BYU-Gonzaga Preview

(AP) -- As Gonzaga looks to complete a historic run through the West Coast Conference, it's also preparing itself for the rigors of the upcoming postseason.

Looking to extend their school-record winning streak to 23 games, the third-ranked Bulldogs try to become the first team to go 18-0 in the West Coast Conference on Saturday night when they host surging BYU.

Having already clinched a third straight WCC title, Gonzaga (29-1, 17-0) is treating the final week of the regular season as a tuneup for tournament play while trying to bolster its chances of earning a No. 1 NCAA tournament seed. Overcoming a sluggish first half to win 59-39 over a plodding San Diego team on Thursday, the Bulldogs now host a BYU squad that leads the nation at 84.4 points per game
