Gonzaga 71, Arizona 60
Elias Harris and Gonzaga started fast and never let Arizona
catch up … barely.
Harris scored 12 of Gonzaga’s first 19 points during a
suffocating opening run, and the Bulldogs needed all of their early
advantage to hold on in the final minutes for a 71-60 win over the
Wildcats on Saturday at Seattle’s KeyArena.
Making their annual trip across the mountains to play before its
large fan base in the Seattle area, Gonzaga (7-2) scored the first
14 points, held Arizona scoreless for more than five minutes, then
held off Arizona’s second-half rally.
Harris made six of his first seven shots and his 3-pointer in
the closing seconds gave him 17 for the first half, nearly
outscoring the Wildcats by himself as Gonzaga led 39-21. He
finished with 25 points.
Kyle Fogg led Arizona (7-3) with 14 points, but the Wildcats
lost for the fourth time in seven games.
