Given the holiday, there may not be much beyond the S-R and Associated Press recaps. . .

Jim Meehan's game story: LINK (http://www.spokesman.com/zags/blogs/sportslink/2014/nov/26/zags-hold-georgia-88-76/)


Gonzaga’s Gary Bell Jr., Przemek Karnowski and Domantas Sabonis fouled out. Freshman guard Josh Perkins left late in the game after absorbing a hard shot to the face from Georgia guard Kenny Gaines’ knee. Coach Mark Few said Perkins went to the hospital for an X-ray and CT scan.

“I can’t remember being in that much foul trouble,” Few said. “We lost Domas, Przemek and Gary. Those are three of our top six guys right there. To be able to survive is a really good thing for our team, dealing with that kind of adversity. It gave guys like Angel (Nunez) a great opportunity and I thought Byron gave us a great second half after not playing well in the first half.”

Have a good Thanksgiving

"I can't remember being in that much foul trouble" Few said.

I immediately thought of Dayton last year in Hawaii. When you've got Barham playing the 5 at the end of the game, something has gone wrong.

Meehan's Day-After Post (http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/sportslink/2014/nov/27/day-after-georgia/)

Perkins had what coach Mark Few said was “a really, really long night.” He had his jaw wired and didn’t get back to the team hotel until roughly 6:30 a.m. Few guessed that Perkins could miss six weeks but won’t know for sure until Perkins sees a jaw specialist in Spokane.

Perkins’ absence leaves Gonzaga essentially with just four guards: Kevin Pangos, Gary Bell Jr., Kyle Dranginis and Byron Wesley. Eric McClellan is expected to become eligible Jan. 6, but that’s 10 games away.

Silas Melson’s redshirt status likely will change. “We’ll take a look at Silas now,” Few said. Few last month called the decision to redshirt Melson — arrived at by Melson and Few — one of the toughest of his career.

Pangos, an ironman in his first three years, figures to see heavy minutes. He’s the lone true point guard. Bell and Pangos can fill in on occasion, but the Zags also lose Pangos’ ability to slide over to the ‘2’ when Perkins entered the game.

I'm tired of focusing on the negative. On a positive note, I like the part at the very bottom of the day after story where Georgia's coach say that the Zags are probably better offensively than anybody they'll play all year. Um, don't they have Kentucky in their league?

Looks like Few and staff is now thinking about playing Melson. I'm all for that because I really wanted to see him play this year after reading, and hearing from my son and his friends about how good Silas is.

Also on the positive side: We just pulled off a double digit win over a quality opponent in a physical dogfight after losing four of our top eight players to fouls and injury. This team is going to be okay.
