Who is Domantas Sabonis?

Can the Gonzaga big man crack the lottery in on June 24? 30 years ago, the Portland Trail Blazers used the last pick of the first round on a center that could transcend the game of basketball in the Pacific Northwest. His name? Arvydas Sabonis. Of course it would take 10 years for ‘Sabas’ to make his way to the NBA, where he made he debut at age 31 in Portland. Other than...

Gonzaga Just Keeps Proving It Never Should Have Been An 11-Seed

Mark Few’s Gonzaga hasn’t been a proper Cinderella for more than a decade now, having outgrown the designation some time ago. This season’s squad, however, entered the 2016 NCAA Tournament in an unfamiliar position — an 11-seed. Matched up with the streaking 6-seed Seton Hall, which had just won the Big East Tournament, Gonzaga was predicted by many to be bounced in the first...

On a recent episode of the Pardon My Take Podcast, Gonzaga star Kyle Wiltjer was asked whether he wanted to be compared to the first major Zags star player Adam Morrison, or “the Poor Man’s Christian Laettner”. He said no, ostensibly because crying on the court after choking in the Sweet 16 is bad enough before becoming an NBA bust. But Wiltjer had another far more interesting...
