SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga forward Killian Tillie will test the NBA waters.
The school said Sunday that Tillie will submit his name for the NBA draft, but the junior could return to school...
LAS VEGAS – Mark Few didn’t wait long to pull Killian Tillie off Gonzaga’s bench and Tillie didn’t wait long to leave his print on Monday’s WCC Tournament semifinal against Pepperdine.
The embattled junior forward has missed 22 games this season – the last seven because of a partially torn plantar fascia – but returned to the floor for the first time in more than a month, checking in less than five minutes into Monday’s contest.
Rui Hachimura has become a familiar name on preseason watch lists, with Killian Tillie not far behind and Zach Norvell Jr. receiving several mentions.
For the third time this week, Hachimura was listed on a national player of the year watch list, the latest being the Wooden Award.
Gonzaga wasn’t at full strength in Saturday’s closed scrimmage against Michigan State.
Junior forward Killian Tillie sat out with an injury. The nature of Tillie’s injury wasn’t known. The Zags hope the 6-foot-10 native of France doesn’t miss any games.
Gonzaga basketball sets dates for Kraziness in the Kennel, FanFest and players’ appearances at Hoopfest
Gonzaga has set dates for the men’s basketball team’s Numerica Kraziness in the Kennel (Saturday, Oct. 6) and the women’s team’s Numerica FanFest (Oct. 13).
The events will be the public’s first opportunity to see the 2018-19 Gonzaga teams in action at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
GLENDALE, Ariz. – Killian Tillie hung around the back end of the key. He looked down at the floor, took a breath and looked up at the scoreboard. The Zags were leading by only two, and Tillie needed to make the first shot to stop South Carolina.
Moments before the Gonzaga basketball team put the finishing touch on its historic 77-73 win over South Carolina on Saturday, a sea of young faces and flailing arms jumped to the Zags’ trademark tune.
SALT LAKE CITY – Gonzaga had a short break after winning the WCC tournament before beginning preparations for the NCAA tournament.
That was just fine with freshman forward Killian Tillie.
He played in all three games in Las Vegas with his right (shooting) hand braced to protect a broken bone suffered late in the regular season.
There was a time in November and December when Gonzaga augmented its man-to-man defense with an occasional zone.
San Diego State managed just 48 points facing the Zags’ zone for long stretches.
Gonzaga has two regular-season games remaining, which will conclude a grueling nine-week stretch of 18 conference games.
During Saturday’s 82-61 win over Pacific, the Zags were without Killian Tillie (broken finger) and Bryan Alberts (ankle) for the second straight game.
Nothing seemed to come easy for Gonzaga on Thursday but it was even harder for Pepperdine.
The 7th-ranked Zags ran hot and cold, sometimes on the same play, but they shut down Pepperdine in the second half for a 92-62 victory in the WCC opener for both teams at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
