Gonzaga’s Zach Norvell Jr., who had big games coming off the bench and as a starter, earned WCC player of the week honors.

Norvell made 7 of 10 shots and scored 17 points in a blowout win over Incarnate Word. He also had five assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Norvell made his first career start, replacing Corey Kispert (ankle), in Friday’s 91-74 victory over Creighton. The redshirt freshman responded with a career-high 21 points, all in the second half. He made four 3-pointers, grabbed six rebounds and handed out three assists.

Norvell is averaging 10 points per game. He’s one of six Zags averaging double digits. GU’s Johnathan Williams was the WCC player of the week last week.
