Difference makers: Drew Timme, Jalen Suggs lead Bulldogs to easy win

UPDATED: Sat., Jan. 23, 2021

Drew Timme

The sophomore forward worked over the Tigers, especially early in the opening half. He scored 11 of Gonzaga’s first 26 points. He finished with 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting in just 24 minutes. He added seven rebounds and added two assists, one a behind-the-back dish to Corey Kispert for a layup.

Jalen Suggs

The freshman point guard filled up the stat sheet with nine points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and countless floor burns before departing with 5:37 remaining. He was close to adding his name to GU’s record book after Joel Ayayi became the first Zag to record a triple-double earlier this month.

Turning point

This one got out of hand quickly. It was 2-2 after nearly 3 minutes, but the Zags bolted in front 26-5 roughly 5 minutes later as they converted off Pacific turnovers and Timme hit a 3-pointer and constantly finished inside. The margin was 31 by halftime.
