10 Morrison Lane: Former NBA player Adam Morrison is apparently a doomsday prepper

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...

Does Adam Morrison have an apocalypse bunker?

Former Gonzaga basketball star Adam Morrison is one of the most recognizable faces in college basketball history. He is one of the main reasons why they became an NCAA Tournament darling during the early 2000s and now he is supposedly preparing for the end of the world.

Coach Mark Few wants Gonzaga to keep chip on its shoulder

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Gonzaga's surprising run to the Sweet 16 was accomplished because the Bulldogs have been playing in recent weeks with a chip on their shoulder and largely out of the national spotlight, coach Mark Few said. Now Few fears all the renewed attention, with praise in the media and on social networks, might become a distraction. ''We don't want them patted on the...

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are Championship Contenders

The Gonzaga Bulldogs did not have a strong regular season, and were considered lucky by many to get into the tournament.  As a matter of fact, if the Bulldogs had not defeated the top-seeded Saint Mary’s College Gaels in the West Coast Conference tournament, we would likely not be talking about them at all. However as head coach Mark Few exemplified, a very important factor in...

Wiltjer helps deliver Gonzaga back to Sweet 16

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Fourth grade was when it started for Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer. That jumper with the smooth release off his hand that has helped lead Gonzaga back to a familiar place in the NCAA Tournament can be traced back to when Wiltjer was 10 years old. ''Fourth, fifth, sixth grade, all I could do was just bomb 30 (footers),'' Wiltjer said earlier this season. ''I was a gunner...

Mark Few has come full circle with Gonzaga

Mark Few has always been a good coach at Gonzaga, but at a program which clearly spent a lot to build itself into a national, name-brand operation, good isn’t necessarily good enough. It’s a statement which not only sounds harsh; it is harsh.  The key question: Is such a statement out of touch with expectations and cultural realities — at Gonzaga in particular, but also at...

Gonzaga vs. Syracuse – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

Twitter/@Cuse_MBB When people began filling out their 2016 NCAA Tournament brackets, it’s unlikely that many of them penciled in a match-up between these two double-digit seeds in the Sweet 16. Tenth-seeded Syracuse is one of six ACC teams to make it to the round of 16, a record for one conference. The Orange advanced to Chicago by thumping 10th-seeded Dayton in round one and...

Gonzaga crushes Utah: The “8-seed non-upset” is quite common these days

When the Utah Utes got absolutely annihilated by the Gonzaga Bulldogs on Saturday night, it became official: At least one double-digit seed will make the Elite Eight this year. What also became apparent: America needs to learn a new term at the NCAA tournament — call it a piece of tournament terminology, or “tournamology.” That term, ladies and gentlemen, is this: the “eight...

Gonzaga's Sabonis gets best of Utah's Poeltl

Jakob Poeltl will get the extra cushion soon if he declares for the NBA draft, as many expect. If he does, his college career and its five-foul limit came screeching...
