Day after Santa Clara

Back with the day-after post from Gonzaga’s 88-51 trampling of Santa Clara.

Same drill as always. First, the links: S-R gamer, John Blanchette’s column on GU’s decade of WCC rule, photos, A.P., WCC recaps can be found here, and here’s an Oregonian article on San Francisco, GU’s opponent Saturday, losing at Portland (Dior Lowhorn scores seven points in the first three minutes, then shutout the rest of the way?) While we’re at it, here’s an S-I article on foreign players making an impact at U.S. schools (much of it centers on GU’s Elias Harris).

Day after Wake Forest

Good Sunday morning. Had my morning scrap with the computer (explorer can’t connect to this web site), but I can finally post the day-after offering from Wake Forest’s 77-75 win over Gonzaga.

Lots more on Elias Harris, Kong, etc. below, but first the links. Here’s my game story, John Blanchette was spot-on with Harris’ ejection in his column, the A.P. gamer, the Winston Salem-Journal article, and S-R game photos.

Day-after San Diego

Back with the day-after post following Gonzaga’s 58-47 road win over San Diego on Saturday. Much more below.

(Programming notes: I’m working on an article on the Zags’ five seniors as they await their final home game Tuesday at the McCarthey Athletic Center. I’m hoping to post it later tonight. The WCC awards and all-league team will be released Monday.)


Day after San Francisco

I’ve traveled home, had the requisite number of computer issues, so I’ll take another stab at getting this post off the ground. Lots of stuff to get to after Gonzaga’s 78-73 win over San Francisco. Read on for the day-after USF post.


Day after Portland

These 8 p.m. starts aren’t real conducive to gathering post-game notes and quotes, but we did get about 10 minutes of interview time following Gonzaga’s 93-78 win over Portland on Thursday in an entertaining men’s basketball game.

Here are links to the Oregonian’s Ryan White and Jim Beseda, and the Portland Tribune’s gamer and column.  

Read on my day after post.


Day after San Diego

It was apparent from the outset this one was going to lack style points. That was never more evident than seeing the scoreboard read Gonzaga 16, San Diego 9 — with 4:15 left in the first half.

Still, Gonzaga’s 64-47 victory showed the Zags can successfully adjust to the various styles and tempos they’ve seen from opponents. More below in my day-after post.


Day after Saint Mary’s

Let’s begin the day-after Saint Mary’s post in-house with John Blanchette’s column, which neatly puts Gonzaga’s 69-62 victory over the Gaels into perspective, and the S-R gamer. Here are additional links from the Contra Costa TimesSeattle Times and A.P.

Here’s a link to S-R photos of the game.

Day after Portland State

Where to begin the day after Portland State post? By giving proper credit to the visiting Vikings, who overcame travel issues and were the hungrier team in knocking off No. 7 Gonzaga 77-70 on Tuesday at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Portland State hopped off a charter bus, which arrived in Spokane about 3 hours and 30 minutes before tip off, and managed to play with more energy, effort and intensity than the Zags, who flew back on their charter plane from Seattle on Saturday night after losing to UConn in overtime.

Much more below.
