Gonzaga looks to continue streak hosting Pacific

One of three left in the marathon to 30 wins This afternoon the Gonzaga Bulldogs will play the 10-18, 2-wins-in-their-last-10, Pacific Tigers in what is built up to be just as nerve wracking as one of those cable action movies that you fall asleep during, which will no doubt be on about the same time as the game in the Mac.
