There were a ton of top notch college basketball games to choose from for this weekly column. I think I made the right choice in the end. The Big 10-ACC Challenge is a great event, even if it’s sponsored by Dick’s Sporting Goods. We get some classic early season match ups and I watched the first half of Louisville-Ohio State (and I was surprised...

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...
There are a lot of high hopes for Gonzaga basketball this coming season. It is one of the first seasons in some time where Gonzaga has had a really impressive recruiting class, and a challenging schedule where all of the players can show their skills. All Zag fans should start getting ready for the season, because this could be the best one the Zags have ever had.
Gonzaga basketball is looking to have a fantastic 2014-2015 season. They recruited well, scheduled well, and kept existing players on track. This upcoming season shows promise for the Zags, and they are already predicted to be a Top 25 team.
Przemek Karnowski, Kevin Pangos, and Kyle Wiltjer will hopefully be part of the success that is expected to come from Gonzaga. These three...
Sporting News tabbed Cliff Alexander as the No. 3 center in the upcoming 2014-15 season.
Here’s what they had to say:
6-9, 240 pounds
If you look up “power forward” in the dictionary, the picture you’ll see might look like Alexander. He has the ideal body and temperament for the position.
So it may surprise you to see Alexander listed here, but with Joel Embiid gone...

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. However, he found his name in the headlines for the wrong reasons after his first day calling the tournament...
SAN DIEGO -- Junior guard T.J. McConnell said Saturday that Gonzaga, Arizona's third-round opponent, may be the best team the Wildcats will have faced this year. Hyperbole, maybe, but right now, Gonzaga is the only thing that matter to Arizona.
The Bulldogs have a crafty guard in David Stockton, a very good shooter in Kevin Pangos, a strong forward in Sam Dower and a 7-foot-1 center...
After Oklahoma State on Friday continued to foul Gonzaga’s center and Poland native Przemek Karnowski, CBS announcer Andrew Catalon called it a “Hack-a-Polack.” Catalon issued an apology later on.
CBS announcer Andrew Catalon wants to 'sincerely apologize for my poor choice of words and insensitive remark during the Gonzaga-Oklahoma St game.' Catalon described fouling Przemek Karnowski as “Hack-a-Polack” and later apologized on the air. [Awful Announcing]Up next? A line of 'How does a Polish guy blow a layup?' joke books.Mr. @AndrewCatalon has just apologized in my person...
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...
SAN DIEGO (AP) A CBS announcer has apologized to a Polish-born Gonzaga player for using a derogatory term while describing the defense Oklahoma State was using against Przemek Karnowski.
CBS announcer Andrew Catalon apologized twice during the ending of the Gonzaga-Oklahoma State game for referring to the Cowboys’ strategy of fouling a Zags player as a “Hack-a-Polack” plan. The Cowboys were fouling Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski (pictured) late in the game to try and close the 10-point margin. In an off-the-cuff remark, Catalon called it […]
Andrew Catalon is one of the top young broadcasters in the industry who is calling his first NCAA Tournament, but this is a poor choice of words he would desperately like to have back. In the closing minutes of Oklahoma State-Gonzaga, the Cowboys fouled Przemek Karnowski, who is from Poland. Catalon described it as “Hack-a-Polack” and later apologized on the air. Yikes.

As the weeks go on and I find that I've written about almost all of the major teams (with the obvious exception of Florida), I have to dig a bit deeper to find good match ups to write about. Saturday's key game was Virginia beating Syracuse, which wasn't a big surprise. I watched the game and what surprised me a bit was the looseness of the Orange zone, but that tends to happen on...
