GU-LMU: 3 keys to Bulldogs’ 93-55 win over Lions

Jan. 12, 2017 Updated Fri., Jan. 13, 2017 at 12:48 a.m.

No. 5 Gonzaga defeated Loyola Marymount 93-55 on Thursday at McCarthey Athletic Center in Spokane. Here are the three keys to the Zags’ win:

Key moment

Loyola Marymount remained close throughout much of the first half, but a 3-pointer and a layup by Johnathan Williams had the Zags up by 11 at halftime. The momentum would continue into the second half, as GU only allowed three points in the first six minutes of the second half. By this time, they had built a 58-38 lead over the Lions.

Offensive player of the game

Center Przemek Karnowski scored 17 points to lead Gonzaga. He took advantage of LMU’s choice not to double team him, shooting 7-of-10 on field goals. The 7-footer also connected on 3-of-5 free throws. Six other Bulldogs finished in double digits.

Defensive player of the game

Freshmen Zach Collins was once again a presence for the Zags on the boards. He led the Bulldogs with nine rebounds, and also picked up two steals.
