Zags get handle on opponents’ 3s

Good evening. I put together a notebook from today's media day with the focus on Gonzaga's 3-point defense, an injury update and the announcement of Blake Stepp being selected for induction into the WCC's Hall of Honor next month in Las Vegas.

GU's 3-point defense has been a highly scutinized topic by Zag followers over the years. This year's 3-point percentage defense ranks as the best in Mark Few's 13 seasons. (29.7 percent, with four conference games left.)  Below, I list GU's 3-point percentage defense under Few.

Click here to read my article that will run in Wednesday's S-R.
