SPOKANE, Wash. -

Gonzaga is back to work after a quick holiday break and a 22-point win over Campbell last week.

All the players and coaches returned to Spokane after spending Christmas away from the practice floor. That includes freshman center Przemek Karnowski, who flew all the way to Poland to be with his family for Christmas!

"It was great, it was refreshing and I got to see a lot of friends and family and relax a little bit," said guard Kevin Pangos. "We're all re-energized now."

"I think everyone is excited to be back," added big man Kelly Olynyk. "We were only gone for four days and everyone was excited to see each other again, so the team is doing really good together like that. I think everyone is ready to go."

Yes, it's good to be back, but coach Mark Few hinted that perhaps there may be some "adjustments" needed before gametime.

"It's great to have them back, but it's more timing and conditioning and all that," he said. "So, we'll kind of figure out where we are with that."

Too many holiday treats, maybe?

Gonzaga's next game is Friday night against Baylor. The game, at 5 p.m. (PT) will be on ESPN2.
