    Default GAME THREAD: Saint Mary's - Saturday - 02. 29. 2020 ( Senior Night )

    #3 Gonzaga (28-2, 14-1 WCC) hosts Saint Mary's (24-6, 11-4 WCC) in the regular season finale for both squads. Tip Time: 7:00pm PT

    Gonzaga has won 38 consecutive home games. The Zags crushed Saint Mary’s 90-60 in Moraga on Feb. 8, but the Gaels beat them in the 2019 WCC tournament championship game and twice in the past four meetings at Spokane.

    Vegas has the Zags as 13 point favorites on Senior Night. Killian Tillie, Admon Gilder, Jr., and Ryan Woolridge are this evening's honorees. Tillie is 18 points shy of the "1000 Point Club."

    Jim Meehan's SMC Preview: https://www.spokesman.com/stories/20...-rival-saint-/

    The Zags are on track to earn an all-expenses-paid, 2-mile road trip to the Spokane Arena for the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

    But first things first. Gonzaga (28-2, 14-1 West Coast Conference) wants to put a bow on a stellar regular season with a win over the Gaels (24-6, 11-4) in the final home game for seniors Killian Tillie, Admon Gilder and Ryan Woolridge.

    “I hope we can just win,” head coach Mark Few said. “That’s the best way we can celebrate Senior Night.”

    Wow! Listening to Huddy and Mo's pregame show, and they announce Rui Hachimura is in the house for senior night!

    Zags introduce four senior managers, senior players Ryan Woolridge, Admon Gilder and Killian Tillie. And then a surprise: Rui Hachimura, who left after junior season for NBA.

    Oh. I was hoping it was strategic.

    So far, “pound it inside at all costs” hasn’t been super effective.

    We couldn’t get a start for Rui?

    Since he's been out all season he will have to come off the bench

    Hoping to see this team get the inside out game going strong - and getting some wide open 3s to drop.

    Can’t win matching their threes with missed layups.

    I’m not sure this is the tempo the Gaels want to play. Zags are doing a good job of pushing the ball, and Corey is all over the court. He’s covering the Kennel better than Sherwin Williams ever could.

    Joel Ayayi is the new Marquise Carter.

    Yeah... Don't think SMC can keep up offensively for the whole game.

    This nba style defense. And that’s not a good thing.

    Not looking much like the game in Moraga, but SMC can't keep this up.

    As soon as we go back to “pound it inside at all costs,” the Gaels pull ahead.

    Petrusev is just not my favorite. He is a zag and I root for him, but so much harder to cheer for than some of our other bigs.

    It’s partly the approach. Teams know that as soon as he gets the ball, they should collapse. Now that they’ve figured that out, they’ve been able to neutralize him a bit.
