It wasn't quite the bounce-back effort Gonzaga coach Mark Few had hoped for after losing to then-No. 5 Duke on Nov. 26 in Las Vegas, but file the 64-55 win over Tarleton State on Monday in the "win is a win" category. Despite committing 16 turnovers and being tied with the lightly regarded Texans deep into the second half, the third-ranked Bulldogs used a 22-4 advantage in transition points to avoid what would have been a whopping upset. Gonzaga will aim to play a better game Saturday against a better opponent when it meets No. 16 Alabama in Seattle.
