the third period.

    The Cougars scored twice in the final minute of the period after Devashrayee found Nawahine under the basket for a layup on the final two offensive possessions. The Bulldogs finished the period with a basket at the buzzer to lead the Cougars 59-42.

    Gonzaga continued their hot shooting and outscored the Cougars 7-2 to start the fourth period. Liz Eaton and Hamson scored for BYU on back-to-back possessions as the two teams continued to trade baskets.

    BYU trailed the Bulldogs by a game-high 21 points with 6:42 left. A pair of free throws by Hamson and a layup by Chase helped the Cougars start a run of their own. A basket and 3-pointer by Paisley Johnson capped off an 11-1 run to make the score 70-60 with 4:05 left.

    Gonzaga stopped the run with a jumper and answered with a 9-2 run to push the lead to 17. Devashrayee scored five of BYU’s eight points in the final minute of the game. The Cougar’s run came up short as they fell to the Bulldogs 84-70.

    The Cougars remain in second place in the WCC standings, four games behind the Bulldogs. BYU will continue conference play on the road next to take on Santa Clara on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 7:00 p.m. PST at the Leavey Event Center in Santa Clara, California. The game can be streamed live on TheW.tv.

    From ZagDad84's post: The crowd of 1,327 at the game against Gonzaga makes for the largest attendance at the Marriott Center in conference play this season. Quite a turnout considering student enrollment at 33,000 plus! It's great to be a Zag!
