GU ready for exhibition opener

Gonzaga will entertain Southern Oregon at 6 p.m. Friday in a men’s basketball exhibition game at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

 

The NAIA Raiders lost their exhibition opener to NCAA Division II Humboldt State 74-51 on Tuesday. Southern Oregon, 12-15 last season, was picked to finish 10th (last) in the Cascade Conference preseason coaches poll.

 

Sophomore forward Elias Harris (shoulder), Gonzaga’s top returning scorer, is not expected to play. Freshman wing Mathis Monninghoff (ankle) could see action.

 

“This is a hard time for these players, the first 2-3 weeks of practice, long practices, physical days,” head coach Mark Few said. “I’m sure they’re chomping at the bit to play somebody else.”
