Eric McClellan cleared for Gonzaga and practiced yesterday. There is a chance he makes debut tonight against Saint Mary's, source told ESPN.

However, my best guess is that we won't see him play until Saturday....but it depends on how the game goes tonight.

Glad he is cleared. Now the journey continues. Get him some play time Saturday, and then work him in some next week. Really pumped now. Just gotta get Perkins in somehow.

The kids been ballin' his whole life...he needs zero time to get in the game if he's healthy. Can't wait to see the mix of Steven Gray, Pargo, and Meech all in one!!!

Such good news. But it might actually be unfair to him to throw him into it tonight. Dunno, I'm no coach, but Sat seems more approp.

Totally agree. The scary thing is the lack of quality games to get him back to full standard. So he may or may not play. Which leaves him to play against Pacific, which is fine. Now the rest of the meat of the schedule:

1-31 Memphis
2-14 Pepperdine
2-21 @Saint Mary's
2-28 BYU
WCC Tournament

So there is only one more road game that he can possibly participate in against a solid "good team" persay and maybe 6 overall. Which is kind of scary. But maybe it will help with his confidence going into the tournament. Maybe its better for this to happen. I am no expert.

Gosh, the way I see it is St. Mary's has two very good point guards...this would be the perfect game for McC to come back if physically able. We operate at such a better rate with a rested Pangos and Pangos sliding to the 2 at times. IMO of course.

Hoping (1) that McClellan is totally and completely healthy; (2) that he doesn't try to impress on his first go-round, but plays under control to get into a comfort zone; (3) that from tonight onward he incrementally earns more and more playing time; then (4) come tourney-time he'll be solid and in synch w/his battery mates.

Very happy to see Eric not only get on the floor but break the scoring seal as well. I know that it was from the free throw line, but he's in the scoring column.

Happy to notice he is fast, even if the wheel is still bad. Good handles, too.

I would suspect he'll get a lot more minutes Saturday night.

Yeah, looks like he won't have any trouble turning the corner against the D with the ball up near the top of the key.

What the coaching staff is really excited about his defense.

Good to see him get his first points--liked his speed.
