Gonzaga rolled past Southern Utah on Saturday. Monday's game against West Virginia won't be so easy.
The Zags and Mountaineers tip off Monday night at 9. (PT) on ESPN as part of the network's Tip-Off Marathon.
West Virginia returns three starters from last year's squad that lost to the Zags 77-54 in last season's NCAA Tournament: forward Deniz Kilicli and sophomore guard Jabarie Hinds.
The Mountaineers will remember the loss last March; and so will the Zags.
"Everybody thought there were going to beat us and we really went out there and took that as motivation," said guard Guy Landry Edi. "I'm pretty sure we'd take the loss as a motivation too. But we're home, we have the fans and the students to help us go through this game, and all we have to do is stay focused and go through the scouting report and we'll be fine."
