SPOKANE, Wash. — Gonzaga men's basketball released its 15 game non-conference schedule for the upcoming season.
According to a press release, the Gonzaga Bulldogs non-conference slate features seven games at home in the McCarthey Athletic Center, plus a home exhibition on Nov. 2.
During the first two months of the season, the Gonzaga Bulldogs will face a potential of seven teams that advanced to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament last season, and another that played in the postseason. Seven of those opponents won 20 games in 2021-22, and 10 had winning records.
Gonzaga plays teams from 10 different conferences, including the Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC and potentially the ACC or Big East. The Bulldogs are also a participant in this year's Phil Knight Legacy and four more neutral site games.
