GU and UNC have similiarities


It’s a mutual admiration society.

Gonzaga’s Mark Few says his program follows the lead set by Roy Williams at Kansas and now at North Carolina. Roy Williams loves Gonzaga, as this story from deep down Tobacco Road (from the Durham Herald-Sun) shows.

Steve Bergum has more on his blog. And don’t forget to check back here before the game and after for the commentary and a summary of the action right afterward.

From the Raleigh-Durham News and Observer, Williams says he still trying to figure out his player rotation for this year. Right now it’s “a seat of the pants thing,” according to Williams.

In the Charlotte Observer, there’s a pregame graphic. One note in the graphic: GU is 7-1 against Atlantic Coast Conference teams. I know they lost to Maryland in the NCAA Tournament, so the Zags must have won every other game with ACC schools.

Here is the ESPN preview of the game. The network will be televising the game tonight (6; ESPN2).

This blog has a surprisingly deep scouting report on the game.

And finally, West Coast college hoop expert Frank Burlison of the Long Beach Independent Telegram on the game.
