I believe it was Bill Murray who best described post-season basketball: OK, I guess were playing for keeps now. OK, I might be taking his line a tad out of context, but its too late to type another intro. Gonzagas men and women -- I take on double duty at the WCC tournaments -- move into their respective tournaments as the top seeds, awaiting Thursdays outcomes before learning their first-round assignments. Gonzagas women open Friday, the men Saturday. Heres a look at the GU women and heres a look at the GU men. Heres a glance at the tourney.
When Gonzaga Prep point guard Sam Dowd passes the ball to a teammate – especially to Reed Hopkins, Brendan McClary, Ryan Alexander or Frankie Hoerner – he expects immediate action. Dowd punctuates every pass with an oral declaration: “Shoot it, man.”
Gonzaga earned the No. 1 seed for the WCC women’s basketball tournament and rightfully so. To earn the tournament title at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas the 21st-ranked Bulldogs could encounter three opponents that gave them fits at least once during the regular season.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs are hoping for a restful night of sleep March 15.
