Rui Hachimura draws a lot of attention with his soaring dunks and slashing drives into the lane. He found another way into the spotlight Saturday, spending a good chunk of the second half defending Santa Clara point guard KJ Feagin.
It’s one thing to dismiss a 16-point loss to Villanova, which just might be the best team in the country. It’s another to move on from a home loss to your conference rival after being outplayed in the closing minutes.
The key moment, offensive player of the game and defensive player of the game from Gonzaga’s 75-60 win over Santa Clara on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs, in general, needed a bounce-back game after their loss Thursday night to Saint Mary’s. And Josh Perkins, in particular, needed one personally after a 1-for-9 shooting performance in that one. Saturday night in Santa Clara both accomplished their goals as the Zags cruised to an eased-off 75-60 win behind Perkins’ 17-point night.
Josh Perkins scored 17 points to lead a balanced offensive attack as No. 13 Gonzaga bounced back to defeat Santa Clara 75-60 on Saturday at the Leavey Center.
Gonzaga wants to avoid being in these situations, but it has aced three bounce-back tests following losses this season.
Gonzaga shut down Santa Clara’s trio of guards in a 101-52 victory last month in Spokane. That’ll be the Zags’ first priority in Saturday’s rematch at the Leavey Center, beginning with junior KJ Feagin, an All-WCC preseason selection.
