Gonzaga tops BYU 63-56

Walker was assessed a technical foul in the closing minutes that allowed the Cougars to tie the game. Instead of losing her cool, the senior guard out of Oregon City, Oregon helped Gonzaga win its 15th-straight and put some distance between they and BYU atop the West Coast Conference.

As we watch the highlights provided by Gonzaga Bulldogs, number 32 is Jill Townsend and number 13 is Cierra Walker…

The Gonzaga men’s basketball team is still trying to find an opponent for this week…

Gonzaga can't find a team to play this week

Its games against Loyola Marymount and Santa Clara were postponed due to COVID in both of those programs, so Mark Few has been on the phone trying to find someone else to play. They tried for 3rd-ranked Villanova, but they found Georgetown. They also tried former Washington State Coach Kelvin Sampson, who’s now with 5th-ranked Houston, but travel logistics became too difficult.

So, for now, Gonzaga is looking at a week-plus without playing any games.
