Among the numerous mileposts in Gonzaga’s 2017 season was one Saturday that went largely unnoticed.
Gonzaga sealed its third straight Sweet 16, which hasn’t happened since the 1999 squad launched the Zags onto the national stage and the ensuing two teams kept them there.
“I was like in shock after the (Northwestern) game for a couple minutes,” said senior guard Jordan Mathews, a grad transfer from Cal whose only NCAA experience came in a first-round loss last season. “I’ve never been in the Sweet 16. I’ve never been in the second round. Going to the Sweet 16 is going to be another level. My dad told me it’s special so we’ll see”/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
