For the first time in three games, the Gonzaga Bulldogs have a tipoff at a rather normal time as they return home to face the Incarnate Word Cardinals tonight.
This is the first meeting between the two teams ever, which makes sense considering Incarnate Word made the jump up to Division I sports in 2013.
For the Zags, this will be the perfect opportunity to get some rest at home, study up on those classes, and see some quality minutes from some players we’d like to get going for the rest of the season.
This will be the second-straight game against a team from Texas, and fun fact: Gonzaga is 21-6 against teams from Texas.
For Incarnate Word, this is a chance to see beautiful Spokane and play in what will be the most raucous arena the team will play in all season. For their service, we thank them.
