The turning point was when Few got called with that technical with about 12:00 remaining. When the inflappable head coach lost his cool, Gonzaga started falling apart and getting visibly frustrated. BYU was down by 10 (or had just closed to within eight) at that point, and a minute and half later they were within one.

Then Mika threw Karnowski to the floor with 7:42 remaining and sealed the deal. Karnowski only had a couple of touches the rest of the game and Mika had his way from there on out--he made Karnowski look soft with that foul, and the big fella pretty timid after that.

Mika made Karnowski look like a slow oaf out there.

From the two points you mentioned (Few technical & the Mika "toss") BYU outscored Gonzaga 29-13 and 16-9 (granted the 29-13 run does encompass the 16-9 run). Dave Rose got what he wanted: a game where the pressure was on the Zags. They failed to handle it because they hadn't experienced it yet this year. BYU may have made the Zags a better team. We'll see. They don't play for over a week, we could just as easily killed their season.
BYU PER W/L Since 1988: 319-53 (.858 )
(8.4x
YDS)+(330xTD)+(100xCOM)-(200xINT)

Mika's ability to hit mid/long range 2 point shots was the key to me in this game. He forced karnowski out of the paint which opened up a lot of things for the BYU defense.

I don't know if Mika will hit that type of percentage again.
Mika = 10/14 from the floor for 29 points. That's efficient.

Gonzaga is now one win away against a 11 seeded team from getting to the Final Four.
