By TOM SPOUSTAMARCH 27, 2015

HOUSTON — These were not the deadeye Gonzaga Bulldogs who could shoot opponents into submission without getting dirty underneath the basket. Nor were these the Bulldogs who could crash and bang when needed.

Gonzaga struggled to find a balance for much of Friday night, looking frustrated and out of sync against U.C.L.A, which many observers believed did not deserve to be in the N.C.A.A. tournament. But when the Bulldogs finally hit their stride, they arrived at a place they had reached only once before.

After a lackluster start, Gonzaga, a No. 2 seed, took control with its size and experience and pulled away for a 74-62 victory over the 11th-seeded Bruins.

Zags outrebounded UCLA and were +14 at the point in the game that mattered most. The final margin, 50 -39, was still a solid effort. Sounds like they crashed and banged fairly well.

Coach Alford & Players Post Game Transcript:

http://asaptext.com/marchmadness/media/4_SouthRegional/browse.php?browse_file_name=./transcripts/ucla_2015_03_27_21_21.html


Q. Coach, why are you so impressed with Coach Few and what he's been able to do with Gonzaga in the program over the years and to finally get through to where they're getting to the Elite 8 since the first time since 1989?

COACH ALFORD: He wins like 82 percent of his games. You're in college basketball and you're winning 82 percent of your games, you're doing a pretty good job. Win the league, win the tournament just about every year. They play a national schedule now. They play a very demanding schedule and not afraid to play people. They've gone into home and home with us, among other teams across the country. Look at the consistency of what -- I have no -- I have no idea how many years, but it's been a good length of time where every year they're winning. And, you know, advancing in this tournament is hard. You're playing on neutral floors. You're playing in buildings like this where it's huge, it's a dome. It's very few of these student-athletes have played in a building like this. So all of a sudden you've got jump shots hitting the backboard first. It's different. They've been a very good shooting team. We've had some very good shooting nights and both teams that are almost identical. We're 26 for 67, they're 27 for 67. We make three 3s, they make three 3s. It's very, very similar.

The difference was board play and one team got to the free throw line, and I think that was the difference in this game.

Gonzaga doesn't hurt itself. The Zags play like every player understands his role. They don't take many bad shots. They stay patient, doing so even when the game's tempo at one point got a bit hectic. And they definitely don't turn it over, as UCLA scored just four points on five Gonzaga turnovers.

Q. This is for Karnowski. I was just wondering, back in Poland, when was the first time you watched the NCAA Tournament?

PRZEMEK KARNOWSKI: Probably 2009, something like that. You have to be up until like 2:00 a.m, 3:00 a.m. to watch those games. For me, it was always a dream to be here and, you know, to play deep in the NCAA Tournament, and right now I'm here and I'm trying to enjoy every second of it.



Q. Coach, what did you tell your team just before that 12-0 run early on in the second half, really seemed to make a difference, turn it around?

COACH FEW: We made a defensive adjustment that -- or correction, I should say, weren't doing a good job of protecting the rim on the screen and roll action and getting up higher on our guarding the ball handler in the screen and roll, and also just again reinforce we needed to get the ball inside/out. From the bench you could tell both teams were kind of struggling shooting the ball. We made a concerted effort, called a bunch of sets that kind of pretty much demands that the ball goes in there, and the guys did a great job not only getting it to them but obviously Przemek and Domas delivered.

Hey, Phish

Also from the Press Transcript:


Q. Coach, since you've taken over the program, crossing this threshold of getting to the Regional Finals has been something that's been a struggle. I know the journey is not done for you, but how important is this win for the program to get back to the Regional Finals?


COACH FEW: I mean, the biggest thing that this win is, it allows this group to play together, which again is the highest motivating factor we got going. That's all they care about. We get two more days together guaranteed and 40 minutes away from getting a whole other week together, which I'm telling you the way they feel about each other and care about each other and love each other, that is the motivating factor right there. As far as the program, you know, the players, 100 percent about the players and the players that have been here and we can feel them from all across the world, either playing in the NBA or playing overseas or working and raising families, they're all behind us. They've all reached out to us. They know -- it's the one accomplishment we haven't done, you know, go to a Final Four, and now we finally have an opportunity to do that.

It's probably unfair to blame the Houston site for the offensive struggles, but it's worth noting that Pomeroy went through and calculated 3-point shooting for the 10 NCAA Tournament games that have been played at NRG Stadium since 2008 (along with the first half), and found that teams have shot 30.1 percent on nearly 400 attempts. That also includes the 2011 national championship game, where Butler shot 18 percent from the field.

Gonzaga will probably need to hit some jump shots in its next game to advance to its first Final Four, but its interior game was more than enough to beat UCLA. The Zags answered a mini-run from UCLA to open the second half with a surge of their own, increasing their lead to as many as 17 points in a game that reflected how far their program has come during Few's tenure.

Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer raved about Karnowski's work.

"He was a beast down there, just gobbling up offensive boards," Wiltjer said. "It's so easy for us, especially when we're on the perimeter, to just throw it down to him and he gets a bucket."

Wiltjer, who makes 54.8% of his field goal attempts, said he doesn’t like to make much of the arena.

“If you are a shooter, you are a shooter,” he said. “You’ve just got to have that mentality you are going to make every shot.”

Gonzaga point guard Kevin Pangos, who has made 40.1% of his three-point attempts, said it’s possible the enclosed stadium could throw the Bulldogs’ shooters off.

“But the rim is the same height,” he said, “so you just don’t think about it and shoot.”

Bud Withers, "Gonzaga goes big to Przemek Karnowski, and now goes to the Elite Eight" (http://old.seattletimes.com/html/ncaatournament/2025998760_gonzagamen28xml.html)

About the time the Zags made their last Sweet 16, in 2009, is when Karnowski figures he began watching the NCAA tournament in Poland. So he’s been spared a lot of the angst that has attended Gonzaga’s struggles advancing.

He took matters into his own hands against the Bruins, scoring a game-high 18 points, collaring nine rebounds and dropping two gorgeous feeds to Domas Sabonis for easy baskets, one behind the back.

“  ‘Magic’ Przemek,” said Gary Bell Jr. “That’s what coach (Donny) Daniels calls him.”


“Keep riding those guys when they’re playing like that,” Bell said of Karnowski and Sabonis, who added 12 points on 6-for-9 shooting. “It’d be kind of stupid not to give them the ball.”

So for the Zags, it was a more methodical campaign than a mercurial one. It was death by kilogram for the Bruins (22-14), most of them applied by Karnowski.

The Gonzaga bigs — that’s an apt term — keyed a 50-39 rebounding advantage.

KenPom's Blog: The NRG Effect (http://kenpom.com/blog/index.php/weblog/entry/the_nrg_effect)


After Friday’s action, there have been 15 college basketball games played in NRG neé Reliant Stadium since it opened in 2002. In those games, the 30 participating teams have made 178 of their 553 3-point attempts for a success rate of 32.2 percent. This could be the result of cataclysmic randomness, but if a team shot 32.2 percent over 30 games, you’d be pretty convinced they weren’t a very good shooting team. A team shooting like that this season would rank 260th in Division-I, and this includes six games using the shorter 3-point line.

Furthermore, none of the 30 teams involved shot lower than 30 percent for the season in which they played at NRG/Reliant. Not every team was as good as Gonzaga this season or Saint Mary’s in 2010, but in aggregate, they made 36.3 percent of their 3’s in those seasons. In 553 attempts, we would expect those teams to make 201 3’s given their season-long percentage, or 23 more than they did. That difference is about two standard deviations off of the expectation.

Gonzaga made just 40 percent of its shots, including 3 of 19 3-pointers, but it still put up 74 points by pounding the ball inside and cleaning up on the offensive glass.

Gonzaga’s defense bottled up a Bruins offense that had been in high gear in recent weeks.

“We haven’t won them all pretty, but that’s the beauty of this team,” Few said. “That’s why we’ve been so good, that’s why we have 35 of them. There are going to be nights when you can’t make shots from the perimeter.

When the Zags’ options in the NCAA Sweet 16 were go big or go home, they turned to Karnowski, and finally denied UCLA, 74-62, to reach their first Elite Eight since the program’s whole improbable run began in 1999.

“Ever since I’ve been here, you always hear about the Elite Eight team, the Elite Eight team,” mused guard Kevin Pangos. “Now you have to say, ‘Which team are you talking about?’ That’s kind of cool.”

The headline says it all. The four games this weekend that will decide the Final Four participants are the best collective set of Elite Eight games in history. This isn’t mere conjecture or hyperbole either. I went back and looked at every Elite Eight since 1985, the first year of the modern 64-team bracket. Though there have been tournaments where the final eight teams had a lower sum of seeds (add up the seeds for the 2007 Elite Eight and you get a staggering 13, while the 2009 Elite Eight featured teams with a 16 — this year checks in at 21), but none of those, nor any other years, can compare to the four games we’re about to see this weekend. (Also, the sum of seeds is a flawed stat: Neither Louisville nor Michigan State deserved their No. 4 or No. 7 seed and having Cinderella teams in the Elite Eight such as VCU or George Mason is more fun than seeing, say, an underachieving No. 4 seed.) Trust me on this, or go look the archives and see for yourself. Nothing can top 2015.

To get there, the Bulldogs will have to get past an old nemesis – Duke – on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. PDT, and possibly past the batter’s-eye nightmare that seems to infect shooters in this tomb, if not all football-stadiums-turned- basketball-gyms.

Nice article from SportsIllustrated.com. Several funny lines about Few's lovey-dovey talk about his team which made me laugh.That is a great piece.
And when it was over, Gonzaga coach Mark Few poured some verbal high fructose corn syrup on his press conference. He talked about all the lovey-dovey college stuff that makes people roll their eyes. But if you watched the game, you could see it. You could see what Few meant when he said this:

"The biggest thing with this win is, it allows this group to play together, which is the highest motivating factor they’ve got going on. We’re 40 minutes away from another week together. The way they feel about each other, care about each other and love each other, that is the motivating factor."

That’s nice, Coach, but those of us in the media will choose your motivating factors, OK? You just coach the team.

We have decided that your team's motivating factor is to bring Gonzaga to its first Final Four, thus legitimizing the incredible success the program has enjoyed for the last 17 years … unless you then lose in the Final Four, at which point we will decide you need to win a national championship. Got it? That’s your narrative. Don’t stray from it unless we give you permission.
