Gonzaga puts on show at Kraziness in the Kennel
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Gonzaga men’s basketball team put on a show in front of a standing-room only crowd at the 2018 Numerica Kraziness in the Kennel at the McCarthey Athletic Center Saturday.
Fans were treated to special player and coaching staff introductions, a three-point shootout, and a dunk contest, before an intrasquad scrimmage.
After tying in the three-point contest finals, Zach Norvell Jr. edged out Josh Perkins in a sudden-death shoot-off for the title. Brandon Clarke then defended his dunk contest title, winning for the second straight year.
Clarke shined in the 15-minute scrimmage. The redshirt junior scored eight points, pulled down six rebounds, and blocked five shots. His blue squad closed the game on a 7-0 run and pulled away with a 30-22 win. Blue teammate, Zach Norvell Jr. , finished with a game-high 12 points. For the third straight season, Jeremy Jones made three steals in the game.
The Zags open the 2018-19 season with an exhibition against Central Washington on Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. The regular season will begin against Idaho State on Nov. 6.
