In their worst loss of the season, Gonzaga was trounced by UCONN 82-54. There’s no way to sugarcoat it, this was an embarrassing beat down for Gonzaga fans. Drew Timme led Gonzaga with 12 points and 10 rebounds, Julian Strawther chipped in 11. UCONN was led by Jordan Hawkins with 20 points, Adama Sanogo has 10 point, 10 rebounds and a career-high six assists.
Gonzaga started very tight hitting only one of their first nine shot attempts including air-balling two three-point shots (Bolton and Watson). UCONN decided to feed their big Sanogo, who scored six of their first ten points.
