Nice column in Seattle Times:




You want to know something else that is surreal? That the two teams from the state of Washington to make the NCAA tournament this year are separated by a mere 18 miles, an unlikely hoops hotbed in eastern Washington.
Seattle might churn out Division I players, but right now, with the Huskies in a rut and Seattle University still trying to make its mark, Spokane County is where itís at.

Maybe we should cancel the Fusky series and replace it with a EWU home/home. It would be better for our OCC RPI..........

Go ZAGS, Go EAGS

“It’s very down to earth, very grass roots. A lot of people involved in Gonzaga are now involved in Eastern. They’re not abandoning Gonzaga; they’re involved in both programs. It’s a beautiful thing to see.’’Surreal, you might say.
