Julian Strawther logged 40 points (14-21 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two steals and one assist across 37 minutes during Gonzaga's 82-67 win Saturday at Portland. Strawther's latest log is his first to have at least 40 points. Strawther recorded a 20.0-point average across Gonzaga games the team did not host during January. If he doesn't forgo senior eligibility before June and Drew Timme (currently averaging 21.4 points as a Zags senior) graduates, 2023 is expected to be his best year of collegiate basketball.
Saint Mary’s Gaels DFS Spin
Alex Ducas supplied 25 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and four rebounds over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 69-65 loss to New Mexico. Ducas' 25 points tied a career best in which he did once as a sophomore and once as a junior. Now as a senior, Ducas is ready to step up following the loss of Tommy Kuhse. After dropping the last two games by close margins, St. Mary's will need another special performance from Ducas is they have any hope of upsetting Houston on Saturday.
