We look at Nembhard’s impact on the rotation and the offense, sophomore Anton Watson’s role and more in the first Gonzaga rewind of the young season.
Here are three Kraziness takeaways with a reminder not to go too crazy over a 16-minute scrimmage.
Gonzaga forward Anton Watson, coming back from a January shoulder surgery, took a big step forward last week when he was cleared medically to return.

It’s Killian Tillie’s fourth rodeo, and the third for Corey Kispert, Filip Petrusev and Joel Ayayi, though they’re in different roles this season. So roughly half of the eight-man rotation has experienced the thrill of being ranked No. 1 as well as the challenges it brings from amped-up opponents.

Watson returned to the court for limited duty in the Zags’ 83-76 road win over Washington on Sunday with mom and dad in the stands, roughly a week and a half after he suffered a nasty sprained ankle against Southern Miss in the Bahamas.

The three-quarters-court press is nothing new for the Zags but they unveiled it with new personnel in a 116-61 rout over Lewis-Clark State College at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
The two freshmen forwards made 21 of 23 field-goal attempts and combined for 46 points, 18 rebounds and seven assists as the eighth-ranked Zags cruised to a 116-61 victory over the NAIA visitors from Lewiston.
The Zags did little damage with 3-pointers while piling up paint points in a 103-87 win over top-ranked Michigan State in a recent closed-door scrimmage.
“We’re really counting on those two grad transfers,” Few said of the likely starting backcourt duo. And the Zags are counting on contributions of varying degrees from at least three or four freshmen who helped comprise the 13th-ranked recruiting class in the country, according to 247sports.
