Streak in jeopardy this weekend for Gonzaga


The home winning streak (49 games) will be on the line again this weekend, with Gonzaga hosting Saint Mary’s, who already owns a win over GU, and Santa Clara, tied with the Zags for first in the West Coast Conference.

The ball will be in Jeremy Pargo’s hands much of the time, with GU counting on the sophomore to make the correct decisions. But he didn’t show the best decision-making process by agreeing to sit with Steve Bergum for a Q and A (just kidding).

Besides the interview with Pargo, Steve also has the WCC notebook and a look at the week ahead (third school). There is also more on Steve’s blog.

• In an interesting column, San Jose’s Jon Wilner blames “the Gonzaga Syndrome,” for Dick Davey’s ouster at Santa Clara. The interesting thing about the column: All the anonymous ripping of GU’s academic standards and basketball program. It’s worth the read all the way to the end.

• The win over Gonzaga is a pretty big deal at Loyola (now that’s an understatement).

• I don’t know when this ran in the Seattle Times (I couldn’t find it on the website) but here is a Bud Withers’ interview with Dan Monson that ran in the San Jose Mercury News.
