Redmon’s career night ignites Gonzaga

Jazmine Redmon kept finding the big players inside Thursday as Gonzaga strolled to a 97-62 win over visiting Idaho. Both teams will take a holiday break until Dec. 29. Read story

Golden praised Redmon's effort, but she wasn't surprised by the junior guard.

“Jazzy's very capable of that every night,” Golden said. “It was awesome to see it in full force tonight.”

Graves and the players said the Bulldogs have been preaching have fun and relaxing during games.

“We had 31 assists tonight. That's terrific,” Graves said. “That's what you call good basketball and yeah, we've really tried to relax in practice.”

“We were fortunate enough to be able to really execute and do what we wanted,” Golden said. “We've been working on it for a while in practice.”

The Bulldogs had eight players score between eight and 12 points.

“These are great kinds of games,” Graves said. “Everybody got in and everybody contributed. … Offensively, we were about as good as we can possibly be.”

Gonzaga hadn't scored as many points since last year against Portland State (99).

All Bulldogs were pleased to take a respite after the game.

“I've always tried to give the team an extended break,” Graves said. “We'll have five full days off. … I think it's great for their mental health.”

The Vandals had a tough go, but the McCarthey crowd got a kick out of the shooting of Vandals junior Alyssa Charlston, who hit 3 of 4 shots from long range and had a couple of solid inside drives.

Idaho moves on to Western Athletic Conference play. The Vandals finished fourth in the WAC last season. They have been selected fifth by coaches and sixth by the media in the WAC preseason poll.
