Sabonis, Wiltjer Lead No. 10 Gonzaga Over N. Arizona 91-52
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Domantas Sabonis scored 26 points and Kyle Wiltjer added 23 to help No. 10 Gonzaga beat Northern Arizona 91-52 on Wednesday night.
It was the first game of the season for Gonzaga (1-0), after their season opener against Pittsburgh last Friday was called off at halftime due to extremely slippery court conditions at the Armed Forces Classic in humid Okinawa, Japan. Gonzaga trailed Pitt 37-35 when that game was cancelled.
Sabonis, a 6-foot-11 sophomore, made 12 of 13 shots in limited minutes and looked recovered from a recent back injury.
Gonzaga shot 53 percent and won the rebound battle 53-31 to notch an easy victory.
Kris Yanku scored 18 points for Northern Arizona (0-3), which shot just 30 percent in the game. The Lumberjacks made just 3 of 17 from 3-point range.
