Pangos WCC Player of the Year, Zags Sweep Major WCC Awards

Senior guard Kevin Pangos was named the WCC Player of the Year as part of a Gonzaga sweep of the Player, Defender, Newcomer and Coach of the Year Awards announced today by the league office.

Gonzaga may have lost one-seed, but Zags still can be contender

  Lost: One No. 1 seed for the NCAA tournament. Last seen in a rowdy McCarthey Athletic Center, a.k.a. "The Kennel," around 9 p.m. PT on Saturday. This also happened to be the exact same moment the calendar turned to March on the East Coast, which authorities believe was not a coincidence. The one-seed formerly looked like a Gonzaga Bulldog, blue and white and with a spiky red dog...

BYU basketball: Cougs beat a top-3 team for first time since 1981

BYU coach Dave Rose wasn’t biting. I asked the 10-year head coach — who just signed a new five-year deal — where Saturday night’s 73-70 win over No. 2/3 Gonzaga at the Kennel ranks on his coaching wins list shortly after Kyle Wiltjer’s half court shot nearly went in. “That’s a good one,” was all Rose would say. It was BYU’s first win against an opponent ranked...

So What If Gonzaga Gets a One Seed?

With Selection Sunday closing in on us, the college basketball community confronts a discussion it doesn’t get in December or early January: seeding. This is when media, fans and bracketologists tell us where each team should be ranked, against whom, and in what part of the country. Truly a fun time of the year. Despite the entertainment that comes with people taking educated...

Former Kentucky Star Kyle Wiltjer Throws Up “3 Goggles” With Wildcats Fan After Gonzaga’s Win

Gonzaga junior Kyle Wiltjer may no longer officially be a part of Kentucky’s basketball program, but it’s clear that he still roots for the Wildcats when he’s not on the court. Wiltjer, who transferred from UK after the 2012-2013 season but still has a fantastic relationship with fans, ran into a young Wildcats supporter after his team’s 10-point victory over Saint Mary...

Gonzaga poised for deep run in NCAA tournament

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY SportsMuch like some obscure national holiday that can be relied upon as an annual escape from reality, college basketball fans in the Pacific Northwest have been able to depend upon Gonzaga’s domination of the West Coast Conference since the turn of the century. With a near-flawless record of 24-1 overall and 12-0 in the conference following last Saturday’s...

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...

WATCH: Kyle Wiltjer is a shooting machine

Kyle Wiltjer began his collegiate basketball career at Kentucky before transferring to Gonzaga last year and redshirting for a season. A promising big man who averaged 10.2 points per game during the 2012-2013 season, it appears Wiltjer has spent a lot of time working on his outside shooting while he has been held out of...Read More

Standout Euro Domantas Sabonis signs with Gonzaga

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. ...

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...
