Gonzaga senior guard Jordan Mathews doesn’t mind the Zags’ busy schedule one bit.
The Zags will finish out a five-game, 10-day stretch when they visit Pepperdine on Saturday. A rescheduled game against Portland on Monday made for a three-game week for Gonzaga.
“I like it,” Mathews said. “As long as we don’t have to practice I’m fine with it. We need to keep playing games Monday, Wednesday, Friday so we don’t have to practice.
“I enjoy games more than practice so this is nice.”
Mathews joked that he would be in favor or a 40-game regular season, but he hasn’t mentioned it yet to coach Few.
