Gonzaga-Loyola Marymount: 3 keys to the Bulldogs’ 73-55 victory over the Lions

UPDATED: Thu., Jan. 17, 2019

By Justin Reed The Spokesman-Review

Key moment

The most explosive moment of the game came early in the second half. It was a fast break alley-oop from Zach Norvell Jr. to Brandon Clarke. Norvell grabbed the missed shot and took off down the court before a quick flip over two defenders made an easy finish for Clarke.

Offensive MVP

Let’s stick with Norvell here. He led the team with 17 points and dished out four assists. He extended his team lead on made 3-pointers this season after making three more, sitting at 54. Corey Kispert is next with 34 made 3s.

Defensive MVP

How about the guy who is on pace to break Gonzaga’s single-season block record? Clarke continued his rim protection, blocking three shots to get to 64 for the year. He will pass Austin Daye (70 blocks in 2008-09) to become No. 1 by the end of the season.
