SPOKANE — Point guard Derek Raivio will likely play Saturday when No. 10 Gonzaga hosts Virginia.


Raivio missed most of the loss to Washington after badly bruising his back when he fell while driving to the basket.


He sat out the next two games, when Gonzaga (6-2) beat Washington State and Oklahoma State.


“I think I’m ready right now,” said Raivio, averaging 14 points in six games.

• Arizona senior guard Hassan Adams, the leading scorer for the No. 24 Wildcats, will be in the starting lineup Saturday at Utah despite being cited for disturbing the peace.


• Stanford forward Kristen Newlin is expected to miss at least a week because of an injured left leg.
