It started during pre-game warm-ups. A small group of Santa Clara students chanted “DUI, DUI, DUI” at Josh Perkins, in reference to the Gonzaga sophomore guard’s arrest in October for physical control of a vehicle while under the influence.
During the game, the chants only grew louder.
“Just people talking about stuff they don’t really know about,” Perkins said after Gonzaga handled Santa Clara 88-57 on Thursday in Santa Clara, California. “In one ear, out the other. Lot of credit to my teammates for keeping my head in it. They’re going to have to do a lot more than that to get to me.”
