Gonzaga survives North Dakota in 89-83 overtime win

The Zags looked like a team that was coming off a long layoff, but made just enough plays down the stretch to overcome North Dakota’s upset bid. It was a Saturday of upsets all around college basketball, and the Gonzaga Bulldogs almost joined the list of victims but survived a near upset by the North Dakota Fighting Hawks to eke out an 89-83 win in overtime at the McCarthey Athletic...

Gonzaga vs. North Dakota game preview: Time to shrug off that finals daze

After a week off, the Zags are back on the court. Finals week is an odd respite in college basketball land. The Gonzaga Bulldogs have been playing games with such reckless abandon, the week off since the win over the Washington Huskies seems years ago. But fret not friends! On Saturday, the North Dakota Fighting Hawks trudge into Spokane. The Zags are coming off a tidy 97-70 beatdown...

10 Observations from Gonzaga’s win at its other home court

8-2 The Washington Huskies got a new coaching staff and a new playing philosophy (namely actually trying to play defense), but the results were the same, as Gonzaga easily secured a 27-point win for the second year in a row. Here’s what I took away from Gonzaga’s win in Spokane West: Gonzaga attacked Washington’s zone with patient but decisive passing. The Zags, as a group, were...

“They were who we thought they’d be” Gonzaga coasts in the 2nd half to a 97-70 win over the University of Washington

Zags return to form If UW’s win over Kansas caused you any anxiety coming into this game, it shouldn’t have. Gonzaga led from the beginning, by 14 at the half and turned the 2nd half into early garbage time in a 97 – 70 win. Gonzaga started the game attacking the UW’s Syracuse inspired 2 – 3 zone by passing to the interior and JWIII returned to form leading GU in scoring with 23...

The glue guy will be back(ish). Gonzaga forward/guard/dude Corey Kispert will play limited minutes against the Washington Huskies tonight, Jon Rothstein reported. Kispert went down with an ankle injury against Incarnate Word on Nov. 29, and has been hobbled ever since.

Gonzaga's home winning streak ends with a loss to UNLV

Zags couldn't muster up enough offense without Jill Barta Will star forward Jill Barta in street clothes and a walking boot for her ankle, this game was always going to be tough to win. Freshman Jenn Wirth got the start in her place. Zykera Rice got the Bulldogs on the board with a put back on an offensive rebound.

10 Observations from Gonzaga’s loss to Villanova

7-2 It was a tough night at Madison Square Garden for Gonzaga who played a Villanova squad that was clearly a cut above. While the Zags undoubtedly played their worst game in quite some time, it would be a waste to simply chalk this game up as an “off night” and forget about it. Instead, the Zags should learn from the level of effort and attention to detail exemplified by Villanova...

Gonzaga can’t handle Villanova at the Garden in 88-72 loss

Turns out Villanova should probably be ranked higher than #4. The Gonzaga Bulldogs and Villanova Wildcats squared off for the first time at Madison Square Garden, one of basketball’s most revered venues, but it was a night the Zags would probably like to have back as the Wildcats put on a dominant performance in an 88-72 win. Mikal Bridges was the catalyst for Villanova on both...

Wichita State Is The Gonzaga Of The Midwest

If you’d have told people five years ago that the Wichita State men’s basketball team would be a national contender in 2017 with a chance to return to the Final Four, they’d have laughed you out of the room. The Shockers were stuck in the mid-major Missouri Valley Conference, which sent just one team to the tournament per year from 2008 to 2011, and had recently made only their second...

10 Observations from Gonzaga’s win over Creighton

7-1 I watched a handful of Creighton’s games over the last few weeks to get a sense for what we could expect, and it was plainly obvious that Greg McDermott had a good squad that had not been properly rated by AP voters. The short-handed Zags, then, should feel very good about how well they played against a team that will be ranked in March and should comfortably make the NCAA Tournament...
