GU lets the good times roll

I put together a follow-up on Gonzaga’s two tournament wins in the front seat of the company Impala and finished it up at home this afternoon.

Read on for the unedited version of the article that will run in Monday’s S-R. (By the way, I sometimes forget to post our photo slide shows from games, but do yourself a favor and look at Chris Anderson’s work here.)

 

Goodson hits game-winner for GU

Gonzaga blew a nine-point lead in the final 2:15, but freshman guard Demetri Goodson hit a running bank shot from 8 feet with 0.9 seconds left  to give the Bulldogs a thrilling 83-81 victory over Western Kentucky.

Matt Bouldin led GU with 20 points and Jeremy Pargo added 18. WKU guards A.J. Slaughter and Orlando Mendez-Valdez combined for 49 points.

Gonzaga moves on to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2006. GU will face top-seeded North Carolina in Memphis.

Game story in about two hours.

Game day for GU-WKU

Gonzaga and Western Kentucky will decide one of the spots in the Sweet 16 later today at the Rose Garden. Read more about it in the Louisville Courier-Journal and Oregonian. There’s a couple of articles on the Bowling Green Daily News, but the Website is down at the moment.

The S-R’s John Blanchette produced this column on Austin Daye. GU redshirt Andy Poling won’t play today, but here’s an update on the Portland-area prep product. The Chicago Tribune featured WKU’s Orlando Mendez-Valdez.
