Michaelson Impresses as No. 1 Gonzaga Routs Dixie State 97-63
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Julian Strawther had 17 points and 10 rebounds as top-ranked Gonzaga beat Dixie State 97-63 in its season opener without coach Mark Few on the sideline. Few received a three-game suspension after he was cited for DUI in September. He previously sat out Gonzaga's two exhibition games, but will be back when the Bulldogs host No. 5 Texas on Saturday. Assistant coach Brian Michaelson served as acting head coach. Rasir Bolton added 15 points for Gonzaga, which was undefeated last season before losing to Baylor in the national title game. The Zags are in the midst of a school-record 52-game home winning streak. Their last home loss was Jan. 18, 2018, to Saint Mary’s.
