Andrew Catalon announced his first NCAA Tournament for CBS this weekend. Also known as the voice of curling during NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics, Catalon has been named by this site and many other media observers as one of the top young announcers in the industry.

What in the world is Marcus Smart doing here? Did he forget he was in a basket ball game? Is this some sort of failed ballet move? The man has a reputation for flopping, but can you really call this a flop? Whatever it was, it ended getting him a foul after he hit Gonzaga's Gary Bell Jr. during his crazy follow through.I'm not sure what's funnier though--the fact that...

With Gonzaga up and Oklahoma State resorting to fouling, Karnowski, a Polish native and 50% free-throw shooter, Catalon dropped the comment that OK State was going for the “Hack-a-Polack” strategy. To make matters worse, his color-commenting partner, Mike...

Phil Forte is looking forward to Friday's game against Gonzaga and senior guard David Stockton, the son of NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton.
Today, all is sunny in the Gonzaga constellation. The Zags are in their accustomed spot in the NCAA tournament, about to play Oklahoma State on Friday for the right to keep suiting up in San Diego.

As the team bus idled last week outside...

Having a famous basketball player for a dad has to be kind of cool, but for one thing--expectations. For Gonzaga senior David Stockton the expectations are pretty high. His dad is former Utah Jazz great John Stockton.

When BYU guard Anson Winder drove to the basket and attempted a layup, he was denied with authority by the 5’11″ Stockton.
