Photo: Zag pride is always in fashion

Color consultant: JoAnn Brown, a 1986 Gonzaga University graduate from Spokane, consults with her husband, Jerry, on which color “Gonzaga No. 1” T-shirts they should buy from the Zag Shop on the GU campus. About 200 shirts arrived at the store Tuesday morning, a day after the school’s men’s basketball team reached the top of the national polls. By early Tuesday afternoon only a handful of shirts remained, but a new shipment is expected today. The Browns purchased three red shirts for family members. (Dan Pelle)
