Hotel labor dispute could impact Gonzaga’s, fans’ Maui trip

UPDATED: Tue., Nov. 13, 2018, 8:24 p.m.

The Maui Invitational annually serves up stunning scenery, warm ocean breezes and the best holiday tournament college basketball has to offer.

First-year head coach Jones is familiar with tough arenas across the country and particularly in the SEC after a five-year head coaching stint at LSU. Gonzaga and the 6,000-seat McCarthey Athletic Center present a unique challenge, Jones said.

UPDATED: Mon., Nov. 5, 2018, 9:02 p.m.

The preseason rankings and hype surrounding Gonzaga basketball take a backseat to an actual basketball game Tuesday. The third-ranked Zags entertain Idaho State at the McCarthey Athletic Center, which hasn’t been a hospitable place for visitors in regular season openers.

Underappreciated Gonzaga point guard Josh Perkins primed for big senior year

Josh Perkins doesn’t always tell you how he’s feeling – though he’s routinely a post-game go-to for media – so much as show you. It’s one of the reasons he’ll begin his senior season the same way he’s entered every game since eighth grade: By writing “Prove Them Wrong” on his wrist tape.
