The Gonzaga Bulldogs return home for the final time this season, taking on the Pepperdine Waves on Thursday.
After a couple of lumpy
losses (ugh wins) last week, perhaps a dose of the Spokane crowd is exactly what the doctor ordered. A game against Pepperdine, who the Zags have defeated 35-consecutive times, won’t hurt the health a bit either.
It’ll also be the perfect homecoming for Josh Perkins, who sits seven assists behind Matt Santangelo for the all-time school record. Perkins averages 6.8 assists per game, so he’ll break the mark either tonight or on Saturday.
A win tonight will also extend Gonzaga’s home win streak to 21 games, the fifth-longest mark in program history. A win would also bring the Zags one step closer to an undefeated run through conference play, with two remaining large hurdles: at home vs. BYU, and on the road against Saint Mary’s.
