Tonight’s Action

Brigham Young vs. Gonzaga

Watch: 9 p.m. ET, ESPN

Odds: Gonzaga -14 || O/U 155

Pick: Top-ranked Gonzaga (25-0) swept the season series between the schools, winning 86-69 on Jan. 7 and 82-71 on Feb. 8. BYU (20-5) is no pushover and could make the West Coast Conference final a good one. 

We obviously like Gonzaga to win, but we’re taking the points and rooting for the dog. Both teams can fill it up so take the over.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner, score, and first goal-scorer of Wild-Golden Knight. Minnesota won 2-0 and Kevin Fiala scored first. 

No one — including Sports Section — saw rookie goaltender Kaapo Kahkonen recording his first career shutout to lead the Wild.
