It may not have been the 52nd consecutive home win for Gonzaga’s two seniors, but it was an easy one nonetheless.
Derek Raivio scored 20 points as GU breezed past Portland to keep their West Coast Conference title hopes alive (you can read the game story here).
Though Sean Mallon was limited by an ankle injury suffered in Saturday’s loss against Memphis, he still was able to hobble up and down the court for a few minutes and take in the admiration of the sellout crowd.
Raivio was feted as well, and he had a lot more fun, playing nearly the entire game and scoring a typical 20 points.
We’ll be back soon with a post about the game.
