San Francisco vs Gonzaga Preview

This one could be worth the wait.

No. 1 Gonzaga and San Francisco will meet in a rescheduled matchup from a previous COVID-19 protocol postponement from Jan. 6.

Gonzaga reclaimed the top ranking in college basketball this week after a plethora of recent upsets. The Zags will try to keep the San Francisco Dons from pulling an upset. The Dons come into the game needing a big upset to help its NCAA Tournament chances. USF hasn’t made the Big Dance since 1998.

“I told Mark (Few, Gonzaga coach) I want to play the game, but we’re not going to put you on a Tuesday when I have to go play Saint Mary’s and Santa Clara on Thursday and Saturday,” USF head coach Todd Golden said according to Jim Meehan of The Spokesman-Review. “Fortunately, Portland was a great partner and willing to move that game.”

Golden noted that his team’s “margin for error shrunk a little bit” for making the tournament according to Meehan, and a win over the nation’s top team could go a long way. The Dons brought in solid transfers during the offseason and could challenge the Zags with “playmaking guards and interior presence”, Meehan wrote.

Dons guard Jamaree Bouyea leads the team in scoring with 17.9 points per game. He also averages 4.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists per night.

San Diego transfer Yauhen Massalski has emerged as one of the top players for the Dons. The forward averages 14.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per contest.

USF will have to find a way to slow down Gonzaga forward Drew Timme and 7-foot center Che Holmgren. That doesn’t include the Zags’ host of other talented players.

“I know coach Few and the program well enough, there’s certain things they’re striving to do, and if you can keep them off-balance or throw different looks at them … you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone, like we have in the past,” Golden said per Meehan. “It’s house money. You’re expected to go up there and lose, so why not go for it and see what happens?”

Timme averages a team-high 18.6 points, and he’s hit the 30-point mark twice recently and three times overall this season.

“It’s amazing how easy he scores it,” Few said per Field Level Media. “He had a lot of traffic in there. He’s unbelievable. He’s been an elite scorer in all of college basketball the last two years. And guys are doing a good job finding him.”

Similar for Holmgren, who averages 13.1 points and 8.5 rebounds as a freshman.
