Gonzaga Hosts Saint Mary’s Tonight

Gonzaga has a glossy record, lofty ranking and considerable buzz nationally, but Saint Mary’s has something that the Bulldogs want back. “We’re not the champions, they’re the champions,” said junior forward Kelly Olynyk, referring to the Gaels ending Gonzaga’s run of 11 consecutive WCC regular-season titles last year. “So we should be even hungrier.” The ninth-ranked Bulldogs (15-1, 2-0 WCC) entertain the Gaels (12-3, 1-0) tonight at 8 at the McCarthey Athletic Center. BYU (12-4, 2-0) is the only other unbeaten after the opening week of conference play. The next eight weeks will determine if the Zags return to the top of the WCC, the Gaels add another year to their modest streak or somebody else unseats the two WCC powers/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
