“These guys are good, you just straight up tell them what’s going on and they usually handle their business pretty good,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. “That was the biggest, longest, physical team we’ve played thus far this year, as far as their length around the rim and all that. I thought our bigs did a nice job attacking them, and putting some foul pressure on.”

Gonzaga, the No. 1 team for the 19th straight week, has defeated its first five opponents by an average margin of 33.6 points.
