“The Zags broke away from seven-point halftime lead when Williams-Goss erupted for 15 points in just over five minutes, bumping Gonzaga’s lead to 62-43.”

Karnowski says: "We're not going to beat every single team by 20 points in the first half," said Przemek Karnowski, who had 23 points and seven rebounds for Gonzaga (27-0, 15-0 West Coast). "We've got to play our defense like we're supposed to."

“With five underclassmen in its starting lineup, the Dons showed no signs of being intimidated playing the nation's top-ranked team before the usual raucous crowd in The Kennel. The Dons hit first seven of their first 12 shots from the floor to open a 16-11 lead over the Bulldogs midway through the first half.”

From the AP via Fox sports: “Gonzaga, which has trailed only 6 percent of the time in games this season, fell behind 16-11 midway through the first half. The Zags clawed back and tied the game at 22-22 on Zach Collins' basket. Williams-Goss followed with a 3-pointer to put Gonzaga ahead for good.”

John Blanchette story regarding NCAA president Mark Emmert visiting the kennel: http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2017/feb/16/john-blanchette-gonzagas-situation-allows-ncaa-pre/


In just the last week or so, the NCAA decided to take a knee in one fight. Along with 11 conferences, the NCAA reached a $208.7 million agreement to end the Alston anti-trust suit over the value of an athletic scholarship. Thousands of athletes, current and former, could bank $5,000 or more if a judge approves the settlement. At Gonzaga, that could cover men’s and women’s scholarship basketball players going back to 2009.

“Nobody’s enthusiastic about sending a lot of money to lawyers,” Emmert said. “But it will send a lot of money to former student-athletes, and it will preserve the basic scholarship model so it doesn’t violate any of those core values.”

Not every student-athlete is giving it a standing O.

“I saw it, but the NCAA will find a way to make it so that we don’t get anything,” said Jordan Mathews, the Zags’ graduate transfer from Cal.

And probably a bit battle weary after 27 games, all wins. No matter. They came out of halftime, turned up the pressure and blew the Dons out.

“You have to imagine what was said in that locker room,” Dickau wondered less than 5 minutes into the second half and Gonzaga leading by 16, “because Gonzaga has come out with a much clearer sense of purpose in the second half.”

The No. 1-ranked Zags did it all with freshman Killian Tillie watching from the bench, his right hand and wrist in a soft cast. Turns out he broke a bone late in practice yesterday and will be out a while.

Heister wondered before the game started how that would affect the rotation, and Dickau pegged the right answer.

“I’m not sure how much it is going to change,” he said.

Gary Parrish: "DEAR HATERS YOU ARE DEAD WRONG ABOUT GONZAGA, WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT"

USF’s zone defense troubled the Zags for most of the first half and they limited GU’s possessions by not shooting until late in the shot clock. Mark Few’s halftime adjustments were extremely effective, let NWG penetrate for his patented floaters in the lane and pound the ball to the big guy.

The Dons made only five of their first 20 shots in the second half.
“We guarded the ball better,” Few said. “We guarded the rim. We quit giving up 3s.”
