The final home game for Gonzaga seniors Robert Sacre and Marquise Carter arrives Monday night when Longwood visits the MAC. The Lancers are a Division I independent from Farmville, Va. joining the Big South Conference next year.
I chatted with both seniors and coach Mark Few after the USD game Saturday and put together this article for Monday's S-R.
In case you missed it earlier, here's my day-after San Diego post.
Back with some notes, quotes and impressions from Gonzaga’s first practice.
OK, we’ll leave the impressions to senior center Rob Sacre. More below.
Back with a feature on junior guard Marquise Carter, who has been one of the primary reasons for Gonzaga's surge to a co-WCC title and conference championship. This will run in Tuesday's S-R, but here's a story link with more from Carter, his teammates and coach Mark Few on how the J.C. transfer turned around his season, and helped Gonzaga do the same.
Also, just received notice from Gonzaga's sports information department that GU has sold out its allotment of tickets for Thursday's game in Denver.
I'll be back in the morning with a day-after post.
Back with a bit more on Marquise Carter. You can read it below.
UPDATE: Here’s GU’s release on Carter’s signing with a couple of Mark Few quotes.

Wednesday was the first day of the spring signing period.
Carter, who didn’t return a phone message, helped Three Rivers to a runner-up finish at the NJCAA Tournament. He averaged 17.9 points, 5.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds.
“My thinking is once you give your word that’s it, but I don’t have control over him at this point,” Bess said. “At our banquet the other night he was going to Gonzaga, but I don’t know what’s going on now.”
