All in all, the contest went the way Judkins scripted it.

"I told (Seaborn and Hamson), winning this game would be (based) on how you play today," Judkins said. "I thought they took that challenge and did a great job. I'm real proud of them."

Now comes an even bigger challenge – against WCC powerhouse Gonzaga. BYU lost both regular-season games to the Bulldogs. Gonzaga defeated the Cougars in Provo, 66-55, on Feb. 23.

As the No. 1 seed, the Zags earned a bye all the way to the semifinals.

"The advantage they have is they're rested. They're not worn out," Judkins said. "The disadvantage they have is, they haven't played in a week. Some teams respond to that, some teams can't. We're going to have to play our best. We had opportunities both times with them. We got down early at their place and fought back. At our place, it was a nip-and-tuck game. We missed opportunities."

"It's important for us to play the whole possession (against Gonzaga) because even if they don't get the first look, they've got a second and a third look," Seaborn said. "They challenge us in that aspect."
