Zags’ Bell Will Keep Speech Short, Sweet

Gary Bell Jr.’s Senior Day speech is nine days away, but he already knows two things: He’s going to be a little nervous addressing 6,000 inside the McCarthey Athletic Center and he’s not going to be long-winded. “I’ll make it short and simple,” Bell said. That is the Gonzaga guard’s way, and has been since he joined the program. When he committed to the Zags, turning down six Pac-12 scholarship offers in the process, Bell deflected a reporter’s phone call to his father. “I just play,” shrugged a smiling Bell, when reminded of that April day in 2010. “I don’t have to be in the media. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I rarely post”/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
