    Fifth-straight season the programs have met


    RV/23 GONZAGA (2-0) at 3/3 STANFORD (3-0)
    NOV. 17 | 5 P.M. | MAPLES PAVILION
    LIVE VIDEO | LIVE STATS


    THE TIP-OFF
    - Gonzaga will look to extend its win streak against the Cardinal to two games, which would be the longest for the Zags of the series.
    - Stanford will be the first ranked opponent the Bulldogs face this season. Currently, Stanford is ranked third in both the Associated Press (AP) Top 25 poll and USA Today Coaches Poll.
    - Gonzaga is receiving votes in the AP poll, and the Bulldogs are ranked No. 23 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

    - The Bulldogs have started the season 3-0 eight times in program history, including three times during Lisa Fortier's first five seasons.
    - This will be the fifth time in program history the Zags have played on Nov. 17. GU carries an undefeated record of 4-0 on this date.
    - Through two home games during the 2019-20 season, Gonzaga ranks fifth in the country for attendance percent capacity. On average, the Bulldogs fill up 88.37 percent of the McCarthey Athletic Center every game. That equates to an average attendance of 5,288 fans.
    - Gonzaga returns two starters and seven letter-winners from last season's squad that claimed the Zags' third consecutive and 15th overall West Coast Conference regular season title.
    - In 2018-19, the Bulldogs advanced to their third-straight NCAA Tournament, advancing to the Second Round.

    For a little bit of a preview of tomorrows game here is a link to the Stanford Wbb site.

    If you scroll down they have a couple of videos that may be of a little interest. First is the highlights of the Cardinal game vs USF in the new Golden State Warrior arena. Second is a video that had Coach Tara mic'd up for the USF game.

    Watching the game. Watched a lot of Stanford basketball last year on their website, and see they still haven't gotten the word you don't need to show every g**d**** replay after every basket while the game is still in progress. You think with all the smart people at Stanford, they'd figure that out.

    This game is UGLY. Two good teams, both playing poorly. Hurts to watch. 22-20 Stanford midway thru Q2.

    Zags up 31-28 at half. I agree neither team is playing their best. They're really on Katie, not leaving her any room for a three point attempt. To continue my rant about the coverage, not only are the replays irritating while action is ongoing, but the guy doing the play by play doesn't have the courtesy to learn the pronunciation of the visiting player's names, he's really butchering Jesse's, but he apparently can't even read the jersey numbers on his own team. He has Lexie and Lacie switched. You should at least know your own players.

    Announcer can't decide which way to pronounce Belibi from Stanford's name either. But he seems to generally not know what's going on.

    Going to overtime. This has been such a strange game. Still ugly. I think both teams are way better than what they've shown today.

    The general administration of this game by the officials has been awful.

    A ton of fouls called against both teams. I think that played some role in both teams struggling to get in a groove. I thought Townsend was really good today. The whole team was gritty and scrappy.
