Zags Handle Gaels In Second Half

Gonzaga spent most of the first half building up a nice lead only to see Saint Mary’s make a late push to take a one-point halftime lead. Gonzaga spent most of the second half reconstructing another nice lead only to see the Gaels fight back again. This time Gonzaga dug in with key defensive stops and daggers at the offensive end by Gary Bell Jr., Drew Barham, Sam Dower and Mike Hart, leading the fifth-ranked Bulldogs to a convincing 77-60 men’s basketball victory Thursday viewed by a crowd well in excess of the 3,500-seat capacity at McKeon Pavilion/Jim Meehan, SR.

Question: Now do you believe Gonzaga belongs in the Top 5 in the nation?
