For the second straight year, ESPN put the Gonzaga Bulldogs in their college tip-off marathon, and for the second straight year the Bulldogs blew out their opponent.
Gary Bell led the Bulldogs with 24 points as a barrage of threes absolutely buried the Rams, 93-61, on Monday night.
With the way the Zags were shooting last night, Colorado State never had a chance. Gonzaga was 14-of-31 from beyond the arc and 20-of-28 from two point range. Przemek Karnowski started out a bit slow but finished with eight points and 10 rebounds. He had a few turnovers, but those we can deal with. Because his narrative of foul issues from the first game took a step back, after picking up three fouls and logging 26 minutes on the game.
Sam Dower was a bit more quiet this game, but that is because the guards took it over and there wasn't much need for him. Still, he was the same old crazily offensive effective Sam Dower. Dower finished a perfect 4-of-4 from the field for eight points and nine rebounds. He also had zero turnovers and zero fouls.
