Filip Petrusev deserves the top spot here, leading the Zags in scoring with 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting. But the team put together one of its most balanced performances of the season as five players scored in double figures, including Admon Gilder, who added 22 points.
Ryan Woolridge – who Mark Few said earlier this week might be the best perimeter defender he’s had – locked down Jacob Davison in the first half to help Gonzaga grab a big lead early. Davison finished the first half with four points and four turnovers as EWU trailed 64-33 at intermission.
The Zags dominated the boards 49-34. But the moment that had the Kennel rocking was Drew Timme grabbing four offensive rebounds in one possession. Within a span of 15 seconds, Timme snared four of his seven total boards, igniting the crowd.
