The Gonzaga Bulldogs host the Loyola Marymount Lions on Thursday in the McCarthey Athletic Center.
Point guard Brandon Brown triggers the Lions offense. The 5-foot-11 senior is a capable scorer (13.9 ppg) and content to set up teammates (5.3 apg, fourth in the WCC). He had 22 points and 11 assists in a narrow loss to Texas-Arlington, which handed Saint Mary’s its lone defeat.
Nigel Williams-Goss, Josh Perkins and Silas Melson could see time defending Brown, with the goal of limiting penetration and forcing him to take contested shots.
