    Default Pre-Game Media for Portland Game

    There were a couple of articles tonight in the Spokesman. One is about the Portland game in particular and the other is more of a general article about the WCC.

    Gonzaga-Portland key matchup: Isaiah White still a concern despite recent slump

    West Coast Conference improving, but everybody – including BYU and Saint Mary’s – is still chasing Gonzaga

    They don’t hand out trophies for nonconference play, but the West Coast Conference earned some gold stars with its performance in the season’s first two months.

    The WCC posted a 102-47 mark for a 68.5 winning percentage, edging last year’s 100 wins and 67.1 percentage. The conference went 10-7 against the Pac-12. Six teams won at least 11 games and no other conference could match the WCC’s four programs with 12 or more wins.

    But the same questions remain. Can anybody catch No. 1 Gonzaga? Can anybody break up the Big Three of GU, Saint Mary’s and BYU?

    Gonzaga’s first WCC game in 2010 was a road contest at Portland. It’s only fitting that they start 2020 in the same fashion. Over the last decade, the Bulldogs were 19-1 against the Pilots with the lone loss coming in 2014. The Zags have won 10 straight games in the series by double digits.

    The Pilots are sliding in the wrong direction, heading into this matchup with the best team in the country.# Gonzaga has the best scoring offense in the country, while having the 13th best 3-point percentage.# The Pilots offense has been struggling, having scored 69 or less in the last 5 games.# Gonzaga has won the last 10 matchups, by an average margin of 22 points.#
    The Pilots are in for a tough night tonight.

    Thanks

    Here’s a good WCC roundup .... Portland is the last one written about. It’s a pretty good preview of what we’re up against in Jan/Feb.
