Gonzaga’s entire roster made sure Robert Sacre and Marquise Carter enjoyed their Senior Night. Carter had 13 points and five assists and Sacre chipped in five points and six rebounds as the Bulldogs routed Longwood 92-60 in front of an appreciative audience of 6,000 in the regular-season finale Monday at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Freshmen Gary Bell Jr. (20 points), Kevin Pangos (12 points) and Ryan Spangler (12 points, 10 rebounds) helped the Bulldogs (24-5) build leads as large as 35 points against the visiting Lancers, a Division I independent from Farmville, Va./Jim Meehan, SR.

Question: What will be the legacy of Robert Sacre and Marquise Carter among the Zag greats?
Three Rivers Community College guard Marquise Carter said Thursday he has verbally committed to the Gonzaga men’s basketball program.
It was no secret Gonzaga’s first priority in recruiting was a guard. The 6-foot-4 Carter, who played point guard while leading Three Rivers (Poplar Bluff, Mo.) to a runner-up finish at the national tournament in Hutchinson, Kan,, was an NJCAA first-team All-American this season and a second-team selection last season. Carter scored 35 points in Three Rivers’ overtime loss to Howard in the NJCAA title game.
Carter is the first commitment of GU’s 2010 class.
I just spoke to Carter and I’ll have a story up in about 45 minutes or so.
