Gonzaga fans who missed out on Kraziness in the Kennel in 2020, or those wishing to get an early glimpse of freshman Chet Holmgren and the 2021-22 Bulldogs, will be able to get their fix on Oct. 9 when GU’s men’s and women’s basketball teams host their annual preseason exhibition at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
