There are some nice game pics in the SI Zags photo album (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/ncaa/men/teams/gonzaga-bulldogs/gallery/). This one made me smile.

Gonzaga's Elias Harris, top center left, gets a technical foul for yelling at Loyola's Tim Diederichs (32) after Diederichs intentionally fouled Harris in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game, Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, in Spokane, Wash. Gonzaga beat Loyola 79-59. (AP Photo/Jed Conklin)

I'd rather see the bitter beer face during a dunk, thouugh.

Rerun showed how hard that foul was. Serious malice. Must have hurt a lot. If I was Elias, I'd have done more than just yell. Not sure what the point is to foul so hard. Maybe Diedtrichs didn't know how hard. Seems like a simple attempt to block the ball would have done it.

Not that our kids are angels but I don't remember our players doing stuff like this hard foul. Anyone?

Look, his eyes are closed... how could he be going for the ball. What a blatant hack job on Elias shoulder. Good poise on Elias for not really going after him.

Anyone else notice that on the very next play, Elias drove and made a little floater, while at the same time bumping into Diedrichs and knocking him on his butt? I thought that was a fitting next play.

I remember that it was like a little cherry on top of the pie.
