Zags rout NAIA opponent; brace for Baylor

New, 8 comments

Six Gonzaga players scored in double figures tonight as the Bulldogs dominated Lewis-Clark State, an NAIA Division I team.  Elias Harris led all scorers with an efficient 19 points in 19 minutes played.  The German forward only missed on one shot attempt all night.  Rob Sacre, David Stockton, Kelly Olynyk, Mathis Monninghoff, and Sam Dower all hit double figures in the 103-61 victory.

The only noteworthy item from tonight's game is that Steven Gray's toe injury is not serious and he was merely held out because, well, the opponent was an NAIA team.

Next up is a date with 9th ranked Baylor.  The Bears have played kind of a bizarro-Gonzaga schedule.  They've had seven wins this season, only one coming against a team in the power conferences. 

At 5-5, Gonzaga won't do Baylor's RPI much good but this is a Gonzaga team that really doesn't have anymore excuses.  Elias Harris looks about as healthy as he has all season, but problems on the perimeter (at both ends of the court) have plagued this team all season long. 

Check back for more on the Baylor game tomorrow and leading up on Saturday.
