GU opens WCC campaign at home

Gonzaga begins the WCC season at home against Santa Clara tonight, and the Zags will follow that up with visits from USF on Monday, Saint Mary's on Thursday and Pacific next Saturday.

Yes, it's an odd way to open the conference season. Just about every WCC team has an extended home stretch and an extended road stretch, despite the league now having 10 members (with the addition of Pacific), an easier number for scheduling purposes. We addressed this topic months ago, but here's a bit of a refresher in my GU-SCU preview that ran in today's S-R.
