Gonzaga Basketball

Gonzaga freshman Jacob Larsen has suffered a knee injury that will keep him out of the upcoming season, the team announced in a release Friday.

Per the release, the 6-foot-11, 227-pound Denmark native sustained the injury during practice. The Zags suffer their first setback due to injury before taking the court publicly, but wield a prospective frontcourt bolstered by size and athleticism in returning center Przemek Karnowski, newly eligible transfer Jonathan Williams and highly-touted 7-foot freshman Zach Collins.

Larsen has been active in international play, leading Denmark to a FIBA U16 Division B European Championship in 2013, where he averaged 20 points, 12.1 rebounds and was named tournament MVP. 

He committed to Gonzaga after taking his official visit to GU during Kraziness in the Kennel, GU’s intrasquad scrimmage open to the public.

The first look at this year’s Gonzaga team will come Saturday at 4 p.m. at Kraziness in the Kennel.
