Zags hold off Georgia

Gonzaga built an 18-point lead in the second half, but it wasn’t able to cruise to victory.

GU endured an uncomfortable final three minutes because of sloppy ballhandling and passing before hanging on for a 75-67 victory over Georgia on Saturday in the Ronald McDonald Charities Classic in front of a sold-out crowd at the Spokane Arena.

The game had a scary finish for Gonzaga. Georgia’s Corey Butler was booted out of the game for a hard foul on GU’s Jeremy Pargo on a breakaway. Pargo stayed down on the court for a couple of minutes, but was eventually able to shoot the free throws.
