TV Take: Gonzaga avoids holiday hangover with convincing victory against Auburn

No one would blame top-ranked Gonzaga if it suffered a bit of a Thanksgiving hangover Friday morning against overmatched Auburn. No, not the food type, though that might have been in play considering the holiday. But the intoxicant in question was Thursday’s impressive win over No. 6 Kansas. And some troubling news that occurred before the game.

Quick turnaround for Gonzaga, which faces young Auburn squad Friday morning

Gonzaga doesn’t get much time to bask in a performance that had the college basketball world buzzing Thursday. The top-ranked Zags, who thumped No. 6 Kansas 102-90 on Thanksgiving, return to action Friday with a breakfast special against Auburn at 8 p.m. PT at the Fort Myers (Florida) Tip-Off.

And the Zags made it look almost easy at times, at least on the offensive end, against an opponent that prides itself on toughness and stingy defense. Gonzaga pulled away in the final 10 minutes for a wildly entertaining 102-90 victory over the sixth-ranked Jayhawks at Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Fort Myers, Florida.

Tale of the tape: Gonzaga vs. Kansas

But how do the Gonzaga Bulldogs stack up against the 15-time Final Four participants ahead of their Thanksgiving Day season-opening showdown?

Highlights: Gonzaga 102, Kansas 90

The No. 1-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs led nearly from start to finish in their season opener against the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks.
