“It sounded like more fun when we (agreed to the game) than it does when you’re preparing to play them,” CU coach Greg McDermott told reporters this week.He said that just as he rolled up a sheet of paper, which listed the individual season statistics for each one of Gonzaga’s players. He shook his head when asked about it.

The stats show six Bulldogs averaging double figures. This team, which shoots 50.8 percent from the floor, has risen to No. 15 in the AP Top 25 after a 6-1 start.

Guard Josh Perkins has made 56.9 percent of his attempts from 3-point range — he’s knocked down 29 from deep (only seven players in the country have hit more). There’s versatile forwards Johnathan Williams and Killian Tillie, who can test you inside and out. And athletic talents Corey Kispert and Silas Melson, whom you don’t want to leave open. Rui Hachimura’s emerged as a reliable scorer off the bench.

“The problem is it doesn’t necessarily start with one guy,” McDermott said. “You can’t really try to stop one or two things and think that’s really going to upset what they’re trying to do or throw them out of rhythm.”

Both teams have injury concerns. Creighton starting center Toby Hegner has been sidelined the last three games with a sprained ankle. He’s not expected to play. Ronnie Harrell Jr. replaced Hegner in the lineup and had 15 rebounds in a 100-89 win over UCLA.

I didn't realize this. That's pretty cool. Not quite like the Jesuit Basketball Tournament that posters were proposing some time back, but still, kind of neat.
