It wasn’t a foregone conclusion Bakamus would attend Gonzaga, but the seed was planted early on. He attended Gonzaga’s team camp for years, and his father, Bill, long-time coach at Mark Morris High, is well known to GU’s staff.

“His dad is a legend everywhere, one of the all-time characters,” GU coach Mark Few said.

Bakamus was trying to decide between playing at Clark Community College, Puget Sound (where his dad went to school) and walking on at Gonzaga. He talked to GU assistant coach Tommy Lloyd last spring and decided on Gonzaga. He joins junior guard Brian Bhaskar, who was selected from GU’s annual walk-on tryout. Bakamus will redshirt. Bhaskar is on crutches with a foot injury.

“It’s really a dream being here and going from a fan watching games and cheering for guys to being part of it, practicing with them and hanging out with them off the court,” Bakamus said. “It has really showed me why this program is so successful when you see how hard the guys are working and how often the coaches are watching film.”
