Zach Norvell Jr. insists there isn’t a switch attached to his jersey, one he seemingly flips to turn a miserable first half into a memorable second.

With 9 minutes, 36 seconds left Saturday afternoon in Gonzaga’s 103-92 victory at Creighton, Zach Norvell hit a step-back 3-pointer. He screamed. Nothing in particular. Just a scream of joy.

Ty-Shon Alexander is the most explosive scorer on Creighton’s potent offense.
Almost a year ago to the day, Zach Norvell Jr. was a promising redshirt freshman coming off Gonzaga’s bench and averaging just 11.6 minutes per game. Then Creighton happened. Half of it, anyway.
Creighton basketball player Martin Krampelj is coming back this season from a third torn anterior cruciate ligament. He tore the ACL in his left knee for the second time when he stepped on a teammate’s foot in a game last January. He also has torn the ACL in his right knee. Krampelj says he never had a doubt he would return from his latest injury. The Bluejays need his presence on the inside after losing four of its top six scorers from last season.

Marcus Foster scored 28 points, Davion Mintz gave Creighton the lead for good early in overtime, and the Bluejays defeated the highest-ranked opponent in program history with an 89-83 upset of No. 3 Villanova on Saturday.

Gonzaga’s Zach Norvell Jr., who had big games coming off the bench and as a starter, earned WCC player of the week honors.
