Provo, UT (SportsNetwork. Manny Ramirez Jersey .com) - Kyle Wiltjer scored 24 points to help No. 8 Gonzaga make a second-half comeback for an 87-80 win over Brigham Young in a West Coast Conference opener on Saturday. Kevin Pangos added 21 points on 5-of-8 shooting from 3-point range and also dished out seven assists for the Bulldogs (12-1, 1-0 WCC). Gonzaga received 15 points and 10 rebounds from Byron Wesley. Gonzaga trailed by six a few minutes into the second half, but the Bulldogs were able to come from behind by limiting BYU to 32.1 percent shooting in the second half, including 2-of-13 from long distance. The Cougars (10-4, 0-1) got 13 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds from Kyle Collinsworth for his second triple-double of the season, but it was not enough. Tyler Haws and Anson Winder led BYU with 17 points each. BYU made just three of its first 15 attempts from the floor as Gonzaga jumped out to a 16-point lead. From there, the Cougars made six straight shots to cut the Bulldogs lead to 35-31 with 4:18 left in the half. At the buzzer, Collinsworth hit a long 3-pointer to tie the game at 43 going into the break. The Bulldogs could not get a stop over the final nine minutes and the Cougars made 11 of their last 15 shots to close the half. Out of the break, Brigham Young took its first lead of the game on three consecutive Hawes free throws to open the half. The Cougars led by as much as six after a 6-0 spurt, but their shooting struggles returned. While BYU missed its first nine attempts from long distance in the second half, Gonzaga made four in a three minute span to retake the lead with 12 minutes remaining. Frank Bartley IV responded by hitting three straight free throws, but Gonzaga took the lead for good after two straight baskets from Wiltjer. The Cougars forced one more tie at 67 before Wiltjer and Pangos scored eight straight points for the Bulldogs to get some breathing room. Skyler Halford finally ended Brigham Youngs 3-point drought with six minutes to go, and he hit another less than a minute later to pull the Cougars within four. BYU only made one more shot from the floor after that, and Gonzaga made its free throws to hold onto the lead. Game Notes Gonzaga was picked first in the preseason WCC poll, and BYU was picked second ... Gonzaga has won 19 conference openers in a row ... Pangos moved into the top-10 on Gonzagas all-time scoring list ... Both teams will take the floor again Monday with Gonzaga traveling to San Diego and BYU hosting Portland. Brandon Guyer Jersey . -- Athletics manager Bob Melvin is already starting to run out of superlatives to describe Scott Kazmir. Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey . For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11. http://www.indiansteamproshop.com/Indians-Yan-Gomes-Kids-Jersey/ . Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema scored two goals each Wednesday night in a 6-1 rout of Schalke in the first leg of their second-round matchup. "We played a very, very good match," Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. "We got well into the match, scored two early goals and that opened the game and left us able to counter and to use the speed of our players.The old adage a week is a long time in politics will likely be ringing in Collen Warners ears as he made his way to join up with his new teammates at BMO Field Friday morning. For a player who started all nine league games this season, often out of his central midfield holding role to an attacking berth out on the flank, the last image Impact supporters are left with is of the long walk to the locker room for Warner following his red card against the MLS Champs last Saturday afternoon at Saputo Stadium. We all know how that game finished. A fifth league defeat in a season that appears to be getting further away from a club which is desperate to make amends for how their 2013 campaign ended. For a team that less than 72-hours earlier had lost to Edmonton, a team at the bottom of the NASL standings, the Sporting KC defeat compounded the misery that has engulfed the club. Joey Saputo let it be known changes would be coming. His tweet last Saturday was delivered even before the rest of Warners teammates had made it back to the safety of the locker room. Where they would discover Sunday morning training had been added to the weekly itinerary. Blake Smiths loan to NASLs Indy 11 announced Tuesday was a cue the club were on the search for a wide attacking midfielder. The splendid form to date of Justin Mapp has magnified how inadequate the teams options are on the wing, as did using Warner out wide. Trading for Nakajima-Farran immediately addresses this. Warner has faced undue criticism this season. When all he did was do what was asked of him. Used sparingly in a starting role by Schällibaum, his elevated playing role this term led to some even questioning the relationship between Warner and his head coach. Similar to April 4ths trade which saw Andrew Wenger depart for the Union, the consensus is that Impact Sporting Director, Nick De Santis has pulled off another favourable trade. The allocation money going Montreals way certainly sweetens the pot. Returning to league play Saturday evening after the bye week and on the back of Wednesdays fun and games in the return leg against Edmonton, provides the Impact with the chance to get only their second win of the season. Jim Thome Jersey. Worryingly Di Vaio, who spent Wednesday evening watching the game from the pitch stood just behind the Impact bench, has still not fully recovered from a hamstring strain which he first suffered back on April 19th in the away game against Sporting KC. He is doubtful for the game in DC. A game which will reunite the Impact with their old club captain Davy Arnaud, whose contact was not renewed by the Impact at the conclusion of last season. Revitalized since DC acquired him, Arnaud has played a significant part for a club that is only two wins away from surpassing their entire point total from the 2013 season. Not one who would ever describe himself as the most gifted technically, the Impact has certainly missed his tireless work rate. Arnauds dedication to the cause is a clear illustration of something else the team has sorely lacked as the Impact sit firmly rooted to bottom place in the conference. Another player who will not lack in motivation Saturday is Eddie Johnson, who was spurned by Jürgen Klinsmann when he announced a 30-man USMNT World Cup roster on Monday. Johnson more than anyone will not need reminding of his eight game scoreless run since been traded from Seattle to DC is hardly the form befitting of a player who scored many crucial goals during World Cup qualification. DC, who overhauled their squad in the off season following a woeful 2013, is the surprise package in the league this season and would signify a significant scalp for the Impact. To do so the Impact will certainly have to overcome the set piece jitters which have plagued them all season. Defensively they will have to be as they were in their solitary win so far and Justin Mapp will have to yet again carry the attacking threat. On Wednesday evening at Saputo Stadium just before kickoff rather aptly a "Through Thick and Thin" banner was unveiled in the stands. Patience has been tested, perseverance is now required.
