The paths of Gonzaga's Gary Bell Jr. and Washington State's DaVonte Lacy's have crossed numerous times before. They've been foes, teammates and roommates, and along the way they've become friends.
That friendship will take a couple hours off Thursday night when GU entertains WSU at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Here's a feature I put together on Bell and Lacy that run in Thursday's S-R.
Gonzaga and area D-I schools can begin practicing as early as today (Saturday in GU's case) so we put together a short preview for Friday's S-R.
Under a new NCAA rule, teams have 42 days before their season opener to conduct 30 practices. Teams can spread out practices more or they can stick to essentially the same schedule they've used for years. GU will experiment to determine the best approach but it seems, considering their strong starts in recent seasons, they might not want to mess with success too much.

Back with a slightly expanded article on Gary Bell Jr., who committed to Gonzaga on Monday. I wasn’t able to get in touch with Gary or his prep coach. If that changes, I’ll post their thoughts tomorrow.
Meanwhile, read on for the unedited article that will run in Tuesday’s S-R.
