The Gonzaga Bulldogs notched easily one of the most intriguing signings during college basketball’s early signing period on Thursday, as 6′-10″ Domantas Sabonis, who is currently playing for a professional team in Spain, signed a letter of intent for Gonzaga. Sabonis is the son of long-time Portland Trail Blazers center Arvydas Sabonis, and still only 17 years old. ...

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...
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...

Joe Jackson is 6’1”. Przemek Karnowski is 7’1”. Who ever said that size matters?! I hope that Jackson makes it to the NBA next year so that we can see him participate in the Dunk Competition one day. Such a talented athlete. [.GIFDSPORTS] The post Joe Jackson comes up with ridiculous block on Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski appeared first on Diehardsport.

If you’ve been watching college basketball at all this season, then you’ve heard of Kelly Olynyk. He’s the best player on the #1 team in the country, the Gonzaga Bulldogs, and he’s having an insane season where he’s averaging over 17 points per game on 65.5% shooting.
Tonight against St. Mary’s, Olynyk was again putting on a clinic, including this vicious dunk on St....
Kelly Olynyk had 26 points and nine rebounds and Elias Harris added 17 points and 13 rebounds to carry No. 5 Gonzaga past pesky San Francisco 71-61 on Saturday, snapping a three-year losing streak at War Memorial Gymnasium.
After his sophomore season 7-foot center Kelly Olynyk faced a major decision. Should he stay at Gonzaga where he wasn’t earning many minutes or should he transfer? The coaches – who had to re-recruit him – pointed out that he’d half to sit out a year if he transferred, so why not sit out at Gonzaga?
So that’s what he did. He took a rare mid-career redshirt and reinvented...
