Despite the fact the two schools are only about a 20 minute drive apart, Gonzaga hasn’t played Eastern since the beginning of the 2011-12 season. The two teams have played each other 60 times throughout history, and Gonzaga owns the all-time series 53-7, since both schools entered D-I play.
A win tonight would extend Gonzaga’s home winning streak to 30, currently the longest mark in the nation. It would also be the 32nd-straight home non-conference victory.
The Zags are coming off their toughest stretch of the schedule, having defeated the Washington Huskies, Arizona Wildcats, and North Carolina Tar Heels in the span of 10 days. After today’s game, the Zags will have over a week off until they finish out their non-conference schedule against the Detroit Titans.
