McCarthey Athletic Center, Spokane, Washington
SPOKANE, Wash. -- Gonzaga forward Elias Harris is not sure why he was ejected late in the first half against Wake Forest.What is sure is that Gonzaga (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) could not recover from the game-changing loss of its second-leading scorer and top rebounder, and fell 77-75 to Wake Forest on Saturday."My feeling is I did nothing wrong," said Harris, who came in averaging 14 points and 8 rebounds a game.
• Gonzaga's 24-game win streak against unranked opponents was snapped as Wake overcame a 15-0 first-half run by the Bulldogs to win for the sixth time in its last eight games against ranked opponents.
• This is just the fourth loss for Gonzaga at home since opening the McCarthey Athletic Center.
• C.J. Harris led Wake Forest with a career-high 19 points, including 13 FTs.
• Ari Stewart added a career-high 17 for the Demon Deacons.
