It’s been six months almost to the day when Gonzaga fans first caught a glimpse of the 2018-19 men’s basketball team. Kraziness in the Kennel serves as the unofficial start to each season, and many memories were made in a season that saw the Bulldogs reach the Elite Eight for the third time in five seasons.

Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura was named to the AP All-America second team and teammate Brandon Clarke earned third-team honors. It marked the fifth straight year and six of the last seven that Gonzaga has had at least one representative receive AP recognition.
