Gonzaga vs Oregon Preview
The Bulldogs pounded the Southern Miss Golden Eagles 94-69 to reach the Battle 4 Atlantis semifinals, improving to 6-0 on the season.
Gonzaga forward Corey Kispert erupted for 28 points to break out of a shooting slump — the junior went 9-of-11 from the field and 7-of-8 from distance.
He connected on just 3 of 24 attempts across the Zags’ three previous contests.
“It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t a lot of fun, man,” Kispert said of the three-game slump, according to The Associated Press. “It doesn’t feel good to see the ball not go in. … You’ve just got to trust the work you’ve put in, trust the hours you’ve done, not change a single thing and the ball’s going to eventually start falling for you.”
The Zags played without big man Killian Tillie, who was a late scratch. The senior, a preseason all-West Coast Conference selection, underwent knee surgery in October and missed Gonzaga’s first four games.
He made his season debut on Nov. 19, dropping 15 points and pulling down 8 rebounds in 27 minutes of the team’s 72-66 victory over the UT Arlington Mavericks. Four days later, the 6-foot-10-inch Frenchman stuffed the stat sheet in limited action during a blowout win over the CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners, recording 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block.
Tillie traveled to the Bahamas expecting to play, but his repaired knee swelled during the trip, according to Gonzaga head coach Mark Few.
“The knee swelled up again on the plane as it was a long plane ride and so we are just being very, very cautious to see if we can get the swelling out of there,” Few said, according to The Spokesman-Review. “It really is a game-time decision (Thursday).”
The Ducks reached the semis on the strength of a 19-point comeback. They outscored the No. 13 Seton Hall Pirates 41-20 over the last 16 and a half minutes of their Wednesday-night clash for a 71-69 victory, improving to 6-0.
Oregon guard Payton Pritchard scored 12 of his team-high 16 points during the crucial stretch. The senior shot 5-of-10 from the field and 3-of-7 from distance and led all participants with 6 assists.
With 14.4 seconds left, redshirt senior forward Shakur Juiston gave the Ducks their first advantage since they led 7-6 in the first half. He caught Pritchard’s airballed 3-pointer and flipped the ball home for the game’s last bucket.
“I guess I was at the right place at the right time,” Juiston said, per The Associated Press. “I had seen Payton shoot it. I never doubted his shot, but I wanted to go box out and it just happened to fall short. My hand was just pretty much right there.”
