SAN JOSE, Calif. – Gonzaga appeared to have some issues with its footing during Thursday’s win over West Virginia.
Several Zags and Mountaineers slipped during the game at the SAP Center, a hockey arena that is home to the San Jose Sharks. The ice is in place beneath the hardwood court.
“I was sliding around,” junior guard Silas Melson said. “We were sliding around in practice. I don’t know if it’s the ice, but it was a little slippery. We thought it was the shoes at first, but it’s not dangerously slippery or anything.”
“I know a lot of guys were slipping and sliding at practice,” freshman forward Zach Collins. “I didn’t think it was slippery. I know it’s a hockey arena, but my footing was fine.”
