Killian Tillie wasn’t Gonzaga’s high scorer, but he provided plenty of points (15), a crucial 3-pointer late and a team-high six assists. The senior forward facilitated the offense on numerous occasions, using his 6-foot-11 frame to fire passes over the top of Washington’s zone to post players or open cutters.
Ryan Woolridge did what he’s done so often this season. The senior guard was a pest defensively in addition to scoring 16 points. He had three steals and disrupted a UW offense that committed 19 turnovers. Woolridge grabbed four rebounds, three on the defensive end.
Gonzaga closed the game with an 11-6 run to dig out the road win. Tillie’s 3-pointer from 29 feet with 2:50 remaining was huge, bumping Gonzaga’s lead to 75-70. Joel Ayayi added a 25-foot 3-pointer with 25 seconds left that gave GU an 82-76 edge and sealed the victory.
