Zags over Pepperdine

Staring a new streak...

and this is pretty cool!

Time for a New Streak

Rough one in Pittsburgh today. The Kraken missing a few from the lineup - Dunn, Beniers and AB lose 0-3 against the Penguins.

Beniers was placed on IR later in the day as well.

In other news, Gonzaga wasn't in the Top 25 poll this week for the first time in 143 weeks.

Brutal Loss for Zags | Kraken Extend Win Streak | Huskies Beat ASU

Had the game on while wrapping up some work, but wow - they would have been blown out of the gym if it wasn't for Watson and the fact that Santa Clara had a ton of turnovers (that we didn't capitalize on). Pretty cool to see Steve Nash at the game, though...

Purdue Tops Gonzaga

Purdue is a good team with an outstanding 7' 4" center and a pair of Freshman guards that had an outstanding game. One they got the lead in the first half, the Zags could never get it back.

From the Associated Press:

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PORTLAND โ€” Zach Edey scored 15 of his 23 points in the final 15 minutes, Braden Smith and Fletcher Loyer each added 14, and the No. 24 Purdue menโ€™s basketball team beat No. 6 Gonzaga 84-66 on Friday night in the semifinals of the eightteam Phil Knight Legacy tournament. Purdueโ€™s 7-foot-4 center took over for stretches of the second half, but he had a good supporting cast. Purdue (5-0) shot 57% in the second half, made 6 of 11 three-point attempts and outrebounded the Zags 46-31. And Purdue had an answer for every run Gonzaga (4-2) tried to make. Purdue will play Duke in the championship game on Sunday, while the Zags will face Xavier in the third-place game. Drew Timme led Gonzaga with 22 points and nine rebounds in his highly anticipated matchup with Edey. Nolan Hickman added 15 but the rest of Gonzagaโ€™s players were mostly absent at the offensive end. โ€ข In a late Thursday game, Malachi Smith led six players in double figures with a season-high 23 points and Gonzaga used a big first half to beat Portland State 102-78 in the opening round of the tournament.

Gonzaga Beats Kentucky

The Bulldogs and Wildcats both wanted to get back on the wining track tonight - Gonzaga came out full of energy and Kentucky came back late in the second half but came up short. The Zags dominated the boards - so glad to see this six game series get started. Next year it is in Lexington and then in Seattle in 2024.

Zags Beat Michigan State

Such a great venue on the deck of an aircraft carrier for this game and a great salute to the men and women of the Armed Forces!

Michigan state is a very good team and it was awesome to see the Zags go on an 11-0 run in the second half to get the lead back and eventually earn the win.

Tough non-conference schedule coming up and this was great test.

Gonzaga Tops UCLA

Wow! Just wow! Its still really early in the season, but that was an impressive performance by the Zags over UCLA (83-63). Reminded me of what Baylor did to Gonzaga in last year's championship game.

So great to see Dickie V back on the sideline as well!

Chet Holmgren is one-of-a-kind

Really looking forward to the game against Duke on Friday.

Zags Over Texas

Gonzaga beat the highest ranked opponent they've ever faced in the Kennel. Timme looked every bit the part of the #1 Pre-season player of the year in scoring 37 points.
Texas is loaded with talent that hasn't played much and should be fine this year - looking forward to seeing where the Zags are at by the end of this month. They play Duke and UCLA later in the month.
