• Gonzaga’s three victories in the NCAA tournament are a relative windfall for the West Coast Conference, projected to be about $4,680,000 in the NCAA’s six-year rolling window.

Conferences are due $260,525 per unit — or games played — over a six-year stretch. That figure likely will increase somewhat during that period, but each extra game in 2015 would be worth at least $1.56 million total over that period.

The Zags’ victories would multiply that total by three, which is the highest collective win total by the WCC since 2010, when Gonzaga won a game and Saint Mary’s went to the Sweet 16.

Pac-12 representation, which combined to go 8-4, was eliminated with Arizona’s Elite Eight loss to Wisconsin. The league would figure to realize about $18,720,000 over that six-year stretch, divided among the membership.

• Duke point guard Tyus Jones was named outstanding player of the region, joined on the all-tournament team by Blue Devils Justise Winslow and Matt Jones and Zags Kyle Wiltjer and Domas Sabonis.

• Wiltjer, a fourth-year junior, was asked if he was committed to returning to what should be another talented GU team. “Of course,” he said. “I’ve got one more year of eligibility.”


I wonder if the WCC Conference Athletic Directors will be sending us a nice Thank You card. A cake would be nice also.

More likely to send us a note telling us to better next time because the conference needs the money!

Congrats to Kyle and Domas. Wow!!! Domas WAS a true warrior, and I'm glad he made it. Can you imagine how it cool it is to have a sub make All-Regional. Wow!!

He's a starter on 99% of D1 teams; just shows how stacked we were this year.

Really glad that Kyle is coming back next year. So good to have that question answered to end speculation.
