MALIBU, Calif. — The Gonzaga men’s basketball team has looked unstoppable most of this season, but Thursday the No. 3 ranked Bulldogs ran into an opponent it never had a chance against — Los Angeles traffic.

The West Coast Conference game between Gonzaga against and at Pepperdine was delayed 30 minutes because Gonzaga’s team bus was caught in a backup on the Pacific Coast Highway. Long-running construction combined with an accident that caused a utility pole to fall on the road, forced three lanes.

The Bulldogs didn’t arrive at Pepperdine’s Firestone Fieldstone until about 30 minutes before the original tip-off time. The game eventually tipped off at 11:03 p.m. ET.
