Gonzaga practiced on Friday at Santa Monica High, the alma mater of senior guard Jordan Mathews. “That was nice, going back there and seeing everything,” Mathews said. “It was like a throwback.”

Mathews attended Santa Monica’s game Friday night. James Hecht, his prep coach, came to the Gonzaga-Pepperdine game.

Earlier this year, Mathews returned to War Memorial Gym as Gonzaga beat San Francisco 95-80. Mathews practically grew up in the gym. His father, Phil, coached at USF from 1995-2004.
