Gonzaga rewind: Zags pass NCAA Tournament-like test against USF

Of course, that didn’t stop a commentator on ESPN’s college basketball wrap-up show Saturday night from trotting out the familiar refrain that it’s hard to gauge the Zags because they’re rarely challenged in the WCC – hours after they received a major challenge from San Francisco at War Memorial Gym.

Gonzaga rewind: Coach Mark Few wants Gonzaga to be No. 1 in more ways than one

It’s Killian Tillie’s fourth rodeo, and the third for Corey Kispert, Filip Petrusev and Joel Ayayi, though they’re in different roles this season. So roughly half of the eight-man rotation has experienced the thrill of being ranked No. 1 as well as the challenges it brings from amped-up opponents.

Corey Kispert has essentially been living at McCarthey Athletic Center and the Volkar Center practice gym.
