BYU Basketball: Luke Worthington Returns To Starting Lineup Versus Gonzaga
First time BYU has used this lineup since January 6th at Pacific.
Worthington is a team captain for BYU hoops
A game between two of the West Coast Conference’s premier teams is about to tip-off in Spokane between BYU and No. 14 Gonzaga.
BYU going with a different wrinkle in this game to try and take down the Zags for the fourth consecutive time in The Kennel.
Dave Rose has announced that Luke Worthington, not Zac Seljaas will start in the frontcourt alongside Yoeli Childs.
Worthington is a team captain for this BYU squad and he started every game for the Cougar Cagers until a loss at Pacific caused Rose to turn to Seljaas in the starting five.
BYU’s record with Worthington in the starting lineup this season is 14-4. Worthington earned a start last week against Pacific in Provo due to Yoeli Childs battling an illness.
Rose is likely making this decision because of Gonzaga’s size down low. The Zags have three players who stand at 6’10” or taller on their roster. Gonzaga is talented and deep once again, but they’ve been that the last three years the Cougars have traveled to Spokane.
