After a 10-year hiatus, Gonzaga and Washington will renew their men’s basketball rivalry in the 2016-17 season, the schools announced Monday. The Zags and Huskies are expected to meet four straight seasons, alternating between their respective home courts. No decision has been made on the site of the first game. “I’ve been telling people we were going to work it out,” Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth said. “Mark (Few, Gonzaga coach) and Lorenzo (Romar, Washington coach) were together at USA Basketball this weekend and had a chance to visit and got it agreed upon.” GU and UW have met 43 times with the Huskies holding a 29-14 edge/Jim Meehan, SR.

Question: Gonzaga basketball is one of the ways I spend my evenings on Thursday and Saturday during the winter. How about you?
