Back with my day-after post following Gonzaga’s 69-68 win over
Read on for more.
Good morning. I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year's celebration. The Zags' celebration of their 73-52 win over Oklahoma State probably didn't last too long. They were on a bus this morning at 6:50 for their charter flight across the country and a date with Wake Forest on Sunday morning.
One note before I get to the day-after post. Freshman guard Keegan Hyland has left the program, coach Mark Few confirmed. Hyland has requested his release to at least a couple of schools, and I'm guessing those are located back East. Hyland is from Portland, Maine.
Hyland has rarely practiced in the first three months of the season. He had a knee problem early in fall camp and was later sidelined by a concussion. He didn't appear in a game. It was probably going to be a difficult task for a healthy Hyland to crack into the rotation with GU's options at guard/wing (Gray, Goodson, Carter, Stockton, Arop, Hart, Keita, Monninghoff, etc.) and with a guard-heavy 2011 class.
Onward. The links: My game story, John Blanchette's column (I couldn't find S-R photo gallery, other than this shot of Sacre and Arop blocking a shot), and game recaps in the Daily Oklahoman and Tulsa World..
