Few’s 25-year ride at GU

Gonzaga's season opener is just two days away, but the S-R got a head start on all the teams in our region with the College Basketball special section.

Several GU-related articles to link to: Mark Few is entering his 25th season at Gonzaga, the last 15 as head coach. Here's a look back and ahead with the Zags coach. Here's GU's roster, fast facts and five keys to success.

Gonzaga tickets have been the hottest ticket in town for years. Tom Clouse explains how those 6,000 tickets are gobbled up and how the waiting list works. Here's five things to know about GU tickets.

John Blanchette shares area coaches' ideas for improving the game.

GU roundup

Several GU items of interest. Bulldogs forward Kelly Olynyk scored in double figures twice this week for Canada at the FIBA Americas Championship in Argentina. Here's a link to Olynyk's stats throughout the tournament. He's fifth in scoring and third in rebounding for Canada, which is 2-5 in Group X standings and saw its Olympic hopes dashed by a loss to Panama.

Battle in Seattle pre-sale tickets for Spokane residents and members of the State Farm Battle in Seattle mailing list go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster outlets (three Fred Meyer locations in Spokane, Veradale). More here and at Gonzaga will face Arizona, which advanced to the Elite Eight last year and is 3-0 against the Bulldogs all time, at KeyArena.

UPDATE: CBS will televise the Battle in Seattle, which tips at 1 on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Santa Clara, which appeared to be positioned to challenge Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and BYU at the top of the WCC, lost senior forward Marc Trasolini to a torn ACL in an exhibition contest in his home province of B.C. More here and here.

Carter finds his way at Gonzaga

Back with a feature on junior guard Marquise Carter, who has been one of the primary reasons for Gonzaga's surge to a co-WCC title and conference championship. This will run in Tuesday's S-R, but here's a story link with more from Carter, his teammates and coach Mark Few on how the J.C. transfer turned around his season, and helped Gonzaga do the same.

Also, just received notice from Gonzaga's sports information department that GU has sold out its allotment of tickets for Thursday's game in Denver.

1,500 tickets sold for outdoor game

When I saw majority owner Brady Nelson at the first Shock practice Saturday, I asked him how many tickets had been sold for the outdoor game. The announcement for the game, set for July 9th at Albi Stadium, was Thursday and it was a quick turnaround for season-ticket holders, who had the first opportunity to purchase tickets Friday-Sunday.

Over a 1,000, Nelson said, adding that he was pleased considering season ticket-holders essentially only had 12-hour notice before tickets went on sale.

By Monday morning, that figure was 1,500. Reserve seats are close to being sold out. Tickets went on sale to the general public this morning at 10.

Game time, by the way, will be 5 p.m.
