BULLDOGS, EAGLES, VANDALS, PIRATES UPDATED 11 A.M.
You can read my take on Gonzaga’s game Saturday with Memphis and what it means to the Zags’ postseason chances here, but there was a lot more on GU’s game in today’s S-R – and around the nation.
There is more on Steve’s Gonzaga blog, including more comments from the players.
Eastern traveled to Southern California and, despite the best efforts of the always vocal and extremely underrated UCSB crowd, pulled out a 71-70 win in the made-by-ESPN BracketBuster game.
You can find more Eagle news on Dave Trimmer’s blog.
The Idaho Vandals couldn’t bust through with a win in their BracketBuster game, losing to a UC Riverside team that hadn’t won a road game yet this year.
For more on the loss and other Vandal news, check Jim Meehan’s blog.
UPDATE: Though Lewis and Clark defeated George Fox 75-63 Saturday to tie Whitworth atop the Northwest Conference’s mens’ basketball standings, according to the press release linked above, the Pirates have the tiebreaker advantage over LC. So it looks like Whitworth will play the winner of Wednesday’s LC vs. Puget Sound game in Spokane on Friday.
