Coaches like Gonzaga’s chances

Gonzaga basketball coach Mark Few doesn’t long for the good old days of the West Coast Conference because, well, they weren’t always all that good. Gonzaga was tabbed WCC favorites for the umpteenth time in the coaches’ preseason poll and four Bulldogs made the 10-player All-WCC preseason team. The poll was released Monday just before the conference’s annual tip-off event in Los Angeles, where nine head coaches were joined by one of their top players for 10-minute interviews streamed live on YouTube.

Cancer makes event even more meaningful for Rose

Brigham Young University men’s basketball coach Dave Rose has always given his time generously to support cancer-stricken patients and assist fundraising for cancer research, but it’s taken on new meaning over the last 14 months. In June, 2009, Rose felt light-headed on a flight to Las Vegas. By the time the plane landed, Rose was sprawled over three seats and had to be helped from the cabin by emergency medical staff. He was vomiting blood when he reached the hospital. Doctors removed a softball-sized tumor from his spleen and also removed part of his pancreas and six lymph nodes. Two days after the surgery, he was told he had pancreatic cancer, which usually carries a bleak prognosis.
