    Well we won't know until we try and it is very apparent that Gonzaga is now trying to get these types of kids. I have my fingers crossed. To be fair here, 5 years or so ago we were probably saying...

    The whole thing is surreal. We have locked up two top 50 type recruits in the 2019 class and are among the leaders for two more top 20 kids. Yes, it is very surreal but appears to be the new...

    Great and logical question regarding Kessler. This is/will continue to be a crutch the Zags lean on. What I know (and we all assume) is that Walker wants to be in the NBA and have a long career....
