The Bulldogs start their run for a national championship as the #12 team in the nation when they welcome in the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks on Wednesday night.
Gonzaga officially started their season back on Friday, but the season opener was cancelled at half time against Pittsburgh due to wet floor conditions.
The Lumberjacks wish they could say the same. They’ve started a horrible 0-2 with both losses coming on the road.
Tip off is at 9:00 PM EST on ROOT Sports.
The Lumberjacks are started the season on the road for 2 games prior to this one and have started 0-2 with two very poor defensive performances.
NAU comes in off a loss to Boise State as they fell 101-81. Through their first two games of the season, the Lumberjacks are allowing 91.5 points against and scoring only 75.5 for.
Leading the way for the Lumberjacks is senior G Jaleni Neely, who is averaging 16.5 points through the first two losses and dropped in 20 points against the Broncos last time out.
The Lumberjacks are also getting contributions from both junior Kris Yanku and freshman Torry Johnson. Yanku has scored 12.5 points per game, with a lot of those points coming from the free throw line. Yanku is has made just 6 of 32 shots attempted thus far.
Johnson has put in 13.5 points through the first 2 contests.
The Bulldogs will have to fill in the roles of Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr. who both have moved on from the University after contributing so much to the basketball program.
With the duo gone, look for the Bulldogs to rely heavily on Kyle Wiltjer, who had 15 points in the first half of the game against Pittsburgh.
With players slipping all over the place in the first half of the Zaga-Pitt game that took place in Okinawa, Japan, the NCAA and officials decided it was best to cancel the game for the safety of the players.
Even though the game was called, the Bulldogs got a solid look at some of their talent that will be a major key for this season. Domantas Sabonis, who was battling back issues prior to the game, finished with 8 points and 5 rebounds in the first half.
The Bulldogs will look to their sloppy play in terms of turnovers as something that needs to get fixed going forward. Gonzaga had 9 turnovers in the first half of the game, something they led to Pittsburgh getting easy transition buckets.

Free CBB Prediction:
The Bulldogs have the a half under their belt, which gave them a chance to shake off the off-season rust. With that, they are going up against a terrible defensive team and should have no problem putting it to them here on Wednesday.
