March Madness 2019: Gonzaga G Josh Perkins gets costly flagrant in final seconds against Texas Tech

Josh Perkins committed a rare flagrant foul in Gonzaga’s 75-69 loss to Texas Tech on Saturday.

The Bulldogs guard reached out of bounds and fouled a Red Raider during the Elite Eight matchup. Perkins was accessed a Flagrant 2 and Texas Tech received two free throws and maintained possession of the ball down the stretch.

The Bulldogs were within two points of the Red Raiders when Perkins committed the foul, and his blunder proved costly as Gonzaga missed its chance to advance to the Final Four.

Perkins, a redshirt junior, finished with 16 points and six assists on the night.

He also hit a clutch shot from 3-point range to reduce his team’s deficit just before his unusual violation.
