"from glen to glen....


Our little Danny Pariseau tallies 4 fouls, 2 points on 1 for 8 shooting (0 for 3 from 3 point range) and 3 turnovers. Derek scored 28, mostly with him covering.

Plus a few flops trying to draw calls.

I was glad to see a few nice screens thrown at him tonight so Raivio could get open for some shots.

No reason to knock the kid - he played his butt off, just like we want our guys to do. I hope Santa Clara tears the NIT up and Pariseau scores 40.

Just as long as we're dancing! Aw yeah!

Any reason to knock Parasite is worth it imho

Agreed, Nev. Congrats to Danny for a great year. He displays a large amount of heart, and makes Spokane proud. Congrats, and best of luck in the NIT.

Will they even make the NIT? I hope they do, but those losses to Pepperdine and LMU were really bad.

True - no harm in wishing him well now...

Samhan on the other hand has it coming next year :-)

Why do people hate this kid? He wanted to go to GU, couldn't earn a schollie, transfered to a school that was in the WCC and vowed to beat the Zags. So what? That's called competitive spirit. Is there something else I'm missing?

Danny boy is the one who said the only reason he transferred to SC was to beat the Zags!! Live by the sword or in his case BIG MOUTH and you die by it!:

He is a little pest who thinks he is better than he is. I appreciate a humble, hard-working kid like a Brian Michaelsen who works his tail off to earn a spot on a team. Danny always had a chip on his shoulder,his parents transferred him to another high school to showcase him, and he thought Few should have given him a scholarship.

That is why I don't see much to like and admire. Plus, he seems to have had some obsession for beating us, not for his team, but to satisfy his personal agenda. Why should I like that?

I say yes, even with their couple of bad losses. 21 wins, an okay RPI... They'll make it. I honestly hope so. The more WCC teams in the post-season (any post-season), the happier I am.

Danny is a tenacious competitor and the kind of guy you hate to play against and love if he's on your team. He's done plenty to earn this Zag fan's respect. And face facts, it only benefits Gonzaga to have quality opponents in conference like Danny and the rest of his Bronco crew.

Totally agree - we're all always talking about how we want the rest of the WCC to step up and win some games. You need to have some swagger to win games. The kid has some swagger to him. SCU won some games. Except for the one in Spokane, we should be happy about it.

Any kid that spits at the court in KII after a victory is not worthy of respect. I am sorry. I liked the kids spunk before; however such acts are not worthy of any athlete.

Hey, he had a great year. I won't deny he had heart. I won't deny he had more talent than his 5'11" and his haircut would lead you to believe. I'm going to leave it at that.
The next bug on my windshield will be Samhan, but that's next year.
Bye, Danny.

But seriously, I hope they get into the NIT and go big. I think the coach and the team deserve to keep playing this year. I'll be rooting for them.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with what Danny did. He did well by himself and good for him. But with his words and actions he opens himself up to being disliked by the masses. He played his role, and we're playing ours.

Danny does not compare in ability or class to other guys who have been a thorn in our side over the years like Travis Neisen or Daniel Kickert. Danny only merits being an obscure footnote in our overall history.
