    Gonzaga not buying Gamecocks star’s ‘really nervous’ dig

    The comment drew mostly eye rolls from Gonzaga, which didn’t lash out in response. The closest to a retort came from junior forward Johnathan Williams, the Bulldogs’ defensive stopper who likely will see a lot of Thornwell.

    “I’m not nervous at all,” Williams said. “I’ve been sleeping like a baby. We all have our own opinions. I guess that’s what motivates them.”

    Not to break the flow of the thread, but I just had a few comments;

    First, thanks for all that contributed to this thread by tracking down all of the articles and clips. All very much appreciated.

    Second, we have seen over the years how the media coverage increases round by round and this first, Final Four has not disappointed. Which segues to ...

    Third, for many on this board, including myself, the school Gonzaga means more to me than the team Gonzaga. It is not lost on me what the success of the basketball program has meant to the well-being of the school. So thank you ... to all that support the board, that support the team, that supports the school.

    I can't find a link to it ( yet ) but Neil Everett ( of SportsCenter's "Gonzaga - America's Team" ) just had a great piece on Friday's SC LA version. We've known he grew up in Spokane, and went to Oregon, but the piece showed his even deeper roots at both schools.


    Found it from the other thread ...

    Wow. I hope it's a win-win situation for Neil tonight so that it can be a win-win situation for him on Monday too

    Short feature on Team Chaplain, Fr. Case.

    He thinks GU will prevail Saturday. “You know what the saying is, ‘Go Zags!’ It’s not ‘Go home, Zags!’ ”

    Though officially retired and known to call himself a “vice president with nothing to do,” Case has a few other duties at Gonzaga. But right now, he’s focused on cheering for some talented young men he has come to admire.

    After the interview was over and the photos had been taken, I asked him if he had any nicknames.

    He cracked a thin smile and said, “None that you could print.”

    Ugg, hate seeing those 3pt numbers from Houston.

    Good thing this team doesn't need to hit a single three to win. Worry about FTs

    Jim Meehan: Gonzaga knows it can rely on JWIII. . .

    The Zags have had a number of defensive stoppers over the years. Eric McClellan (2016), Gary Bell Jr. (2015), Mike Hart (2013), Robert Sacre (2012), Erroll Knight (2005), Mark Spink (2001) and Mike Nilson (2000) were WCC defensive players of the year.

    “Mike is probably the only thing comparable, but he didn’t have quite the versatility as J3,” Few said.

    Williams limited South Dakota State’s Mike Daum, the nation’s second-leading scorer, to 17 points, eight less than his average. Williams also played a key role in holding Bluiett, who averaged 25 points in three NCAA games, to 10.

    “I just tried to make life hard for him, just like the South Dakota State kid,” Williams said. “You can’t stop everything but if you make life hard for them, that’s even better.”

    At Gonzaga, Few's critics often cited his team's postseason struggles, although many exaggerate how many times he actually had a real chance to pursue a national title. Well, now he's in the Final Four, where his team is favored.
    So, now, if we don't win it all, they'll say he choked. So, might as well win it all.

    And if we win, they'll say our path was too easy...so it doesn't count as much as a North Carolina or Duke championship.

    Default Gonzaga Bulldog Madness on local channel KREM2 right now...

    Interesting interview with Ken Pomeroy about the Zags. He mentioned that his defensive statistics do take into account the strength of schedule, but Zags have been beating people by so many (especially in conference) that at some point his logarithms break - so it is hard to tell if they really are the best defense in the country. Either way, he said they are definitely one of the top teams.

    Maybe the mystery feature on Karnowski will be one of the canned pieces we see today. Fingers crossed.

    Good read, Zagdawg.

    Through it all, the Zags have remained remarkably down to the earth. Spokane is a big (OK, good-sized) city with a small town feel, full of some of the friendliest people you can imagine. Sometimes Few & Co. are comically laid back. In 2013, when Gonzaga finally ascended to the top of the Associated Press poll for the first time in program history, Few was unavailable for comment. He was busy fly-fishing.

    And yet, the haters still came out, talking all that nonsense about Gonzaga being in a weak conference (clearly those people do not ever watch Saint Mary’s play) and making snide comments about GU never getting to the Final Four (that they should have gone only once, according to seeds, doesn’t seem to matter). I’ve been convinced since December that this could finally be the Zags’ year, a belief that was reinforced after a gritty win over West “Press” Virginia in the Sweet 16.
