ZAGS, COLLEGE BASKETBALL
Gonzaga unveils the 2006-2007 Zag team tonight at the McCarthey Center with an exhibition game against Augustana College (S.D). Because Augustana is an NCAA Division II school, the game won't count on the Zags' overall record. The SportsLink will be there, with a game story on The S-R's web site after the game is over and commentary here.
There was some other Zag news in today's S-R, with John Blanchette writing his column on UW abandoning the series with Gonzaga after this year.
The thing you have to admire about John in his role as the S-R's lead sports columnist is he never pulls his punches. He's charged with telling you how he feels about something and, after you've read his column, you know where he stands. After you've read this piece, you'll know he thinks UW is making a mistake, a mistake the Zags shouldn't repeat with their EWU series.
Speaking of the Husky basketball program, coach Lorenzo Romar isn't sure yet about his player rotation. Only point guard Justin Dentmon and forward Jon Brockman are sure starters. My guess is, if he's healthy, freshman Spencer Hawes will be starting as well.
