    Default Mark Few, GU basketball and their rise to excellence

    If this was previously posted I missed it and I apologize for reposting! If it has not been previously posted take a few minutes between current games, or perhaps at a halftime. It is a good read:

    Thanks for posting this... I was just coming to do that. Great recap of the Few era.

    Oksy, I'm ready to lace them up.

    I'm convinced they'll come out fighting this year.

    Thx for posting. Many games get washed away in the memories fade.

    I was going to say, this is a fantastic article for a new co-worker of mine, for example, who wasn't aware of the Gonzaga story and how they went from being a low major to a mid major to a power team within college basketball, and just Mark Few's overall story as a head coach. This is a great overview. Nothing that diehards don't know, but great reading for newbies.

    That was great, but this article has a glaring blemish. They state our first #1 seed was 2017.

    This is not correct as we did it in 2013. Otherwise good article

    Yep, it'll be our 3rd #1 seed if we get one this year.

    Couldn't finish it. . .too many errors, terrible writing. Littered with one trite phrase after another. Writer is a hack. Not worth the time to read it.

    It took me more than one halftime, including switching channels and checking other games, Reno-LOL!
