It was young Sammy Stockton:

Jammin’ for Sam: After slamming home two points in Gonzaga’s 77-60 win over San Diego on Saturday, Sacre ran down court and pointed at someone in the crowd behind the scorer’s table, but it wasn’t, as many thought, a gesture directed at former Zag great John Stockton.

“It was for (John’s son) Sammy, the youngest of the Stocktons,” Sacre said. “Sam, David (Stockton, GU sophomore point guard) and I went to lunch and Sam said, ‘If you dunk it, can you point at me?’ I was like, ‘OK, I’ll do it.’ I promised him.”

Thats pretty awesome.

Agreed, stories like this really make Gonzaga unique, likeable and totally cool.

I'm really enjoying Sacre's sports movie-esque season. He is a guy that could seriously dominate any team if he wants. Hope he goes to lunch with the Stocktons before every game from now on!

A better player maybe, but a better Zag I'm not sure we've every had in Rob Sacre.

Rony Turiaf cannot be topped - a man about to have heart surgery says to his former coach (Few was bedside pre-op) that Coach should not worry - "I'll be a good Zag" and went to Secretaries' kids games cannot be topped.

BUT - He can be matched or tied. Rob has met the bar.

I agree, Turiaf is the ultimate Zag. Rob's a close second though. What a personality. Can you imagine them playing together?
That could possibly be like crossing streams.
