A thought on scheduling

As Gonzaga prepares to take on Ok St this evening, the fifth Big 12 school this season, I wanted to highlight one aspect of Coach Few's scheduling strategy that I particularly like. Once upon a...

To say Gonzaga plays like a power conference team ...

... is an insult. There are plenty of programs in power conferences that have no business being mentioned in the same sentence as Gonzaga. After the WV win yesterday, plenty of analysts immediately...

What's gone wrong: Gonzaga always has the best talent in the WCC by a wide margin, but this whole does not equal the sum of the parts. Forward Elias Harris was a freshman sensation but a sophomore question mark. Guard Steven Gray is averaging a career-high 14.9 points per game but shooting a career-low 44 percent from the field. Center Robert Sacre has improved his all-around numbers but still leaves you wanting more. And point guard has been an ongoing issue.

ESPN's Pat Forde has Gonzaga as one of the busts of the year.

The sorry state of the WCC

  So while most Zags fans have been worrying about Elias' health and the Bulldogs' overall underwhelming performances against San Diego State and Kansas State, I have been quietly worrying about...

Steven Gray running the point

Last season, Coach Few showed a willingness to experiment with Steven at the point guard position. In another thread, I expressed my desire to see Steven playing point again sometime this season....

Another solid game from KO!

Kelly Olynyk led the Canadian team in scoring with 14 points and pulled down 4 boards in a 89-67 loss to Spain. Despite Canada's poor performance in FIBA, KO's play has been a real bright spot for Zag fans. Sacre pitched in with 8 points and 3 rebounds.

Nice game from KO in FIBA WC

Kelly Olynyk scored 13 points on 4/5 from the field and pulled a couple key rebounds down the stretch for the Canadian national team, who almost pulled out the upset over the undefeated French team. The final score was 68-63. Canada's next game is tomorrow against New Zealand.

Elias Harris vs. Argentina

2

In more interesting news (Kyle who?), Germany dropped their opening game in the FIBA World Basketball Championship to Argentina 78-74, though, in the end, the game was probably a lot closer than expected. Elias came off the bench playing 18 mins., scoring 6 pts., getting 1 board, dishing 2 assists, and blocking a shot. Germany's next game is tomorrow against Serbia.

Austin Daye is currently in the middle of his second stint in the Las Vegas Summer League, and the one thing you notice about his play is that he just looks comfortable.

Heytvelt update

Seems like Josh Heytvelt is settling in nicely with his new team Oyak Renault in the Turkish Basketball League. So far, he has led his team, now 1-1, in scoring and rebounding, averaging 20 points, 9.5 boards, and 2.5 dishes. Their next game is this Sunday against Tofas, who are also 1-1.

Stockton's Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement speech

Yesterday, Gonzaga legend John Stockton took his rightful place among the basketball greats in the Basketball Hall of Fame. I thought his was a pretty good speech with Gonzaga getting quite a bit of play. Highlights from Stockton's career can be seen here.
