Blanchette: Zags Show Up This Time

Game long over, a Gonzaga operative pushed a wheelchair through a ground-level corridor at the McCarthey Athletic Center and toward the court, where he encountered Randy Bennett – more resigned than cranky – walking off. “I hope that isn’t for me,” the Saint Mary’s coach cracked. Hey, there were stretches Thursday night in which medical conveyances seemed like a prudent precaution. In an atmosphere as electric as it’s been in The Kennel in a good, long spell, the best the West Coast can currently offer up to ESPN for its rivalry week – OK, maybe the second-best – played high-level chicken for the better part of 30 minutes. This time it was the Gaels who blinked – or perhaps balked/John Blanchette, SR. More here. (Dan Pelle SR photo: Gonzaga's Robert Sacre outrebounds St. Mary's Rob Jones Thursday)

Question: Will St. Mary's stumble between now and the end of the year, giving Gonzaga a chance to share another WCC title? Will Gonzaga with home games remaining against Loyola Marymount & BYU win out?
