Gonzaga (3-0) is back at it for the first time in a week, taking on Western Michigan tomorrow at 1 at the Arena in the annual Ronald McDonald House Charities Classic. Here's my preview that will run in Saturday's S-R.
Gonzaga will entertain Notre Dame at the McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday, but the Irish will be without one of their top players. Senior Tim Abromaitis suffered a season-ending ACL tear at practice Friday.
"I don’t know if I’ve ever been more devastated by a cruel thing for a great kid," head coach Mike Brey told the South Bend Tribune. "I don’t know if I’ve ever had a more disappointing day."
Abromaitis had 21 points, eight rebounds and four assists in Notre Dame's 83-79 win over GU last year. He was averaging 14 points per game this season.
