What an AMAZING season for the Gonzaga Bulldogs!

The rally drew a big crowd on Wednesday afternoon to the Gonzaga campus. Zags fans held signs and cheered loudly for the team.

Senior center Przemek Karnowski thanked Spokane for the support during his five years on the team. "It's been an awesome ride and I will forever have Gonzaga in my heart," he said.

Nigel Williams-Goss, a transfer from the University of Washington, thanked the crowd for welcoming him into the Gonzaga family. "This was the best season of my life," he said.  "From the bottom of my heart I just want to thank each and every one of you. We love you. Go Zags!"
