Difference makers: Corey Kispert, Andrew Nembhard lift Gonzaga past WCC rival BYU

UPDATED: Thu., Jan. 7, 2021

Corey Kispert

Kispert again showed off his all-around game. The senior wing hit two 3-pointers, finished on the break and scored off several nice cuts into the lane. He scored a team-high 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting.

Andrew Nembhard

Nembhard was instant offense coming off the bench. The junior guard drilled three 3-pointers in the first half as Gonzaga built a 52-29 lead. He added another 3-pointer in the second half to finish with 12 points, three rebounds and two assists.

Turning point

Gonzaga’s blistering start was hard to ignore. The Zags were outstanding at both ends of the court and cruised to a 23-2 lead after 7-plus minutes. Kispert and Drew Timme did most of the offensive damage and Nemb hard drilled a 3-pointer in transition, giving GU a 21-point edge.
