SPOKANE, Wash. -

Gonzaga is looking for some payback this weekend in the West Coast Conference. They open a three-game series with the Dons in San Francisco beginning on Friday.

Gonzaga and USF last played each other at the end of last season when both teams entered the final weekend in a dead heat for the conference title. The Dons won the series finale on the last day of the season, ending Gonzaga's season.

"Subconsciously we're out to try and get revenge, with the way they got us last year. We're pretty upset about it still," said pitcher Marco Gonzalez. " We're going in with a little chip on our shoulder and not necessarily thinking about our conference standings, but definitely just going out and getting three wins. That's all we can think about right now."

On the other hand, not every Zag is focused on what happened at the end of last season. As seen so many times before, dwelling on a negative rarely produces a good result.

"I think we have to kind of forget about it because this year when we've played with a little anger we haven't played too well," said outfielder Royce Bollinger. "We're just going to go in there, do our game and take care of business."

The series begins Friday at 3 p.m. in San Francisco.

 

at San Francisco - Friday at 3:00 p.m.
at San Francisco - Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
at San Francisco - Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
