Lots of articles out there about the Zags and I thought we should start a thread... probably should have done it earlier!

Link to the Spokesman-Review's Zag page (http://www.spokesman.com/sports/team/gonzaga-basketball/). Lots of good stories there this week.

From KREM: Former Zag Bakamus could reunite with Bulldogs in second round of NCAA Tournament (https://www.krem.com/article/sports/former-zag-bakamus-could-reunite-with-bulldogs-in-second-round-of-ncaa-tournament/293-2fad9f9e-5d5b-414d-9365-22397ba04f6f)

Also from KREM: 'He was the smartest kid Iíve ever coached': Jeremy Jones' HS coach reflects on his career (https://www.krem.com/article/sports/gonzaga-bulldogs/he-was-the-smartest-kid-ive-ever-coached-jeremy-jones-hs-coach-reflects-on-his-career/293-7ebe19b2-39ca-4182-bc96-994b1ecb7acf)

I know there are and will be lots more stories... let's get in one place for easy reading!

Fairleigh Dickinson can't lose its own identity just because it faces a national powerhouse.

The Knights are one of the most efficient teams from beyond the arc and will need those shots to fall again. They rank fifth in Division I by making 40.4 percent from deep, and capitalized on that in the First Four. Senior Darnell Edge knocked down 7-of-9 treys and led all scorers with 33 points.

Thanks for the links, folks!

I can't recommend the photo album strongly enough. Just a work of art! http://www.spokesman.com/galleries/2019/mar/21/ncaa-tournament-gonzaga-vs-fairleigh-dickinson/

From twitter, SWX interview with Josh Perkins: https://www.watrust.com/personal/banking/index

From twitter, SWX interview with Killian Tillie: https://twitter.com/SamAdamsTV/status/1108927994943279105

Killian Tillie on THAT dunk: "I just closed my eyes and dunked it." @KillianTillie is proven right on a great photograph from Torrey Vail. Check it out!

New York Times

"The higher seeds had a good day and the blueboods ó Kentucky and Kansas ó won big, but on the first day of the N.C.A.A. tournament, no one won bigger than Gonzaga."

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/21/sports/ncaa-tournament-highlights.html

"But the most encouraging note for the Zags is the crisp play of Killian Tillie, their multiskilled but oft-injured big man. He scored 10 points, making both 3-pointers he attempted, and also kept the ball flowing with crisp passes and moved his feet well on defense."

Scored ten points? Made 2 3 balls? Shoddy fact checking for a major newspaper

Fake news! j/k

I think that's Crandall's stat line they're quoting. Geez

The author wrote the story at the half. Killian had 10 pts in the 1st half. It looks like he updated one of the games but not ours.

Agree but shoddy work to be not identify you are stating facts for only a half and two update others but not ours

Well, Kendra missed the fact that Geno was the 5th player in double figures, so there's that.
