Grier, struggling USD awaits Gonzaga

Good evening from San Diego.

Hard to believe it's Bill Grier's sixth year as San Diego's head coach after 16 seasons on Gonzaga's bench. Grier's team is battling to stay above .500 overall (11-11) and in the WCC (4-3) heading into tomorrow night's contest with the 7th-ranked Zags (20-2, 7-0).

My unedited preview is below.

Bulldogs shut down San Diego, 64-47

After some technical difficulties, I’m back with the game story from GU’s 64-47 win over San Diego. Check back Sunday morning for a day-after post.

Read on.

Grier, Toreros take on GU

Bill Grier spent 16 years as a Gonzaga assistant coach and he helped recruit many of the current Gonzaga Bulldogs before moving on to San Diego two years ago. In his first trip back last year, USD fell behind 15-0 en route to losing 80-70 at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Grier is back for round two Saturday, but this time he’s not battling his emotions or fielding endless questions about his return to Spokane.

More below in my unedited GU-USD advance.
