Wow, another great story. I came on the fan list with Morrison's time as a Zag. It's good to read/learn more about the Zags before that and how it has all transpired. The more I learn the deeper my fandom :) Next season I'll have the time to catch a Long Beach State basketball game or 2 or 3.
Go Zags!

“He goes, ‘We gotta … We gotta … We gotta … I don’t know what we gotta do. We’ll figure it out,'”
Monson was caught on video for that and it appeared on CBS, I think in the "one shining moment" spot. I have searched for it a few times and always come up short, but it is priceless to see.

I went to a LBS Irvine game .....Monson won.....after the game I said Hi and told him I was GU Alum and was at the UCONN Elite Eight game (which we led at half) and will never forget that run. Thanked him. A big smile and response of "it was a special time".

I had videotaped that "Road to Tampa" CBS Special along with many of the games. I made a copy of the tapes for the GU Alumni office (which they promptly lost). About 5 years ago a fellow Zag borrowed these and put them on YouTube I'll try to locate it tonight .... but you are correct. Monson is a hoot in the GU vignettes (as is Quentin Hall). This piece was done before one shining moment as the Final Four had yet to be played.
