BYU (14-4, 2-1) fell 110-84 to No. 2 Gonzaga in its first West Coast Conference road game Thursday night at The Kennel.

Here are three keys to the Cougars’ loss:

  • Gonzaga shot 69% overall from the floor and 71% in the second half.
  • The Zags had four players score in double figures — Drew Timme (30), Andrew Nembhard (22), Julian Strawther (20), Chet Holmgren (12).
  • BYU made 13 3-pointers and Alex Barcello scored 19 points and Caleb Lohner added 17, but Gonzaga was unstoppable.
