Gonzaga Bulldogs: 5 Stats to Know from Win over SMU

Here are five stats to know following Gonzaga’s 72-56 win over SMU on Monday.

10

10—the number of three point field goals made by Gonzaga, five of which came from point guard Kevin Pangos. GU also made 10 threes in their opening win over Sacramento State.

31

31—total points contributed by newcomers. Transfers Kyle Wiltjer and Byron Wesley combined for 14 while freshman Josh Perkins and Domantas Sabonis combined for 17 points off the bench. The four players also combined for 21 rebounds and eight assists.

17

17—points scored by potential All-America guard Pangos. Gonzaga has a plethora of scoring options, meaning it could be Wiltjer one night and shooting guard Gary Bell Jr. the next night. Monday happened to be Pangos’ time to shine.

13.5

13.5—points per game by crafty freshman big man Sabonis. The big man has showed good footwork in the post and will only continue to improve. Coming off the bench, he’s nearly registered a double-double in both games this season.

16

16—the winning margin. The final score may have had GU winning by 16, but don’t let it fool you, the game was over by midway through the second half. Gonzaga probably should have won by 20 or more.
