GU roundup

Several GU items of interest. Bulldogs forward Kelly Olynyk scored in double figures twice this week for Canada at the FIBA Americas Championship in Argentina. Here's a link to Olynyk's stats throughout the tournament. He's fifth in scoring and third in rebounding for Canada, which is 2-5 in Group X standings and saw its Olympic hopes dashed by a loss to Panama.

Battle in Seattle pre-sale tickets for Spokane residents and members of the State Farm Battle in Seattle mailing list go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster outlets (three Fred Meyer locations in Spokane, Veradale). More here and at Gonzaga will face Arizona, which advanced to the Elite Eight last year and is 3-0 against the Bulldogs all time, at KeyArena.

UPDATE: CBS will televise the Battle in Seattle, which tips at 1 on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Santa Clara, which appeared to be positioned to challenge Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and BYU at the top of the WCC, lost senior forward Marc Trasolini to a torn ACL in an exhibition contest in his home province of B.C. More here and here.
