Filip Petrusev has become the third Gonzaga Bulldog to declare for the NBA draft without hiring an agent.
If there’s a lack of consensus on assorted NBA mock drafts and big boards, there was little hesitation from The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie and ESPN’s Sean Farnham. “I think it’s Killian (Tillie),” Vecenie said.
Coach Mark Few and three Gonzaga players received All-District 9 honors. Sophomore forward Filip Petrusev was named to the first team and junior wing Corey Kispert and senior forward Killian Tillie made the second team.

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.
