As tough as that is to hear for the Zags’ fan base, imagine being one of the players on a 31-2 team that was considered one of the favorites to win the national championship.
Admon Gilder, Ryan Woolridge and Killian Tillie got a head start on Senior Night with their families already in town for Thursday night’s blowout win over San Diego.
Gonzaga’s Killian Tillie acknowledges all of his injuries from the past four years have been a “pain in the butt,” but thankfully his funny bone has been immune.
Senior forward Killian Tillie is the most experienced Zag with 99 career games. Senior guard Admon Gilder has the most collegiate experience with 119 career contests – 98 at Texas A&M, his previous address. They’re playing like it. More importantly, they’re playing like a pair that have taken major strides physically, something that was missing mid-season.
Watson returned to the court for limited duty in the Zags’ 83-76 road win over Washington on Sunday with mom and dad in the stands, roughly a week and a half after he suffered a nasty sprained ankle against Southern Miss in the Bahamas.
Gonzaga and Admon Gilder have some history and some unfinished business in the Bahamas.
David Azore, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound sophomore, leads UT Arlington at 10.5 points per game. He only made 39% of his shots, but he’s 4 of 10 beyond the arc and 16 of 18 at the free-throw line.
Gilder is excited about facing Texas A&M, where he spent the previous four years of his career, but Gonzaga’s senior guard is off-the-charts amped to see his young daughter for the first time since August.
Zags guard Ryan Woolridge faced UAPB last year when he was playing for North Texas. Woolridge had six points, seven rebounds and five assists in a 77-66 win. Shaun Doss had 22 points and four rebounds for the Golden Lions.
The Zags did little damage with 3-pointers while piling up paint points in a 103-87 win over top-ranked Michigan State in a recent closed-door scrimmage.
“We’re really counting on those two grad transfers,” Few said of the likely starting backcourt duo. And the Zags are counting on contributions of varying degrees from at least three or four freshmen who helped comprise the 13th-ranked recruiting class in the country, according to 247sports.
Gonzaga topped Michigan State 103-87 in a preseason scrimmage Saturday in Denver. The Spartans are expected to be ranked No. 1 when the AP preseason poll is released next week. It was an encouraging result for the Zags, who figure to be in the top 10 despite losing their top four scorers from last season.
About 20 children turned up at the Spokane Public Library’s South Hill branch to hear Gonzaga basketball players read books aloud.
Ryan Woolridge can’t remember the exact year, but he played with Admon Gilder on the same AAU team in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
North Texas graduate transfer Ryan Woolridge visited Spokane over the weekend and committed Sunday to the Zags.
Gonzaga picked up a commitment Sunday from a top graduate transfer.
Gonzaga has a big recruiting weekend ahead, with campus visits from a pair of transfer guards. Texas A&M graduate transfer Admon Gilder and South Dakota State’s David Jenkins Jr. are expected to visit Spokane this weekend.
Admon Gilder, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound combo guard, is considered one of the top graduate transfers. He’s visiting Texas Tech this weekend, and the former Dallas prep standout has reportedly drawn interest from Texas, TCU, SMU and Iowa State.
Texas A&M visits the McCarthey Athletic Center on Thursday, and there’s a good chance third-ranked Gonzaga will see an Aggies’ squad closer to full strength.
