The FIBA Under-19 World Cup ended on Sunday and Gonzaga men's basketball had a great showing.
Current, future and potential Zags players from around the world were very impressive in the tournament.
JOEL AYAYI GOT BUCKETS
In four of the seven games Ayayi played, he scored over 25 points.
He finished third in scoring for the tournament and hit big shots late in games time and time again.
Ayayi made some deep threes, but was only a 30 percent three-point shooter in the tournament. However, he shot 61 percent from inside the arc.
Now it's about if he can put together a good season at Gonzaga.
FILIP PETRUSEV SHOWS OFF A VARIETY OF SKILLS
Sophomore forward Filip Petrusev had himself quite the tournament.
The big man scored a lot, rebounded a lot and even passed well.
He only had one game where he didn't score 15 points. Petrusev averaged 10 rebounds too, making him a double-double machine. His ability to pass out of the post was a nice sight to see and he averaged a couple of blocks per game too.
If he can put all this together come next season, it's easy to see why he's on NBA Draft boards for next summer.
OUMAR BALLO WAS A BULLY INSIDE
The 2019 commit averaged about 18 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks a game at the World Cup.
He did this all as a 16 year old, granted he's turning 17 on July 13.
But it was easy to see why people are calling this dude Baby Shaq.
Ballo could contribute right away at Gonzaga because of how he played against USA in the championship game. He scored 15 points, nabbed 7 rebounds and totaled 3 blocks. USA's team had some guys that are already playing NCAA basketball.
MARTYNAS ARLAUSKAS DIDN'T STAND OUT MUCH
The 2019 commit represented Lithuania in the tournament.
His offense struggled. From two-point range he only shot 30 percent.
He likely won't be getting much playing time as a freshman at Gonzaga.
JULIAN STRAWTHER HAD JAW-DROPPING PERFORMANCES
The 2020 commit had some explosive offensive performances.
He dropped 40 points and grabbed 10 rebounds against Russia on Sunday. The 40 points was a tournament high.
He also had a game where he scored 35 points in group play. That was tied for the second highest scoring performance at the tournament.
Strawther did most of his damage from inside the arc. He was completing tough finishes around the rim.
Strawther just turned 17 years old a couple of months ago.
Also, the headband was a solid fashion choice, bring it to Gonzaga.
JALEN SUGGS HAD SOME REALLY NICE PASSES
This guy hasn't committed to Gonzaga, but I think he will.
This 2020 recruit is good friends with Strawther and 2020 commit Dominick Harris.
The first couple games of the tournament, he wasn't much of a factor, but did a little better in the last five games.
He showed off a lot of fancy passes.
However, he only shot 30 percent from the field. Suggs did get to the free throw line a decent amount.
He also came up with a solid amount of steals. The guard had six in a game against Lithuania.
