Zag seniors go out in style

Gonzaga wrapped up an unbeaten home season, clinched at least a share of the WCC title and sent four seniors out in style in their last appearance at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Quite a night inside the MAC as Kelly Olynyk showed up to support his former teammates, Sam Dower Jr. had 25 points and 15 rebounds and walk-on senior Brian Bhaskar drained a 3-pointer in the closing seconds that prompted the loudest ovation of the night.

More below in my unedited game story from Gonzaga's 86-67 win over Loyola Marymount. I'll have a day-after post in the morning.


Day after Longwood

The Bulldogs accomplished pretty much all of their objectives last night, pummeling Longwood 92-60, distributing playing time to everyone on the roster and celebrating a no-stress sendoff for seniors Robert Sacre and Marquise Carter.

Zags send seniors out in style

Gonzaga got contributions from its entire roster in a 92-60 rout of Longwood on Senior Night on Monday at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Marquise Carter had 13 points and five assists and Robert Sacre added five points and six rebounds as Gonzaga improved to 24-5 heading into the WCC Tournament.

My unedited game story is below. I'll have a day-after post in the morning.

Back with the game story from Gonzaga's 96-49 rout of Cal State Bakersfield on Senior Night. An unedited version is below.

Check back tomorrow for a day-after post and the release of the All-WCC teams and awards.

Gray in class by himself

Steven Gray came to Gonzaga with a highly regarded recruiting class that included Austin Daye, Robert Sacre and Ira Brown. Daye departed after two seasons for the NBA, Sacre redshirted because of a foot injury in 2009 and Brown finished up two years ago.

That leaves Gray as GU's only senior on Senior Night, which will take place Monday when Cal State Bakersfield visits the McCarthey Athletic Center.

I visited with Gray for a few minutes following Saturday's win in San Diego and put together this article that will run in Monday's S-R.

Trio await GU Senior Night

Back with the final post of the day (I think), and this one is about Gonzaga’s three seniors, who will play in their last game at the McCarthey Athletic Center tomorrow.

Read on below for an unedited article that will run in Tuesday’s S-R.

Also, a quick note from today’s WCC coaches’ conference call. Portland’s Eric Reveno said senior guard Nik Raivio (strained Achilles’) won’t play in the WCC Tournament.

“It’s just taking it’s time (to heal),” Reveno said of Raivio, younger brother of ex-Zag Derek Raivio. “He’s working really hard. My heart goes out to him. As a senior you keep thinking this is the week he turns the corner.”

Reveno said it’s possible Raivio could play if Portland advances to a post-season tournament.
