Zags entertain Northwest Nazarene

Gonzaga welcomes NCAA Division II Northwest Nazarene to the MAC tonight for an exhibition game.

Here's my short advance that ran in today's S-R. A reminder to head to later for pre-game, in-game and post-game updates.

The questions on the minds of GU fans: Will Elias Harris play? Will Kelly Olynyk play?

Harris, slowed by a groin injury (also have heard hip flexor), practiced more as the week went on, but he'll probably be a game-time decision. GU obviously wants Harris healthy for the season opener less than two weeks away.

My guess is Olynyk probably won't play. The junior forward has been practicing, but he wasn't allowed to participate in Kraziness in the Kennel last Saturday due to an unresolved issue with Student Life. He's mentioned in GU's game release, but there was no response from GU administrators when I asked for an update on Olynyk's status.

It's just an exhibition game tonight, but it carries extra meaning for GU's Kyle Dranginis. The redshirt freshman guard's older sister Carly is a senior on Northwest Nazarene's volleyball team. She had 11 kills in NNU's five-set win over Seattle Pacific on Thursday. NNU is located in Dranginis' hometown of Nampa, Idaho,
