The Cougars, who nearly knocked off top-seeded Gonzaga in the WCC conference game, will take on UCLA — which survived a tight overtime battle against Michigan State in the First Four on Thursday night — in their first round matchup Saturday. If they bring that testing energy to the court, BYU should have no problem finding its rhythm in Indianapolis.
