The Gonzaga Bulldogs are marching into the Sweet Sixteen for the fourth time in as many years. From different parts of the country – and in some cases, the world – former Zag players have offered messages of support on social media. As GU prepares for its Sweet Sixteen test, we look back at 16 posts from former players who took to the Twittersphere last night as the Zags knocked off Ohio State 90-84.

Former Gonzaga center Przemek Karnowkski gave passing grades to Josh Perkins and Zach Norvell Jr. The referees? Maybe not.

Ex-Zags forward Kyle Wiltjer predicted Norvell’s outburst.

Dan Dakich, an ESPN color commentator and the father of Ohio State guard Andrew Dakich, paid up after losing a bet with former GU player Rem Bakamus.

And Bakamus gave Dakich a few frames to choose from…

Bakamus also reacted to the Zags’ victory over Ohio State.

Former Gonzaga player Eric McClellan chimes in.

The Bulldogs were playing in his hometown of Boise, but Kyle Dranginis checks in from Trier, Germany, where he’s currently playing pro ball. He was entertained by Josh Perkins’ first-half collision with video coordinator Riccardo Fois.

Nigel Williams-Goss, currently playing for Serbian club Partizan, was back in the United States for Saturday’s game.

Maybe there was a friendly bet between Kelly Olynyk and his ex-Boston Celtic teammate/former Ohio State standout Evan Turner?

From one Jr. to another: Sam Dower Jr. was one of many who enjoyed the show put on by Zach Norvell Jr.

Dan Dickau wasn’t far from all the action in Boise.
