Game day for GU-Akron

No shortage of NCAA coverage, so we’ll get to the GU-related links. Here’s John Blanchette’s look at Akron coach Keith Dambrot, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s advance, A.P.’s advance, and a trio of items in the Akron newspaper, including this blog post. (Make sure to check out the separate post on Blanchette’s interview with The Rev. Robert Spitzer.)

The Washington Post wrote about the LeBron James-Akron connection. The Seattle Times visited with Jeremy Pargo and Bud Withers columnized on GU’s recent NCAA failures.  Ex-S-R staffer Dave Boling has this piece on Micah Downs. Finally, here’s a podcast with former Zag Ronny Turiaf.

And here’s Chris Anderson’s photos of GU from Wednesday’s press conferences and practice at the Rose Garden.

Zips-Zags: From Z to Z

Good morning from Portland. Not sure if this will reach anybody because I’ve been bumped off my wireless connection about a half dozen times and I can’t get to my e-mail. So, we’ll keep it short.

We’ll give you something to chuckle about with columnist John Blanchette catching a lot of zzzs. Here’s a look at Akron guard Steve McNees regaining his shooting stroke. And here’s a blog item on Gonzaga fans snapping up Zips’ tickets.

Press conferences later this afternoon. Back tonight with more.
