First half

Halftime – Gonzaga 53, FDU 17: Bulldogs with a top-notch first half against a tired Fairleigh Dickinson team.

Rui Hachimura dominant as expected with 14 points on 5 of 11 shooting. Team shooting 56.3 percent overall and 54.4 percent from deep, while holding Fairleigh Dickinson to 20 percent from the floor and 27.3 percent from 3 point range.

Zags outrebounding the Knights 24-1

5, including nine offensive boards.

Killian Tillie surges to 10 points on 4 of 5 shooting, including a pair of 3-pointers.

Brandon Clarke with eight points and four rebounds, while Zach Norvell Jr. has eight points.

Mike Holloway Jr. with five points for the knights, which are playing their second game in three days.

3:12 – Gonzaga 42, FDU 17: Rui Hachimura already has his six-shot total from the Saint Mary's loss . He's up to 14 points on 5 of 11 shooting.

Zags shooting 50 percent from deep, while FDU is connecting at just 30 percent clip from 3-point range – not exactly the formula needed to pull the 16-1 upset.

Rebounding advantage still big in Gonzaga's favor, 20-13. Nice response from the Bulldogs after the Gaels in Las Vegas last week

Mark Few sticking with his eight player rotation of Killian Tilie, Geno Crandall and Jeremy Jones off the bench so far. Safe to imagine some playing time for Filip Petrusev and the other reserves in the second half at this pace.

Great movement and pass from Tillie to Crandall leads to the grad transfer's first 3 pointer of the night. GU follows up on going right back inside Hachimua and then outside of Corey Kispert's first points of the game.

6:39 – Gonzaga 30, FDU 11: Bit of a "hold your breath" moment for Gonzaga fans as Brandon Clarke is fouled going up for a breakaway dunk. The big man gets right back up, but misses both of his free throws.

FDU switches it up to a zone and forces a turnover on a poor pass from Jeremy Jones, but some nice hustle gets the steal right back. Zags have forced seven Knights turnovers, while only committing three.

Clarke up to eight points, while Zach Norvell Jr. and Josh Perkins have five apiece – good balance so father of GU. Rui Hachimura leading all scorers with 10 points

Perfect description of the game so far comes right before the media timeout as Brandon Clarke grabs in offensive rebound, works the give-and-go with Rui Hachimura and finishes with the two-handed slam.

11:27 – Gonzaga 22, FDU 6: Gonzaga is just a physically better team and its showing on both sides of the court so far

GU outrebounding FDU 13-5. Also have grabbed six offensive boards.

First, the game for Killian Tillie is a wide-open look in the paint. GU shooting 42.9 percent from the floor, while holding FDU to 10 percent.

The Knights have yet to connect from deep, going 0 for 4 from 3-point range. FDU also into a little early foul trouble as Mike Holloway Jr. picks up his second staff. Holloway is responsible for guarding Rui Hachimura, who is up to eight points.

15:53 ​​- Gonzaga 11, FDU 4: After taking just six shots in the WCC title loss, Gonzaga goes to star Rui Hachimura early as he hoists three shots in the first minute. The big man can get the first two to fall, but he's fouled on the third. He's up to six points

Fairleigh Dickinson gets a couple of good looks at the bucket, but the rims in Salt Lake City have been a bit bouncy in the opening minutes.

First bucket of the game for Brandon Clarke comes on a 10-footer, followed by a Zach Norvell Jr. 3-pointer

Bulldogs doing a great job for the Knights into tough looks, including some long 3-pointers that come close.
