The day after the win over the Cadets, the Eagles traveled to Wheeling, WV for the annual Cancer Research Classic.  On January 7, still without Eddie Scott, Coach Turner’s squad took on Georgia power Westlake, live on ESPN 3.  Behind strong team play and hustle, the Eagles earned a big national win (76-73).  Watch the complete ESPN replay here >>

After returning from West Virginia, the Eagles prepped for another big WCAC matchup, hosting McNamara on January 10.  A dominant performance on Coach Myers Court improved Gonzaga’s record to 12-2 overall and 5-0 in league play.  The next game is a 7:30pm tip on Monday, January 16 at Paul VI.

The Eagles are now ranked #19 in the nation and #3 in the East by USA Today.
