This is very awesome. So, Hank Anderson coached from 1952-1972. So, how many head coaches has Gonzaga had in the last 58 years? Not very many, apparently.

A perfect game for Mark Few to become the winningest coach at Gonzaga. EVER!!! Congratulations to Few and his staff, because at Gonzaga it's done as a team.

He is going to set a few marks that will never, ever be broken before he is done here.

All he needs is about another 20 years here to be a lock for the Coaches Hall of Fame. He'll still be (sort of) young!

Congratulations to Coach Few. After the WCC Tournament there were several people on this site trashing the coach, but he did a great job preparing this team for a tough trip to Buffalo. And they beat the #3 team in the ACC. Pretty good, I would say.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Don't you know the protocol? We're only allowed to use coach Few's name when we lose.



I liked the stat--coach Few has made it to the second round 8 out of the 11 (now 9 of 12) times he's been in the tournament--and typically he's not afforded a protected seed.

I don't agree with everything he does as a coach but I wouldn't trade him for anybody in the country. His record speaks for itself. And aside from Josh's trouble a few years ago how much embarrassing nonsense have we has to endure in his 11 years? What more could a fan ask for? Congratulations to Few on an already brilliant tenure.

And clearly the "nonsense" with Josh and Theo had nothing to do with Few and a lack of discipline. If it had been completely up to Few, they would've been gone. Only by the intercession of non-basketball people were they allowed to work their way back.

I agree with ZD that I don't always like the style of coaching in-games, but you've got to love the results.

The only reason I would object to expanding the Dance field is that Mark may very well set a record for consecutive appearances ....truly amazing what he has done and where he has done it...
