Football ruled the day, but not on my computer. Here's a rundown of tonight's post:

Gonzaga's defense, stellar thus far, faces its toughest challenge of the young season against Davidson on Sunday. The teams staged two memorable games in recent years. The most memorable was Stephen Curry draining eight 3-pointers and scoring 40 points, 30 in the second half, as the Wildcats edged Gonzaga 82-76 in Raleigh in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Two years ago in the Battle in Seattle, Elias Harris scored 27 points, Robert Sacre 23 and Demetri Goodson 22 as GU rolled 103-91. The Zags made 41 of 54 free throws, a school-record for attempts.

Also, I was able to catch up with ex-Zags Austin Daye and Jeremy Pargo earlier this week and put together an update on their NBA careers. Per usual, both were generous with their time. It's strange to see Pargo (pictured above) wearing No. 8. Kyrie Irving wears No. 2 and Luke Walton has No. 4 so Pargo settled on No. 8.
