Ye shall be known by your fruit.

Great find, thanks!

ETA: Looks like we're joining the group of "cool kids", and why not? Our offense is one of the highest scoring in the nation, we're sending players to the pros with regularity, trips to the Sweet 16 are taken for granted (not by me!!!), and there's a true "family" vibe within the team and the Gonzaga community. I give special thanks to the 2016-2017 squad that exorcised the demons within the program, particularly never making it to the Final Four. With holdovers Perk, Rui, & Killian, the squad is ready to take the next step forward.

As Father Tony always said, "to be continued". My opinion remains that the program continues its ascendancy, and that better days are ahead of us. But boy, it sure is fun right now!

Thanks to Mr. Timme, the Zags are now #16 on ESPN's 2019 class rankings.

#7 according to 247 (they integrate internationals much better than espn)

Damn, not sure it could top 2016. Totally forgot how unbelievably stacked that class was. And it’s still getting better. Time will tell!

Cool article. I got stuck on that site for a minute reading several others. All quick hit pieces but fun reads for a college hoops junkie. Will add this site to my list of pleasure reading sites or is it my list of places to go when wanting to procrastinate?

Good article. That picture of two Duke bigs is scary. Both look like they’re 23 and have 4 years in the NBA on them. Where do these “kids” come from anyway?

Article picks Duke over Zags in Maui final. Hope we win if that’s the championship game. If we lose but give Duke (or whomever) a hard fought and close game, I think we’ll be OK and avoid the drop we were experienced last year after our poor showing at Madison Square Garden. Isn’t fair, but some of these early games carry implications for seeding at The Dance.
