Gonzaga is en route to the Bay Area where it will face Santa Clara, picked fifth in the WCC preseason poll, on Thursday and San Francisco on Saturday.
Santa Clara has suffered through a rocky season with key injuries, suspensions, etc. I checked in with Broncos coach Kerry Keating and he didn't sugarcoat what has become his toughest season in his five at SCU. He also sees the potential for a quick turnaround.
More from Keating on the Broncos' season here in an article that will run in Thursday's S-R.
