GONZAGA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Defining the Season: Kevin Pangos

This season’s Gonzaga Bulldogs bring back Gary Bell Jr. and Przemek Karnowski from last year’s team, and adds one of the country’s strongest transfer classes in Kyle Wiltjer, Byron Wesley, and Eric McClellan. As a result this squad has arguably received more preseason hype than any of head coach Mark Few’s teams. The key to whether or not they live up to these expectations...

Is this the year Gonzaga finally advances beyond the Sweet 16?

At what point does Cinderella become powerful and popular enough to stop being an underdog story? For Gonzaga, the national narrative painting the program as college basketball's prototypical dark horse started feeling like a disservice years ago. For 15 seasons, Mark Few has been the 'Zags head coach and for 15 seasons he's made the NCAA Tournament. Look closer and it...

CBS’ Andrew Catalon apologizes after “Hack-a-Polack” Comment of Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski

I’m sure CBS announcer Andrew Catalon wishes he could take back his comment about Gonzaga’s center Przemek Karnowski. 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...

Such a talented athlete. [.GIFDSPORTS] The post Joe Jackson comes up with ridiculous block on Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski appeared first on Diehardsport.
