Key moment

Zach Collins threw down two back-to-back dunks to jump start an eight point run for the Bulldogs in the first half. This run would break open the game and give Gonzaga a 23-14 advantage at the 11:45 mark. Collins’ second dunk, on which he was fouled and would make the free throw, was off a fast break following a steal by Nigel Williams-Goss.

Offensive Player of the Game

After missing his first 3-point attempt of the night, Josh Perkins made his next five 3-pointers, all before the first half came to a close. He finished the night with 15 points, shooting 5 for 7 on 3-pointers and 5 for 9 from the field.

Defensive Player of the Game

Nigel Williams-Goss had a clutch steal at midcourt which led to a dunk from Zach Collins during an eight-point run by the Zags. Williams-Goss had three steals and one rebound Thursday night.
