Feels like it's been about eight weeks since I left the Pepsi Center in Denver following GU's loss to BYU in the NCAA Tournament. It's actually been nearly eight months and now the Bulldogs are 24 hours from opening the 2011-12 season when Eastern Washington visits the McCarthey Athletic Center.
Here's my short game preview that will run in Friday's S-R. For what it's worth, Gonzaga's game release lists projected starters as Stockton, Bell, Carter, Harris and Sacre. That would be my guess, but I would also guess there's going to be several starting lineups before Few and Co. settle on a first five and eventually a rotation.
The release also states that Guy Landry Edi played in the French Pro A League, which is the reason the NCAA ruled him ineligible for eight games, prior to enrolling at Gonzaga. The school is appealing the decision, but hasn't heard back from the NCAA.
