However, Gonzaga lost at home to a non-conference opponent, the Washington State Cougars in basketball last night, 51-47. The Cougars slowed the game to a crawl and won. Good for them. The Zag fan in me is disappointed in the loss, however, since I don't live in Washington state, better that they beat the UConn Huskies and lose to the Wazzu Cougs than the other way around. From my social circle point of view, the more Gonzaga, Mariners and Seahawks beat the eastern teams, the better it is for me.
If WSU is so good, let's see what they do against UCLA, Arizona, USC, etc in the Pac-10 and also if they can knock off a North Carolina or Kansas.
