Gonzaga roundup

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.

Day after Davidson

Good late morning after a late-night flight home from Seattle. Back with the day after Davidson post, following GU’s the-future-looks-bright 103-91 win at the Battle in Seattle. Like the announced attendance of 13,176 (down from recent years), there were fewer media members present at the Battle, but we’ll tell you what they had to say about the game, too.

Same drill as always — links up here, more details below.

Looks like Gonzaga-Davidson battling in Seattle

Gonzaga will face Davidson in the 7th annual Battle in Seattle this December, according to the Battle in Seattle Web site. The teams met two years ago in the NCAA Tournament when Stephen Curry poured in 40 points in a Davidson victory.
