Gonzaga has just three more non-conference games before the start of WCC play in January. The first of those three games is Wednesday against the Camels of Campbell.
The Zags are coming off a 68-52 win over Kansas State in the Battle of Seattle.
The tenth-ranked Zags took their undefeated record with them against Illinois but could not complete a late rally. They lost. And now they must dust themselves off and get back to basketball.
It was a tough loss for a Gonzaga team looking to make a statement on the national stage.
Gonzaga dropped four spots in the AP Top 25 poll Monday after losing their first game of the season last week.
The Zags went from No. 10 to No. 14 in the poll released Monday. They lost 85-74 to then-No. 13 Illinois. The Fighting Illini consequently rose to No. 10 this week.
SPOKANE, Wash. – (Dec. 9, 2012 – www.GoZags.com) It was another impressive start to the second half that led Gonzaga to a lopsided 83-44 victory over Cal State Fullerton at the McCarthey Athletic Center Sunday afternoon.
PORTLAND, Ore. – (Dec. 7, 2012 - www.GoZags.com) It was an all-important run to open the second half that helped the Gonzaga University women's basketball team earn a 54-40 victory at Portland State University Friday evening at the Peter W. Stott Center.
