Gonzaga had two shots at the winning basket, but Matt Bouldin’s bank shot from 10 feet was too hard and Austin Daye couldn’t connect on the putback as the 16th-ranked Bulldogs lost 66-65 to Utah on Wednesday in Salt Lake City.
Gonzaga has lost three straight and four of five. The Bulldogs dropped to 8-4. Utah improved to 8-5.

A couple of weeks ago, Gonzaga was undefeated and ranked No. 4. Following a loss to No. 2 UConn on Dec. 20th in Seattle, the Zags actually went up one spot in the A.P. poll, from 8th to 7th.
But a home loss to Portland State last Tuesday — Gonzaga’s third loss in four games — sent the Bulldogs sliding down the rankings. GU is 16th in A.P. and 17th in ESPN/USA Today. More here.
The Bulldogs returned to practice Saturday in preparation for a New Year’s Eve road game against Utah. After Utah, the Bulldogs visit Tennessee on Jan. 7, a rematch of GU’s 83-74 victory in the Old Spice Classic championship Nov. 30. Tennessee is ranked 14th by A.P and tied for 18th by ESPN/USA Today.

Despite the record snowfall and GU canceling classes today, the Gonzaga-Texas Southern game is still on for 6 p.m. The Tigers arrived at 1:30 Wednesday morning, according to coach Tony Harvey, whom I met in the lobby of the MAC on Wednesday afternoon while many of his players gazed at the snow falling outside the windows.
