Connor Palacio has enough Gonzaga spirit to spread around the entire city of Los Angeles. On Thursday, Palacio was spreading the spirit in downtown Los Angeles hours before the Bulldogs took the court for their fourth consecutive Sweet 16 showing. He had painted his entire face red and blue and was dressed in Gonzaga gear from head to toe.
Jesse Wade, a freshman backup guard for the Gonzaga Bulldogs this season, is just now learning how much work it takes to be successful on the court, in the classroom and at home, all at the same time. But Wade has added one more ball to juggle – marriage.
BOISE – The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ postseason usually provides a good reason for alumni to throw a party. Year after year, Gonzaga alumni chapters come together to host socials and pull together alumni following the Zags in their run through the NCAA Tournament. The gatherings in the postseason are often made up of alumni from all over the country. Last season, when the Zags made their inaugural run to the Final Four, local chapters drew in Gonzaga alumni from several states as far as the East Coast.
