You can’t go wrong with any of the five matchups on the court, but we have to pick one so we’ll go with the big men: Gonzaga sophomore Drew Timme and Kansas junior David McCormack.
Gonzaga led all schools with four players on the Naismith Trophy preseason watch list.
Here are three Kraziness takeaways with a reminder not to go too crazy over a 16-minute scrimmage.
Drew Timme on Wednesday became the fourth Zag to make a preseason award watch list. Timme, a sophomore forward from Richardson, Texas, is one of 20 on the watch list for the Karl Malone Award, presented annually to the top power forward in Division I basketball.
It’s preseason awards season and Drew Timme became the second Gonzaga Bulldog in two days to receive All-American recognition.
Gonzaga’s selection as preseason favorites to win the WCC – one of the annual rites of fall – is back for the 19th time in the last 20 seasons.
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.
Filip Petrusev has played his last game in a Gonzaga uniform.
“Playing here you get put on a national schedule and you better come prepared to play because if not you’re going to get your butt kicked,” Timme said. “We love it (the schedule), I love it. We want to play the best because we believe that we are the best. And the only way to prove you’re the best is to beat the best.”
Gonzaga basketball sophomore forward Drew Timme will join the virtual Northwest Passages stage today to talk about his first season as a Bulldog, expectations for next year and more.
Yes, the West Coast Conference is improved this year. It might even be the best it’s ever been. But second-ranked Gonzaga is still the king.
Gonzaga’s Filip Petrusev was named WCC Player of the Year, becoming the first sophomore to win the award since 1981.
Drew Timme is not so quietly putting together one of the best seasons by a freshman big since Gonzaga took up NCAA Tournament residency in 1999.
Of course, that didn’t stop a commentator on ESPN’s college basketball wrap-up show Saturday night from trotting out the familiar refrain that it’s hard to gauge the Zags because they’re rarely challenged in the WCC – hours after they received a major challenge from San Francisco at War Memorial Gym.
The most impressive thing about the Zags’ 20-1 start is how they’ve navigated every injury roadblock and continued to play at a high level.
Gonzaga’s 2020 commitments Dominick Harris, Julian Strawther and Jalen Suggs have been nominated for the McDonald’s All-American game.
But perhaps the most important stat thus far is the rebounding numbers. The Zags are plus-17.8 per game, a gaudy number no matter the level of competition.
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.
“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.
About 20 children turned up at the Spokane Public Library’s South Hill branch to hear Gonzaga basketball players read books aloud.
