NCAAB Standings - Gonzaga
Correction: Gonzaga’s first test of the season, thought to be on the agenda last Friday against Texas A&M, could come against UT Arlington on Tuesday.
Gonzaga’s Filip Petrusev was named WCC player of the week after two of the best games of his young career.
Two more blowouts didn’t change Gonzaga’s position in the AP college basketball poll.
But perhaps the most important stat thus far is the rebounding numbers. The Zags are plus-17.8 per game, a gaudy number no matter the level of competition.
Gonzaga’s 79-49 dismantling of Texas A&M on Friday was a blowout over the final 30 minutes, but the Zags – and likely the coaching staff and fan base – still had several hold-your-breath moments.
Gonzaga shut out Texas A&M over an 8-minute, 43-second stretch, turning a small deficit into a comfortable lead and providing all the cushion the eighth-ranked Zags would need in an impressive 79-49 victory Friday night in front of an announced crowd of 10,344 at Reed Arena.
Offensive MVP, defensive MVP and key moment from Gonzaga’s win over Texas A&M at Reed Arena in College Station, Texas.
This was supposed to be Gonzaga’s first big test. And it was, but only for as long as it probably took viewers to find the SEC Network on their television or streaming device – if that took the first 9 minutes of the opening half.
Admon Gilder and Ryan Woolridge scored 16 points each and the Gonzaga Bulldogs rolled to big win over the Texas A&M Aggies on Friday.
Gilder is excited about facing Texas A&M, where he spent the previous four years of his career, but Gonzaga’s senior guard is off-the-charts amped to see his young daughter for the first time since August.
We’ll go with Chandler, who came off the bench during Admon Gilder’s junior season at Texas A&M and was a part-time starter last year with Gilder sidelined by a blood clot.
It was one of numerous defensive tactics North Dakota employed, often without success, in GU’s 97-66 blowout victory Tuesday. There will be plenty more where that came from.
