Both teams mascots are Bulldogs, but thats where the similarities end for No. Thomas Vanek Jersey . 14 Gonzaga and Bryant, who meet Friday night at McCarthey Athletic Center in Spokane, Wash.While Gonzaga (2-0) showed it could be the best team on the west coast Monday night in a 69-48 spanking of San Diego State, Bryant (1-1) is merely trying to figure out what it can be as it starts a three-game swing into eastern Washington.Coming off an 88-61 beat-down of Division III foe Salve Regina Tuesday night, Bryant is meeting Gonzaga for only the second time ever. The first time was three years ago, when Gonzaga opened its season with a 100-76 thumping.Bryant coach Tim OShea said the win Tuesday night could boost his teams confidence.Any time you can get a win in the home opener, its a great thing, OShea said. Hopefully, this will put us on the right track with some really tough games coming up.No game Bryant plays for the remainder of the season will be tougher than this one. Gonzaga can beat you from almost any spot on the floor, and it appears more athletic than many of its last 17 teams, all of which reached the NCAA tournament.It has already exhibited the ability to play different styles in its first two games. After zipping through a 92-69 win in its season opener against Utah Valley, Gonzaga played and excelled at a slower tempo against San Diego State, overcoming 39.4 percent field goal shooting by committing just seven turnovers and playing terrific defense.Gonzaga can attack you in the post with 7-foot senior center Przemek Karnowski and 6-9 forward Johnathan Williams, a Missouri transfer capable of a 20-10 double-double any night. It can torment you from long range with California transfer Jordan Mathews, a graduate transfer who strafed San Diego State with five 3-pointers and 17 points Monday night.And for good measure, it can beat you with Washington transfer Nigel Williams-Goss, who is on the 50-man preseason watch list for the Wooden Award. Even on an off-night like Monday, where he made only 3-of-12 shots, Williams-Goss still wound up with 10 points, eight rebounds and three steals.We adapt and change every year, Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. I think we do as good a job as anybody figuring out what we got, and then we play to that.Add 7-foot freshman Zach Collins (15 points, eight rebounds in 21 minutes Monday night) and 6-10 French frosh Killian Tillie (8.5 ppg, 9.5 rebounds in two games) to this mix, and you see a team with the depth and height to challenge anyone in the lane.Its little wonder, then, that Gonzagas true measuring sticks wont be taken in December when it plays Arizona or during West Coast Conference play when it matches up twice with St. Marys and BYU. It will likely take until March to see if this team can live up to its high aspirations.We were better tonight than we were against Utah Valley, Few said after the San Diego State game. If we can keep moving it incrementally forward, thats a great sign. Rick Martin Jersey .
