SPOKANE, Wash. -
The Zags take their perfect West Coast Conference record on the road to Moraga to take on Matthew Dellavedova and the Gaels.
Gonzaga won the last meeting by five points in Spokane, but with just a game-and-a-half separating the two in the WCC standings, Thursday's game is a crucial one for both teams.
"Every game is a must-win, we can't take any game off, we don't care who we're playing," said forward Sam Dower. "This is a must-win for us against a very good team. They're playing pretty good this year so we just have to come in prepared to play hard, stick to the gameplan and compete."
"If we lose we're going to be tied with them for the lead [in the WCC]," said guard Gary Bell, Jr. "We definitely want to get this win. This is a big game for us and we're going to do everything we can to get that win."
Thursday's game is a late one. It tips off at 8 p.m. (PT) on ESPN2.
