Bullpups supersize CV, take 53-32 win

The question before the Greater Spokane League boys basketball game between first-place Gonzaga Prep and surging Central Valley was: How much the Bullpups’ size would have to do with the outcome? The answer? Everything.

G-Prep’s Fischer improved quickly

It is interesting to note that Sean Fischer – yes, the Gonzaga Prep 6-foot-1 guard who last week hung 31 points on defending State 4A champion Ferris – did not pick up a basketball for organized play until seventh grade. Nearly seven years prior were spent with his family in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, where his father, Jim, practiced medicine and Sean was a promising Little League baseball catcher.

Gonzaga Prep pulls away

Trailing 5-0 early during its game with North Central, unbeaten Gonzaga Prep ultimately had too much depth, which, matched with a non-stop defensive work ethic, produced a 65-35 Greater Spokane League boys basketball victory Tuesday night. The Bullpups (9-0) parlayed the offense of point guard David Stockton and impressive defense by sophomore reserve Chris Sarbaugh into a rally from late in the first quarter to early in the second quarter. And they put the game out of reach in the second half by outscoring the visiting Indians (5-3) 26-8.

G-Prep whips Shadle

Gonzaga Prep held the hot early hand and parlayed it into an easy victory Tuesday night in a matchup of the last Greater Spokane League boys basketball unbeatens. The Bullpups (4-0) shot 80 percent in the first quarter for a big lead and roared past visiting Shadle Park 65-47.

End of a Long tenure

The blue hour approaches, true twilight. The spastic scoreboard clock at Hart Field is running out on another season of football – five, maybe six minutes remain – and Gonzaga Prep has just broken a tie against Lewis and Clark with a quarterback sneak. Now Ron Long, in his 37th and – he says – final year of coaching the Bullpups freshmen, rolls the dice. “Two-point team!” he hollers.
