Alex Roth and Alex Humble, Williams-Goss’ best buddies dating back to fourth grade at Happy Valley (Ore.) Elementary school, will be on hand to watch the Final Four.
This is going to be a tricky one for Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth. Roth hasn’t sat down during a GU game he’s attended since the 2000 season.
