Speaking of which…

The Senate later this morning is expected to pass Sen. Lisa Brown's still-unnumbered resolution "recognizing the talent and hard work of the Gonzaga University Bulldogs men's basketball coaches and players."

A sampling:

"Whereas, Gonzaga University's basketball bans are the self-proclaimed `Zag Nation,' and the Bulldogs keep giving them plenty to celebrate this season...

"Whereas, the Bulldogs have not lost a home game since early 2003..."

"Whereas, the Bulldogs' head coach Mark Few, who has an impressive career coaching record of 183-40 over nearly seven seasons..."

And so forth. It singles out junior forward Adam Morrison, senior center J.P. Batista and junior forward Sean Mallon for special praise, and orders that copies of the resolution be dispatched to Coach Few.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
