Gonzaga and Pacific collide for the third time. The Zags won the first two meetings by a combined 41 points, but Pacific did hold an eight-point lead early in the second half in Stockton.
The Tigers are coming off one of their best offensive performances of the season in an 89-84 win over Pepperdine on Friday. They are led by guards Ray Bowles and T.J. Wallace. Bowles averaged 12.5 points against the Zags but made just 10 of 29 shots. Wallace scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting in the first meeting but missed the second with an injury.
Forward Anthony Townes has picked up his scoring and rebounding in WCC play but he’s had little success against Gonzaga. He scored six points in two outings against the Zags’ taller frontcourt. Gonzaga blocked nine shots in the Feb. 18 game at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
