The chances of that are rather high. Gonzaga has beaten Santa Clara in 15 consecutive matchups, and the Broncos haven’t won in Spokane since 2007.
Last year, the Zags beat the Broncos 90-55 at home. It was the team’s first home game as the No. 1 team in the country. Mark Few is 38-4 against Santa Clara all-time. This one seems like we can put it in the books as a great way to end 2017.
But, as we all know, The Kennel is a different beast in the winter. Pre-New Years hangovers run rampant in the subdued environment, and every WCC team loves nothing more than beating Gonzaga at home. If the Zags play like they did in the second half against Pacific, it won’t matter how much Santa Clara wants to win.
