Pargo enjoying overseas adventure

Zip it: Gonzaga's Jeremy Pargo flies in for a dunk against the Akron Zips in the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament in Portland on March 19. During any game you can sense when a team or individual takes over and seizes control. There is an iconic moment that captures the game – and this slam put the seal on the Gonzaga victory. What I love about this photo is how it captures the essence of the game, and how  page designer Ralph Walter was able to play the Akron mascot's name   in the main headline. The photo and design made for a dramatic wrap-around package for the Sports section.  (Christopher Anderson / The Spokesman-Review)

We conclude the last of our five-part series on collegians from our area who are playing professionally overseas with former Zag Jeremy Pargo. He's played in Israel the last two years and he's headed back in about a month. Pargo was his customary candid self in a 30-minute phone interview.

Here's my feature on Pargo that will run in Sunday's S-R. We'll also have a list of former Zags, their whereabouts and their most recent stats in tomorrow's paper.

Meanwhile, the GU-Western Michigan game will be the annual Ronald McDonald House Charities Classic. Ticket info here.
