Zags face Portland State tonight and we’ll be there


We’ll bring you full coverage of the Zags game tonight, but to tide you over until then, here’s a few things to read.

First off, you can peruse Steve Bergum’s preview of the game. Don’t forget to check Bergum’s blog for GU information.

Then you can tool around the country, with stories about the Bulldogs from every corner.

Do you remember whom the Zags opened the McCarthey Center against? We’ll, seeing as Portland State comes to town tonight, that should give you a hint. Then read this Oregonian story concerning the Vikings’ Scott Morrison and you’ll know for sure.

The Sporting News mid-major report makes the same point about GU that alluded to in an earlier post: The league they play in is mid-major; the program itself is not.

I’ve asked this before, but where do you think GU stands in the pantheon of college basketball? As I’ve said, I vote for a major program playing in a mid-major - but improving - league. Thanks to GU’s success, I see the WCC moving into Missouri Valley Conference territory soon, with one or two teams besides GU beating up teams around the country. Do you think that’s in the conference’s future?
