GU notes: Harris, Bouldin

Media day today at GU and I put together a notebook that will run in Tuesday's S-R and gathered some info for Thursday's Four Corners page. Here's a link to the notebook.

The first note is on Elias Harris (pictured above), whose stats this season are down in comparison to his freshman season.

I also asked coach Mark Few about Matt Bouldin's suspension. Bouldin, who is playing for a professional team in Greece, apparently tested positive for a banned substance but I haven't seen it identified anywhere from a reputable source. I've heard that Bouldin could be facing a two-year ban, but nothing on an official basis.

And finally, Matt Santangelo, Casey Calvary and David Pendergraft were back in uniform today for a couple of hours.

Bouldin bound for Greece

Former Gonzaga guard Matt Bouldin has signed with Iraklis Thessaloniki, an A-1 (top pro division) team in Greece.

“This is a great opportunity, to be playing in one of the best leagues in Europe,” said Stu Lash, Bouldin’s agent.

Bouldin earned three first-team All-WCC honors and was the conference’s player of the year as a senior.

Bouldin, who was not selected in the NBA Draft, played for the Chicago Bulls summer league team, but was slowed by a nagging injury that stretched back into his senior season at GU. After summer league ended in mid July, Bouldin had surgery to remove bone spurs.

Bouldin joining Bulls summer league team

Back with a short article on Matt Bouldin, who has agreed to join the Chicago Bulls summer league team, according to his agent Stu Lash.

Here’s the link.

Bouldin on workout trail

Former Zag guard Matt Bouldin worked out for Milwaukee on Wednesday after previous stops at Minnesota and Washington. He’s scheduled to visit Chicago on Friday. More on Bouldin here.

Bouldin honored, Turiaf graduating

A couple of items of interest tonight. Matt Bouldin was among the honorees at the Bulldog Club Senior Athletes Social on Thursday night. More on those awards here.

And ex-Zag Ronny Turiaf will be among 48 Zags student-athletes (including Bouldin, Will Foster and Chris Pontarolo-Maag) who will walk during commencement ceremonies on Sunday at the Arena. More here.

Pains of the game

Good early evening. A couple of things to post. Here’s your first look at a notebook that will run in Wednesday’s S-R dealing with several key Zags who have played through nagging ailments this season. Nobody is immune to the aches and pains that come with playing heavy minutes, but players adapt and learn how to not only play, but play effectively.That’s below.

The worst kept secret in Eugene became official: Oregon fired coach Ernie Kent on Tuesday. There will almost certainly be speculation about Gonzaga’s Mark Few, an Oregon alum. The Ducks figure to have a lot to offer — a respected conference, money and a new arena — but I’m not convinced Few would leave to take over a program that finished ninth in the Pac-10.

Oregon made overtures to Few last year, but he seems quite content at GU.

UPDATE: Here’s another edition of the Gonzaga Roundtable on KGA 1510 with host Toby Howell. I joined Richard Fox and Max from Tuesday for the 40-minute show on GU basketball.

More on Bouldin, WCC awards

As promised, here’s an expanded version of the All-WCC awards and the major individual awards that were announced Monday afternoon. One correction to the previous post: Elias Harris was newcomer of the year (not freshman).

Read on for an unedited article.

Also, Gonzaga stayed at No. 18 in the A.P. rankings and moved up one spot to No. 14 in ESPN/USA Today. More here.

Harris sore, but expects to play

Media day this afternoon and I checked on Elias Harris and Matt Bouldin, both of whom took falls on separate plays in the second half of the San Diego game. Harris said he’s sore, but anticipates playing Thursday. Bouldin said his right hand was puffy on Monday, but was feeling better on Tuesday. 

Earlier in the day, I spoke to ex-Bulldog Andy Poling, who confirmed that he’ll be attending Seattle Pacific University (see previous post).

I put the injury update and Poling’s decision together for a short notebook that will run in Wednesday’s S-R. Read on for the unedited version below.

Bouldin on WCC Live

Media day this afternoon and I’ve been hearing pretty strongly that Bouldin, who sat out Saturday’s win over Davidson, will play against Duke on Saturday. Bouldin was still feeling the effects from a head-to-head collsion last Wednesday and sat out the Battle in Seattle. I’ll check in with Bouldin and have some other notes posted later tonight.

Bouldin won’t play vs. Davidson

A quick update from the Battle in Seattle: Matt Bouldin is dressed in street clothes and won’t play today.

I spoke briefly with Bouldin as he was watching his teammates warm up at KeyArena. He said he was still experiencing some symptoms from Wednesday’s head-to-head collision with an Augustana player.



Bouldin expected to play vs. Davidson

Senior guard Matt Bouldin, who left Wednesday’s game against Augustana after a collision a Vikings player, is expected to play vs. Davidson in the Battle in Seatle on Saturday, according to a GU release.

Bouldin left the game with nearly seven minutes left in the first half and didn’t return. Bouldin said he didn’t remember the play and he thought he had suffered a concussion.

More here.

Day after Augustana

Back with the day after post from Gonzaga’s 79-40 rout of Augustana.

A few links here — S-R gamer that was posted last night, Colin Mulvany’s photos and a recap from the Quad-City Times — and the rest of the post below.

GU rolls, Bouldin ‘fuzzy’ from collision
