GU rolls, Bouldin ‘fuzzy’ from collision

Gonzaga rolled to a 79-40 win over Augustana, a Division III school from Rock Island, Ill. The Bulldogs’ senior guard Matt Bouldin left the game late in the first half with what appears to be a concussion.

Read on for my unedited game story, with quotes from Bouldin.


Zags cruise past Vikings

Gonzaga got an easy win and a brief injury scare.

The Bulldogs routed NCAA Division III Augustana 79-40 Wednesday at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Senior guard Matt Bouldin collided with an Augustana player on the baseline with 6:54 left in the first half. Bouldin stayed on the floor for a minute or two, holding his head, before leaving on his own power. He sat out the second half as a precautionary measure. (We’ll update his condition with the game story post later.)

Steven Gray scored 12 points and Bol Kong and G.J. Vilarino each added 10 as 13 Bulldogs scored and all 14 played. GU built a 40-14 halftime lead and went on to the easy non-conference victory.

Back with the game story in about 90 minutes.

And more GU notes

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I put together a notebook/advance for Wednesday’s S-R. The first topic deals with how the GU-Augustana game came about, followed by a couple of other items, including a shorter version of the Elias Harris’ note from Monday’s post.

Read on for the unedited article.

Meanwhile, Matt Bouldin and Saint Mary’s Omar Samhan are co-WCC players of the week.
