As a corollary to former1dog's thread, what missed shots by other teams were memorable.
My first thought was the wide open missed layup by LMU that preserved a 1 point win in the conference tourney championship in the Kennel during the 05-06 season.

- pangos misses last second shot at USF, we lose by one, the loss ends up costing us the conference title.
- that shot goes in, Gonzaga has 17 straight conference wins.

Blake Stepp against Zona.

That's what came to mind for me too, would've made the game even more of a ESPN instant classic.

Blake Stepp against Zona.

Blake actually had three separate chances to win that game and missed all three shots... end of regulation missed 3 that would have won it (put back by Skinner to send to OT), missed a three at the end of OT at the buzzer with the game tied, missed bank shot at the end of the game.

Then the next year he had an atrocious shooting % in the Nevada debacle. One of the all-time great Zags, but March was cruel to Blake.

Was that the game where Stephen Gray made that blind save that USF scored off of, giving them new life?

He went something like 1-14 against Wyoming, too.

I was never a Blake fan, and your comments explain why. This was prior to games up here on NBC Spokane affiliate, ESPN games onto Canada TV, streaming games etc.
I probably saw Blake Stepp at his worst. And I'd often say "this guy is no Dickau or even Frahm" --who stepped up big into March. I know I didn't get near the full experience on Stepp like the rest of you.

Wondering : anyone have those three guard's numbers all time in the tournament?

- no, because I remember watching that play on t.v., and the usf game I reference was perhaps the only game I had no t.v. and I could only listen to on the radio.

- but I think the gray play you mention played a large part to another loss to USF.

I know stepp was in the high 20s % wise. I can't find the stats now.

I loved stepp. He was my favorite player. He struggled in march. Seemed in his head. I know players shoot worse usually in March due to better competition.

His stats for NCAA tourny.

Freshman year 6-20 from the field for 30% and 3-16 from 3 for 18.8%.

Sophomore year 1-13 and 0-5 from 3.

Junior year 11-32 and 5-19 from 3.

Senior year 5-29 and 2-21 from 3.

Total stats 23-84 from the field for 27.3% and 10-61 from 3 for 16.3%.

Those are all memorable but I was hoping to list missed shots/plays by the opposing teams that would have won/sealed the game for them and put a loss on the Zags.

Another example was the bonehead foul by SCU's Brody Angley on a freshman Steven Gray that sent SG to the line to sink the FT and send the game to OT where GU prevailed in 2OT.

Wasn't that Elias Harris and it was regular season game at USF. Crazy ending.

Funny side story: I replicated that to the first ever Club/AAU team I got to coach. They kept trying to save the ball under our own basket, and Head Coach was losing his mind on the kids. I told them about Gonzaga game, I threw it to myself , chased it down and hit the Three! Ha ! I suck at shooting too, it was cool to make it play out to the kids just like it happened. Made Zags loss more tolerable.

Thanks Zags11

Just what I kinda thought. Frahm was big in some of those March games.

Dan missed most of his soph year w/ a broken foot, incl the tourney. You probably mean fr yr at UW.

Jr year he made 11/21 threes in the tourney, not 8/23. Scored 68 pts in 3 games while taking 44 fg attempts.
