I love the contributions we're getting from Jose Perkins!




Gonzaga took the suspense out of it with a balanced attack and by shooting 61 percent in the latest installment of this rivalry. Jose Perkins scored 16 points and Domantas Sabonis added 15 for Gonzaga.

Is there video of the post-game press conference anywhere? Would love to see that.

That EMac dunk and the soundbite of "Let's go dancin' folks!" is almost as poignant as the "Runner" video. If only because of the context in which it came.

I liked this from that SF Gate story:
Bennett paid tribute to Gonzaga’s program in general and head coach Mark Few in particular.

“They’ve had a lot to do with us getting good,” Bennett said. “They put the bar up there and we’ve tried to get there with them. …

“I don’t think anybody in the country — you can take Duke, you can take any of them — has done a better job with a program than Mark and the people at Gonzaga.”

Yes, comments like that increase my respect for someone. I'm sure it's not easy for him to acknowledge that either, especially to the media.

Wiltjer. Sabonis. McClellan. Dranginis. Perkins. Melson. Alberts.

They were only 7 but they fought like 700. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG-ZxrG7htU

Great column by Matt Calkins in today's The Seattle Times. http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/gonzaga-bulldogs/zags-have-ncaa-bid-and-anything-else-wouldnt-feel-right/


That was for Dan Dickau. Adam Morrison, too.

It was for Matt Santangelo, Ronny Turiaf and Blake Stepp as well.

It was for the ride Dan Monson started, and the party Mark Few preserves.

Gonzaga out of the NCAA menís basketball tournament? Donít even entertain the thought.

Just back in Spokane and checked to see if anyone had posted coverage from the Las Vegas Review Journal. Didn't notice any so here are a couple articles with a great picture of Eric McClellan making "confetti angels":

Thanks for posting. If that story doesn't cause tears to well up, nothing will.

Looks like the 7 chose to take alternate transportation out of Las Vegas:

It's no wonder that Josh is a very good player and person he has a truly wonderful father.

I found Monday's BYU game on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0B8zBHU72Y

I haven't been able to find Tuesday's SMC game. Anyone know if it is online? Went to both but would like to hear the ESPN commentary, relive the excitement, etc. :)

Found it :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2tDxq1KprU
