    Default Congrats to Petrusev -- All American

    Sporting News' 2019-20 college basketball All-Americans

    Third-team All-Americans
    Filip Petrusev, C, Gonzaga
    Key stats: 17.5 ppg, 7.9 rpg, .562 field goal percentage
    Defining game: 27 points, six rebounds, 8-of-12 shooting in 86-76 victory over Saint Mary’s

    Brandon Clarke’s departure for the NBA after last season created the opportunity for Petrusev to play more than last year’s 11 minutes per game. Teammate Killian Tillie’s persistent injuries created the need for Petrusev to do more. He was ready for both. Petrusev scored in double figures 10 times last year despite understandably limited opportunities. Those paying close attention figured he might be capable of more. He only missed that mark twice this season. Defenses found it so hard to deal with him that they sent him to the line for 238 free throws. He only converted at a .655 clip, showing there’s still room for improvement.

    Wow, how far we have come. We have an all-american center and we have people wanting him to leave, because we have better players waiting in the wings. That is just awsome.

    That's not being "realistic" or "not drinking the kool-aid." That's just being a jerk. Absolutely uncalled-for.

    It's sad that some folks on the board are such downers. Snarky comments get old.

    Led the Zags in what was supposed to be a transition year to the #1/#2 team in the country and a #1 seed in the dance -- the kid earned it.

    Thrilled for Filip. He has worked really hard. Hope it is the first of many this award season for him and the rest of the Zags

    Can anybody remind me how the All-America awards stack up? In this case it is Sporting News. But other organizations also name All-America teams. Is the AP All-America considered more prestigious?

    Those of you that watch the "Mark Few Show" see that shot in the GU locker room of a sign that lists the Gonzaga "All Americans". Does this mean Filip goes up on that board or is that a list of AP All Americans?
