Blanchette: Bell and Pangos left important legacy

In the spring of 2000 – still at the beginning of things, in the modest scope of Millenial Zag – Matt Santangelo, Richie Frahm, Mike Nilson and Ryan Floyd departed the Gonzaga basketball program in the greatest exodus of backcourt achievement in Inland Northwest college basketball history.

Silas Melson: Attention to detail

The Portland native was pressed into duty last year as a true freshman when Perkins was sidelined. Roughly two minutes into his first game against St. John’s in the NIT Season Tip-Off championship at famed Madison Square Garden, Melson drained a 3-pointer. He made 34 percent beyond the 3-point line and averaged 3.2 points in limited playing time.

Josh Perkins: Counting on outside presence

Josh Perkins was off to a nice start as Kevin Pangos’ backup last year but was sidelined after five games by a broken jaw. He scored 13 points against St. Joseph’s. He averaged 20 minutes, 5 points and 3.4 assists as the Zags routed four of their first five opponents.

Kyle Dranginis: Steady contributor with versatile skills

The 6-5 senior from Nampa, Idaho, has been a steady contributor the last three seasons. He stepped in as a starter for eight games for an injured Bell two years ago and delivered 12 points and four assists in a rout over Saint Mary’s. He scored in double figures twice in last year’s WCC Tournament. Dranginis had a 30-point outburst in his freshman season against Lewis-Clark State College.

Eric McClellan: Energy at both ends of court

Eric McClellan became eligible last season at semester break but a foot injury delayed his debut until Jan. 22. He averaged just 8 minutes and 1.9 points per game, but he had 14 assists versus four turnovers.

Meet Charles Callison: He is DaVonté Lacy’s replacement

When Charles Callison arrived at Washington State for his first summer workouts with his new team, he was a real pain. He didn’t treat the games like regular offseason runs where dunking was more important than defense, he got into guys.

Meet Ike Iroegbu: He is DaVonté Lacy’s replacement

The Sacramento 24 Hour Fitness was a tornado of Iroegbus. Eldest brother Chukwuemeka “Chuks,” middle brother Ikenna “Ike,” and Uchenna, the youngest, zipped around a non-regulation court that was too small for their speed, forcing them to get used to arriving at the rim at a dead sprint.

Sir Washington: The defender

Sir Washington says he’s ready to step up and make a bigger contribution, and Hayford is ready to oblige.

Felix Von Hofe: The Shooter

More than almost anyone on the Eagles roster, Felix Von Hofe said he’s grateful for the addition of playmaking point guard Austin McBroom.

Austin McBroom: The point

For EWU coach Jim Hayford, the top priority in off-season recruiting was replacing Drew Brandon, a versatile 6-foot-4 point guard who was comfortable in the paint as well as the perimeter.
