A pair of Zags stories

A couple of GU stories to link to. Both will run in tomorrow's S-R.

The first: Gonzaga might want to win its last two WCC games to remove most of the guesswork in regards to titles, tournament seeding, etc. That's because the Bulldogs are on the losing side of most tiebreakers with Saint Mary's or San Francisco. If GU wins two, the worst it can finish is co-champions and second seed in the WCC Tournament. More here.

The second is an update on Gonzaga's incoming recruiting class, which is putting up some impressive stats as the prep season winds down. Notes that didn't make the final version: Ryan Spangler is averaging 4.5 assists per game and he's had 30-rebound games this season. Gary Bell broke Renado Parker's school record for scoring at Kentridge High. Parker went on to star at NIC, signed with Idaho and has since tranferred to Portland State, where he's sitting out.
