You did what everyone said you couldn't do, you overcame obstacles and barriers that everyone thought it was too difficult to overcome. You have a heart of a champion and a warrior. You may have lost tonight but you will always be winners in our heart. Thank you for all the joy you have given us. We love you!

Yeah enjoy it while we can I guess, but I doubt Mark Few will ever get a chance at redemption like UNC did ..

We had that game. Up 1 with less than 2 minutes to play and we couldn't get a stop .. we let Berry kill us all freakin night and then the AND1 on NWG by Jackson .. then we went full ###### mode ..

Every player, coach, and fan of UNC knew NWG was gonna try to score for a 8th straight possession

I can't believe Mark Few didn't dial up something down low or a drive a dish .. terrible terrible decision by NWG

Ugh.. I hate that we let it slip away. It's the ONLY game UNC won all year when they got out rebounded .. it's the ONLY game all year we got out shot % wise...


Especially considering how it's damn near impossible to get back to this point ..

Huge thank you to this team. You showed the CBB world that GU is made of the right stuff, and I couldn't be more proud to be a fan, especially tomorrow.

NWG: Hold your head up. You are a huge reason we got to where we did. Ice that ankle, and get busy next season.

Mt K: Thank you for coming to GU. You will go down as one of the best and most legendary GU players. Next year you will be so missed. I'm so happy for you that your recovery from injury went the way it did. Go make some money and do what you love. GU is always here for you.

Mathews: I wish we had you for your whole college career. That shot against WVU was clutch, and it's the highlight of this tournament, but it is not the sum total of what you'll be remembered for. Thank you for ending your career at GU. Zag for life.

Rem: Who needs cheer leaders when you have The Rem Bakamus on the bench? Beyond your sideline antics, I loved watching you play when you did. Thank you for being a big part of this program. Best of luck to you from here on.

To everyone else: This is just a new beginning. We are not a flash in the pan. Two decades of heat rising will not go away that quickly. Reward yourselves for an incredible 2016-17 season and an historic NCAA tournament for GU, and I will cheer just as hard for you this November as I did tonight.

And thank you to the coaches and staff. What a great program. A real gem for the school and the Spokane community.

A BIG HEARTY congratulations to this fine group of young men. What a great season even tho it didn't quite finish the way we all hoped it would.

SHem, thank you for five great years of watching you. We're so glad you recovered the way you did from your back injury. Whatever you do
you will ALWAYS be in our hearts. And you will succeed and be loved wherever you go.

Jordan, thanks for joining our family. In that one year you've shown yourself to be a true ZAG. Good luck in your future.

Rem, thanks for all you've done for this team in your years here. You've earned you ZAG status in all you've done.

The rest of the team hold your heads high and come back for another run next year. Final Four is no longer just a pipe dream. You
can make it there again and win it all.

We love you one and all. Just remember you "have gone where no ZAG has gone before".

It is the dichotomy of college hoops. You experience the joy of watching a player grow and yet you have to say goodbye at some point. Whether it is the 1 year player like Jordan or the 5th yr miracle like Shem... you have to say goodbye. The best part is knowing that each and every player that goes through will remain connected, because the focus has always been on the growth of the program not the individual. This is something special that all Zag fans share. Players,Coaches, School, and Fans all united for a common goal. This is something special that really is the exception not the norm.

Thank you Bulldogs for the most enjoyable basketball season of my life as a fan. Going to miss Karnowski and Rem a.k.a. Shrek and Donkey who seem like they have been here forever. Going to miss Jordan who in just a short time made a name for himself and not just as a former teletubbies child star ("bounce bounce bounce"). At the beginning of this season there was a thread that asked who would step up for this team and take the clutch shots-we know that person was NWG. Come back for your senior year.

JW3 was the X factor, Tillie and collins were the wonder twins. Melson and Perk helped power the best defense we have ever had and above it all was the coaching staff that had their best season too.

Who can forget the glimpses of the future with our new fan favorite RUI who made garbage time must see TV.

What a great season. Thanks everybody.

Go Zags!

Amidst the wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth, Mark Few continues to set the standard for dignity and class. Hall of famer coach & man.

Rush the Court‏ @rushthecourt 10h10 hours ago
Few, on this wknd: "Emotionally moved on multiple occasions. [...] over 100 former players here. It was a great shared experience."

Also worth noting that Mark Few not only refused to blame the refs, he praised them. Lost with class and perspective and accountability.

One of the toughest parts of my job is interviewing players right after a gut wrenching loss. Their poise never ceases to amaze me.

To a man, Gonzaga has credited North Carolina and refused to blame the refs. No surprise to see this group handle a tough loss with class.

Great respect for how Mark Few, his staff and the @ZagMBB represented the @WCChoops @WCCsports all season.

May we show the same class and dignity. Not sure I've met the standard, but I'm trying.

Had a talk with my 15 YO son this morning. He's played competitive sports for 8+ years, on the losing side at least half the time. I told him this was a day to vent a bit, tomorrow we look ahead.

Proud of this team... no ifs, ands, or buts. They put it all on the line and almost reach nirvana.

Extremely, extremely proud of this team. What a special and unbelievable run and something I hope none of us ever forgets. The best is still yet to come for this program.

We have Arrived! We have earned Recognition. And most and best of all, We are Clean, We are RESPECTED and we are Proud.

We lost a game, but we won hearts and minds. Hold you heads high, boys, nothing beats that. Nothing!

I am SO thankful for this season. It was an amazing ride after 5 years with the team. I started to follow you guys when Przemek first came to Spokane. Back then I was struggling with academic basketball - never understood the hype, the competition level, rivalries etc.

Since, I learned a lot. I understand what Gonzaga is all about, I love academic basketball probably more than any European league ever. The level is crazy high, the stories, the people that create programs ... it's just a huge thing I will follow till my days are over - and believe me, I still have pleeenty of days to live to the fullest.

Anyway - thank you Gonzaga for being a part of my life last 5 years. I will stay here even after Przemek's departure as I said - once Zag, always Zag.

Go Zags!

So proud. Sooo very proud. Handled themselves like winners, through and through. A "good team" can't reach the heights they did, but they proved that a "great team" can.

*Aside, when UNC's sanctions come down and they get many get seasons' worth of wins voided, does that make us National Champs?

Probably the wrong place to kid.

The greatest team, and the greatest season. Ever.
