Another Gonzaga basketball season began Tuesday night at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Much of the 2019-20 season opener against visiting Alabama State was familiar, from the sellout crowd to head coach Mark Few’s presence on the sideline to the winning team.
Gonzaga’s track record in season and/or home openers is just about spotless and the Zags are heavy favorites to continue that trend Tuesday. The Zags are favored by 35 points against visiting Alabama State, but odds and past seasons are of little concern to Gonzaga coach Mark Few.
Jacoby Ross is the shortest player on Alabama State’s roster and he’s not listed as a probable starter against Gonzaga, but the 5-foot-9, 180-pound junior should see plenty of court time.
A day after a bench-clearing fight ended the Southwestern Athletic Conference women’s basketball regular-season title game in a double forfeit, the conference was reviewing the incident.

Palmer added team bests of seven steals and eight rebounds for the Bulldogs (23-3, 13-1), who jumped ahead 5-0 and built a first-half lead as big as 14 points in rolling to their 14th consecutive win over USD. San Diego, which had been 13-0 at home, never came closer than nine points in the second half.
