Twitter-verse kind, cruel to Zags

Athletes deal with something that athletes a decade ago didn't have to: Twitter. It's a barstool for fans, but the chatter there often reaches the athletes they're praising or ripping.

Gonzaga isn't immune to those tweets, so we checked in with 4-5 players to find out how they handle Twitter in a feature that ran on today's S-R Four Corners page. Here's a glance at the GU-Pepperdine game tonight. And there's a GU-related note in the Four Corners notebook.

—The coaching staff from USA Basketball's gold-medal winning U19 team last summer will return to lead the 2013 team, including Gonzaga coach Mark Few. He'll assist Florida's Billy Donovan. VCU's Shaka Smart also will assist Donovan.
