    I think you’re thinking about Bronson Kaufusi, Corbin was actually a solid big from what I remember.

    I have not seen BYU play this year but here is a bit of data from ESPN.com

    Top scorer is Barcello a guard that averages 16.9 ppg and has made 29 of 46 three point attempts for an amazing 63% to date. He averages 4.8 assists per game
    Center Haarms from the Netherlands averages 11 ppg and is 7'3" @250#. He averages 2 blocks per game
    Averette is a 5'11" guard transfer from Utah Valley that averages 10.8 ppg
    The remainder of the roster is pretty ho hum. Not bad but nothing stands out

    The Cougars have had some good wins over St Johns, Utah, Utah State and SDSU by 10 points. They have lost to USC and Boise State

    Based on such limited information, nor any top 25 contests to go on here they look very beatable compared to the tests the Zags have faced.
    Zags 95
    Cougars 74

    Few will not allow a blowout and if the lead gets to 30 he will clear the bench
    One of the greatest stories in basketball history...Gonzaga!

    BYU will be the best team GU has yet faced outside of that top 20 group. Well-coached with a sniper who will feast on our laissez faire 3 point D and a decent big, it'll be a close game. But Zags win by 12, and would-be GU star Jesse Wade drops a 3.

    Was curious as to how he's been doing so checked on his stats. Wade has played in 4 out of BYU's 11 games. Averaging under 8 mins/game. Has attempted 6 3-pointers all season, made two of them.

    Fair enough, just looked at his stats, and they suggest he had rotation minutes at BYU. Not a scorer, but probably a disruptive post presence. That was probably important against teams with 7 footers like Karno and Kelly.

    - i'd like to see cook back on the floor
    - i'd like to see suggs play a whole game up right, no more lunges and leaps out of bounds for loose balls.

    Would love to see Suggs have a complete game. 17 points and 7 assists. No unnecessary fouls. No driving into traffic with no way out. Just being patient. BYU always plays us tough at least once a year. Gotta go with the Zags.

    Looking forward to this game. I need it after all the chaos in our country's capitol today. I need a good reason to smile and feel my joy again. Thank God for Gonzaga basketball. I love this team, and am waiting for a game to be very very entertaining and get my head back into the joy.

    A bit more incentive in this matchup than with USF. Hope to see Suggs and Ayayi run the floor with abandon leading to quick transition buckets. Timme with a double-double. Continued improvement from Ballo, especially on defense. So looking forward to enjoying the ESPN announcers in this one.

    18 pt favorites......seems like lot but Matt Haarms, Barcello and a few other could make it interesting. Jesse's doing ok but he was out last year as well. So he's an "elder" in the full sense of the word. I like the Zags by 15. BYU has a very big team with talent. Not sure we can match that. It'll be interesting. Zags should run..and run.....
