The Gonzaga Bulldogs take on the Portland Pilots on Thursday night in what will be senior guard Silas Melson’s last game in his hometown with a Zag uniform on.
Melson has totaled 80 points in eight career games against Portland, with 23 of those coming in the teams’ meeting earlier this year. In the nearly 50-point blowout, Melson hit seven threes. Hopefully, his swan song here resonates just as loudly.
Melson is also 10 steals away from 100 on his career. Hopefully, he hits that mark tonight as well. Obviously, he probably won’t.
Either way, Portland’s little two-game win streak will probably come to a crashing end. The Zags have won 32 of their past 33 road conference games. The last loss on the road came at the hands of Saint Mary’s back in the 2015-16 season.
