Play of the Day – WCC Tournament – Gonzaga UCLA Down Pop
Gonzaga used this play early in the game against BYU in the WCC semifinal last night. It started with a guard running across the post players the free-throw line and catching the ball on the wing. The point guard then makes a UCLA cut off of 5. 3 then passes to 5 stepping out after the screen. Wiltjer (4) screens down for 2 in the left corner. 2 made a hard back-cut to the rim and Wiltjer popped out for a shot. He made a nice shot fake and ended up making a 1 dribble pull up as the BYU defender flew by on the closeout.
