The game plan defensively for Gonzaga is working well, though Kuso is in foul trouble, Mallon is coming off a concussion, according to the TV guys, and Pendergraft is one missed call away from being on the bench as well.
Maybe we will see David Burgess today.
The Nevada defense – especially the 3-point defense – has been OK. But the Zags are starting to attack better, thus picking up fouls and getting cleaner looks. Nevada even played a possession of zone, and Heytvelt, who now has a team-leading eight points (with Mallon), converted a three-point play.
By the way, USC leads WSU 25-21 at the half.
