The preseason favorites in two western conferences bump heads on Monday (midnight ET) when San Diego State plays 14th-ranked Gonzaga on the Bulldogs homecourt in Spokane, Wash.Three things make that game look like a major challenge for San Diego State, the preseason favorite in the Mountain West Conference.First of all, the Aztecs were not particularly impressive in their 69-59 season-opening win at home against the University of San Diego, which was picked to finish last in the West Coast Conference.More significant is the fact that San Diego State may be missing some of the same players who were held out against San Diego. Four regulars sat out that game with injuries, the most important being returning starter Malik Pope, who reinjured his knee before the Aztecs exhibition game.I dont know if well have any of the guys who were unable to play today, San Diego State coach Steve Fisher told the San Diego Union-Tribune after Fridays win. Youd have to say questionable, maybe highly questionable.Last, but not least, is the fact that the game will be played at the McCarthey Athletic Center, a 6,000-seat horror house where the Bulldogs are 163-13 since it opened in 2004.Gonzaga is again the preseason favorite to win the West Coast Conference title, but four starters, including Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis, are gone from last seasons NCAA tournament team.The Bulldogs restocked with two transfers from Pac-12 schools -- Jordan Mathews from Cal and Nigel Williams-Goss from Washington. Both were in the starting lineup in the Bulldogs 92-69 victory over Utah Valley in their opener. Also in the starting lineup was 7-foot-1 Przemek Karnowski, who missed all but the first five games last season because of a back injury.Perhaps all the new parts led to the Bulldogs struggling against Utah Valley despite the lopsided score.Its not going to be picture perfect the first time out, but I was happy with how we competed, said Williams-Goss, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review.Silas Melson led Gonzaga in scoring in the opener with 17 points, followed by Mathews, who had 16 points and hit four 3-pointers. Williams-Goss and Karnowski had 14 apiece in the typical Gonzaga balanced scoring.Utah Valley coach Mark Pope figures its just a matter of time before the Bulldogs get things in order.That is a great team, and theyre going to be way better than this in four months, Pope said, according to the Spokesman-Review. They did a great job with their length, challenging at the rim, and being disciplined to stay out of help and staying with shooters.The fact that Gonzaga had three players 7 feet or taller get playing time in the opener may be a bit intimidating for San Diego State.The Aztecs certainly need to start off better against Gonzaga than they did against San Diego, when they trailed by nine points in the first half.We came out, and we were so excited and so pumped up to play, said junior Trey Kell, according to the Union-Tribune. We just had to come back to Earth and play our normal game.The Aztecs return five of the seven players who started at least 16 games on last seasons San Diego State team that won the conference regular-season title by three games but failed to reach the NCAA tournament.Kell, the teams leading scorer last season, had 23 points in the opener, and Jeremy Hemsley, the No. 2 scorer a season ago, was the teams top scorer with 25.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Tatyana McFadden came into the Rio Paralympics with a chance to win seven gold medals, from the 100 meters to the marathon, an unprecedented feat for a wheelchair racer.Depending on how she does this weekend, shell go back to the United States with anywhere between four and six medals, at least three of them gold.A disappointment? Nope. Not for an athlete who is probably Americas best known Paralympian.The 100 meters is one of the toughest races, especially being a marathoner, McFadden said after she closed hard but failed to catch Chinas Liu Wenjun on Sept. 9. The 100 is really, really hard, so I was really proud with a silver.The other tough moment came Thursday, when McFaddens 4 X 400-meter relay team lost to China and then got disqualified for a lane violation.The highlights came in between, as McFadden staged her own mini-gold rush.McFadden nabbed her first gold of the games in the 400 meters last Sunday, over a second ahead of the silver medalist, her teammate Cheri Madsen.From there, she continued her dominance with her teammates in the 1,500 and 5,000, with the United States sweeping the podium in both events.As part of an international sporting festival that is among the worlds biggest, yet gets little attention in the United States, McFadden has become an established name. With sponsorships from BMW USA, BP, Coca-Cola and Nike, McFadden is embracing her role.Im so thankful and so grateful for every opportunity that comes my way, she said. I work so hard at it and its an honor. I love everything about this sport.Her teammates dont begrudge her the attention.Tatyanas been awesome, she goes above and beyond to get interviews and to get newspapers and news stations to cover our races, said Chelsea McClammer, McFaddens training partner, who was part of the U.S. podium sweeps in the 1,500 and 5,000.Up next is the 800 on Saturday.The marathon, one of the Paralympics final events, is where McFadden has been most successful in her career. Since coming in ninth place in the event in the 2012 Paralympics, she has completed the marathon grand slam, wiinning Boston, London, Chicago and New York all in the same calendar year.ddddddddddddShe was the first person -- able-bodied or otherwise -- to do so. And she went on to do it three years in a row.Deborah McFadden has seen her daughters prominence grow immensely since London. After growing up in a generation where people with disabilities were almost hidden, Deborah finds it refreshing.Things are changing, but we havent had a hero or an icon like you have your baseball or football icons, Deborah said. I think shes changing perceptions not just in the games but in the world. She shows that it doesnt matter what you have or dont have, its a matter of what you do with your body. She represents that.Born with spina bifida, McFadden is paralyzed from the waist down and spent the first six years of her life in a Russian orphanage.She wasnt expected to live long, but that all changed when she was adopted by Deborah, who brought her back to the United States and raised her with her longtime partner, Bridget OShaughnessey, in Maryland.On Thursday, McFadden was awarded the Whang Youn Dai Achievement Award, given to the male and female athletes who best exemplify the spirit of the Paralympic Games and the Paralympic values.McFadden doesnt shy away from documenting her life on social media, from her family, to her training. And with the Paralympics coming to a close on Sunday, shortly after the marathon medal ceremony, she is hopeful that the momentum created by the games will continue.I love telling my story and putting it on social media and having people just go `wow, McFadden said. And having coverage on TV is huge for us back in the States, so I think having it grow that way in popularity is huge for us and its a plus. Hopefully itll just keep growing, growing, growing.---Anna Pitingolo is a journalism student at Penn State University.
