I liked this quote by Few about Micah Downs winning the MVP award for the tournament and regarding how he was shipped from high school to high school and then to Kansas.


"We always preach to our guys, if you just stick with it at Gonzaga, it always ends up good here," Few said warmly. "He deserves it. This is the first place he's ever stayed. Ever."

Kiddwell likes all the Zags, but Micah Downs is his favorite. Micah runs like a deer, jumps like a gazelle, plays tough D. His long shot is pure.

Me too. Made my eyes well just a bit, I admit.
