Gonzaga Bulldogs


RECORD: 9-3 overall, 0-0 West Coast Conference

COMING UP: Tonight vs. Oklahoma, Spokane Arena, 7 (ESPN2); Saturday vs. Illinois, United Center in Chicago, 10 a.m. (CBS)

OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs have precious little preparation time for Illinois after playing Oklahoma on Thursday night. The Illini, 9-4 after defeating Northwestern 89-83 in overtime on Wednesday, are a balanced club with all five starters averaging double figures. Junior guard Demetri McCamey leads the way at 14.1 points and 5.4 assists. Junior forward Mike Davis averages 12.3 points and 9.8 rebounds. He has six double-doubles this season and leads the Big Ten in rebounding. The Illini are averaging 84.9 points in nine wins, 65.3 points in four losses.
