Gonzaga vs. Tennessee: Bulldogs face Vols in exhibition game

Much has been made of the Gonzaga men’s basketball team’s regular-season schedule, which has the second-ranked Bulldogs playing at least four top-25 teams in the AP preseason poll.

However, this year’s squad doesn’t have to wait until the end of the preseason to face a nationally-ranked opponent as Gonzaga meets No. 11 Tennessee for an exhibition game on Friday in Frisco, Texas. It will be a charity game to raise money for the McLendon Foundation.

It’s not common for Gonzaga head coach Mark Few to schedule a public scrimmage against a team of the Volunteers’ caliber, but the exception is no surprise since he and Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes are close friends.
