No. 8 Gonzaga Hopes to Rebound Against Texas Southern

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Gonzaga Bulldogs weren't up to the
challenge of beating the Arizona Wildcats at Phoenix last Sunday.
The loss dropped the Zags from No. 4 to No. 8 in this week's The
Associated Press poll.

At 6 tonight at Spokane, the 7-1 Zags try to rebound from that
69-64 defeat when they face Texas Southern.

It'll be a tuneup game for the Zags to Saturday's Battle In
Seattle at KeyArena at 1 p.m. against No. 2 Connecticut.

After eight games this season, Josh Heytvelt leads Gonzaga in
scoring (15.0 points) and rebounds (6.1), while Austin Daye is
averaging 13.4 points and Matt Bouldin 11.5 points. In the Arizona
game, Daye scored 22 points, but Heytvelt stumbled with six points
on 1-for-6 shooting and Zags point guard Jeremy Pargo was held to
four points on 2-for-8 shooting.
