No. 8 Gonzaga used its superior size and strength inside to work over North Dakota to the tune of 64 paint points, fueling a 97-66 victory Tuesday in front of 6,000 at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
Offensive MVP, defensive MVP and key moment from Gonzaga’s 97-66 victory against North Dakota at the McCarthey Athletic Center in Spokane.
Willie Caruso had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Trey Wertz scored 18 to help Santa Clara wrap up a perfect three-game homestand to start the season with a 70-62 victory over Washington State

Sometimes art imitates life. It happened Tuesday night during Gonzaga’s third easy win to start the season, this one 97-66 over the North Dakota Fighting Hawks.
Corey Kispert scored 20 points, Filip Petrusev had 19 points and 15 rebounds and the Gonzaga Bullodgs powered past the North Dakota Fighting Hawks.
Looking for an early trend in the Gonzaga women’s basketball season? The Zags like to share the ball – a lot.
It looks like just another game on Gonzaga’s nonconference schedule, but it figures to have the full attention of the coaching staff and a few of the Zags’ upperclassmen. North Dakota did everything but beat Gonzaga on a December night two years ago at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
The Zags can expect to see a steady diet of accomplished guards on opponents’ rosters. North Dakota senior Marlon Stewart is the next in line.
Gonzaga held on to the eighth spot – the Zags are just two points in front of No. 9 Virginia – while Kentucky moved into the top spot after defeating preseason No. 1 Michigan State at Madison Square Garden.
Long before tipoff Sunday afternoon, Jenn and LeeAnne Wirth wore big smiles, ear-to-ear and full of anticipation. For the first time since high school, they were in the starting lineup together. The smiles only grew from there during Gonzaga’s 92-48 season-opening win over Cal State Bakersfield. By game’s end the junior forwards had combined for 31 points and eight rebounds. The operative word is “combined.”
When will the senior forward join his Gonzaga teammates full time? Well, even he isn’t sure.
This grad transfer business – it’s a little like Christmas shopping, right?
Jacob Davison had 25 points, Kim Aiken Jr. had 11 points and a career-high 19 rebounds, and Eastern Washington topped Seattle 74-66
Joel Ayayi is feeling more at ease on the court and it’s reflected in his impressive stat lines through two games.
There are limited conclusions that can be drawn from a pair of blowout wins, both against overmatched opponents, but it’s safe to say Gonzaga point guard Ryan Woolridge and the collection of bigs are off to strong starts.
Offensive MVP, defensive MVP and key moment from Gonzaga’s 110-60 victory against Arkansas-Pine Bluff at the McCarthey Athletic Center in Spokane.
The Gonzaga coaching staff will be doing some cramming this weekend.
