Late post … is the end of the holiday weekend or the start of the holiday season?
For basketball, it’s the start since teams often have Thanksgiving and Christmas tournaments to go to.
Idaho and Gonzaga both finished 2-1 in tournaments. Idaho improved to 5-1 by going 2-1 in the Oregon tourney with a win over previous undefeated Cal-Bakersfield, thanks to a good performance off the bench from a freshman. Gonzaga, meanwhile, ended up 2-1 in Hawaii but beating Washington State in Hawaii. It was a good game from the start and makes their matchup at McCarthey Athletic Center on Dec. 11 seems like a long ways away. See you there.
