    WAIT, so the famous, respected, trustworthy Robert Perry was WRONG?!?!?! NO WAY!!!
    "After holding open practices during his first three seasons, Romar closed them to reporters last season, citing the "Gonzaga factor." He felt his team was compromised before the 2004-05 game against the Zags, that the opponent awaiting him and beating him 99-87 in Spokane seemed a little too well prepared."

    Land the Drexel lad and we are a solid contender to go far in March.

    Go Zags!!

    CBS Story...

    Gonzaga forward Kyle Wiltjer has decided to return for his senior season, sources told CBSSports.com.

    Wiltjer averaged 16.8 points and 6.2 rebounds on his way to becoming a consensus second-team All-American last season, as well as a first-team All-WCC member. He will be one of the preseason favorites for national player of the year next season, given that all five members of the first All-American team and four of the six members of the second All-American team will be playing professionally next season.

    That sounds much better. Strange that GZ said something awfully similar not long ago.

    Preseason rank = 7

    Seed = 2 (In Spokane)

    6 Months to perfect the 2-3 zone and get ready to beat teams 95-80.

    Ugh. Lol. True though. I just hope we can get someone that can play some defense. We know Emac, Draino, the Bigs, and Melson can ... Can we get that one or two extra players? Is it May yet?

    Go !!! Zags !!!

    I did not expect them to be back. That is a great deal for the school and I hope it works out for them. No one is promised tomorrow.

    CBS' writer picks Wiltjer for his POY next year:
    Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie · 26m 26 minutes ago
    Wiltjer is probably my preseason pick for player of the year next year. Big, big news for the Zags.

    I like our chances even without him.

    Agreed Angelo. He needs a catchy moniker like Frank the Tank. Kyle the Pile? Kyle by the Mile? Kyle with lots of Style? Kyle don't turn that Dial?
