Zags, Wildcats collide at the MAC

I put together a couple items on the latest installment of the entertaining Gonzaga-Arizona basketball clashes. The Wildcats (6-1) make their visit to the McCarthey Athletic Center for a 12:15 matinee special Saturday.

The question on the minds of Zag fans is Przemek Karnowski's availability. The 7-foot-1 center missed the first game of his career, sitting out against WSU on Wednesday with back spasms. I'm told Karnowski is feeling better and that this isn't expected to be a long-term issue. His status will be determined Saturday prior to the game.

Here's my game preview. And here are short recaps of the first six games in the series, which Arizona leads 5-1.
