    Default Congrats to Sean Mallon

    Love hearing good news about the quality student athletes we have at this school. Check out the women's board for two of our women's b-ball players who are also Academic All-Americans.

    Shawn is a great kid, he deserves all Kudos he can get.

    Congrats Mallon. Not bad considering the sub-par high school education he endured

    Well, BDS, Sean was eligible and ought-after by Stanford, so I suppose he'd just miss the cut.

    Well, if he was ONLY eligible at Stanford I'm certain SCU wouldn't take him.



    In all seriousness, this is a huge thing for Sean. Quite an accomplishment, especially considering this was with Graduate degree work, while most others were undergrad.

    sean is the prototypical student-athlete...sometimes people forget that these kids are students who play basketball....pargo had a great quote in his spokesman interview the other day when he said something along the line of "without class, there is no basketball"

    congratulations to sean...he will be missed on and off the court in future years

    Plus, that Organizational Leadership program is a Ph.D program (I had a friend who went through it a couple years back) - depending on his class load, Mallon could finish pretty soon with a doctorate degree. Not too shabby, if you ask me...

    Haha, sub-par indeed, I think there is some genetic mutation that occurs during one's stay there... am so thankful my uncle no longer lives behind the school, as EVERY TIME we drove past my mother would start singing that blasted fight song.

    Nevtelen,

    Actually, the Org. Leadership is a Master's Program. This is essentially a two year program.http://www.gonzaga.edu/Academics/Col...ip/default.asp

    There is a Doctoral program for Leadership studies, but that is a separate program and not the one Sean is doing.

    Hopefully Rick Majerus can mention this Sean Melon achievement next time he does a Zag game.

    Default too many sylables?

    Hopefully Rick Majerus can mention this Sean Melon achievement next time he does a Zag game.

    Unfortunately, achievement has more than two sylables. Unless the word is in a major food group, it's doubtful Mr. Majerus could spit it out.

    Congratulations to Sean...it's been an honor to have you on the team!

    Reminds us of what the first part of 'student-athlete' is all about.

    I've been a critic of Mallon's up until this year. I'm really going to miss his presence on the floor this year. He's a leader, he sets an amazing example, and is a fine example of what a scholarship to Gonzaga can get you if you work hard.

    Angelo, I love your quote from Norm Few about no record trout from the LA river. I grew up in east LA. Never saw any fisherman at the LA river either.
