Gonzaga Basketball: replacing Sam Dower and David Stockton

Gonzaga Basketball ended on a bitter note this past season, and sadly two of the Zags’ most useful players have graduated and moved on. Both David Stockton and Sam Dower proved to be assets for the Gonzaga squad when they joined the team back in 2010. By graduating, they are leaving a gap in where they shined, and fans can only hope that players like Josh Perkins, Domantas Sabonis...

Arizona notes: Is Gonzaga best opponent of season?

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.

Fantasy College Basketball Game of the Week: Gonzaga at St. Mary's

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...
