The Gonzaga Bulldogs travel to San Francisco on Thursday to play the WCC’s surprise team, USF.

Something has to give in this one.

The Dons connect at a 40.3 percent clip on 3-pointers and average 10.2 3-pointers per game, 11th nationally. GU limits foes to 28.5 percent beyond the arc, which ranks No. 10. The Zags haven’t allowed more than nine 3-pointers in a game.

Gonzaga’s challenge is tougher because USF has four players, led by Charles Minlend’s 30 and Ronnie Boyce’s 29, with at least 20 3-pointers and three others have made 10 or more.
