This West Coast conference game will feature the Pacific Tigers and the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Gonzaga is looking to continue dominating their conference like they have been know to, while Pacific is still looking for their first conference win this season.
The last time these teams met Pacific actually held their own. The score ended 71-61 in favor of the Bulldogs, but with having been a relatively close game, do not count out the Tigers just yet.
The Tigers have taken a stumble recently as they have lost their first 2 conference games. The crazy thing is they actually played quite well against BYU, having only lost 87-90.
A huge key to Pacific staying in this game is whether or not they can get to the free throw line. As a team they shoot 77% from the line, which is 12th in the country. Since they will likely struggle from the field, free throws will be huge to get Gonzaga into foul trouble and also potentially help keep them in the game.
With the amount of points Gonzaga have been scoring, the Tigers are in real trouble going into Spokane. They allow an average of 73.8 points per game, which may sound like a decent defense but it actually ranks 238th in the country. One stat to watch out for is their ability to limit rebounds. They are allowing 28.6 rebounds per game, which is top 50 and will be a huge key for the Pacific defense.
Since their only two losses in mid-December, Gonzaga has played flawlessly and have won 5 in a row. All of these games were won in blowout fashion and they will look to do the same to the Tigers.
The Bulldogs are putting up a ridiculous amount of points this year and are scoring an average of 93.6 points per game. They are shooting a division one best 53.2% from the field and should have no trouble with the visiting Tigers.
The Gonzaga defense is also playing well considering the teams they are going up against. They are allowing just under 70 points per game, but more importantly are allowing opponents to shoot under 40% from the field and under 30% from the three point line. Given these numbers, the defense should have an easy time shutting down the Tigers.
