All Hands on Deck; Shorthanded Gonzaga Faces Pacific Saturday
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Second-ranked Gonzaga is battling injuries and will be shorthanded heading into Saturday's game against Pacific. Freshman Anton Watson is out for the rest of the season because he will undergo shoulder surgery. Leading scorer and rebounder Filip Petrusev had to leave the game against BYU early in the second half because of a high ankle sprain. It is unclear when he will return. That leaves a very thin bench for the Bulldogs. Petrusev averages 16.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.
