There is probably no better way to watch a college basketball game than from inside a loud, raucous arena with about 6,000 of your best friends. But watching from home, with the DVR doing its thing and ESPN2’s cameras catching just about everything, is pretty nice, too.
If you stayed with the KHQ broadcast of Gonzaga’s 69-59 win over the University of San Diego until after it was over, you heard Richard Fox sum up the less than two hours of basketball perfectly. “(A) hard-fought, excellent game defensively,” Fox said following the Zags’ 20th win of the season. “GU just had one more spurt, one more run on their offensive side of the ball (and) got the win.”
It was just the cozy Kennel confines that mattered for those of watching at home however. It also was the local announcing crew of Greg Heister, Dan Dickau and Richard Fox. Hearing their voices, which have been absent on GU games lately, is the aural equivalent of a home-cooked meal.
There are a lot of words one could use to describe Gonzaga’s 95-79 West Coast Conference win Thursday night at Portland, but mesmerizing may not be one of them.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs, in general, needed a bounce-back game after their loss Thursday night to Saint Mary’s. And Josh Perkins, in particular, needed one personally after a 1-for-9 shooting performance in that one. Saturday night in Santa Clara both accomplished their goals as the Zags cruised to an eased-off 75-60 win behind Perkins’ 17-point night.
Gonzaga ascended to the No. 13 spot in the Associated Press basketball poll this week and that proved to be unlucky, as the Zags proceeded to lose their first West Coast Conference game of the season, 74-71 to Saint Mary’s before the usual 6,000 at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
When a Gonzaga game is on ESPNU and the broadcast team is Eric Rothman and Adrian Branch, you can depend on a few things.
For the fifth time in five games, the Gonzaga Bulldogs rolled to an easy West Coast Conference victory. But the players who keyed the win, and one who didn’t, were the biggest news on a night the Zags blew out Portland 103-57 before 6,000 at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
Over the course of his Gonzaga career, coach Mark Few has enjoyed success any way you want to measure it.
It’s easy to imagine the bigwigs at ESPN, those whose lives revolve around the rating numbers, hate blowouts. Especially when a game on one of their properties begins after 11 p.m. on an East Coast socked in with snow, possibly making such a late game a bit more attractive.
The word of the day during KHQ’s broadcast of Gonzaga’s easy 101-52 win over visiting Santa Clara on Saturday night? It might have been “frustration” or some variation of it.
With about 13 minutes left in Gonzaga’s game Thursday night at San Diego State, CBS Sports Network analyst Steve Lappas described the contest perfectly.
It’s pretty interesting when one can be prophetic. And it is even more so when all three people on the Gonzaga television broadcast can do it.
To every University of Washington fan who has DirecTV and couldn’t watch the Huskies’ home game with Gonzaga on Sunday night, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott would like to say “you’re welcome.”
ESPN hosts the Jimmy V Classic, a two-game basketball tournament in New York City, for a good cause.
The 15th-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs rallied in the second half to run away from 25th-ranked Creighton on Friday, winning 91-74 at the McCarthey Athletic Center. It’s too bad others involved with the game that was broadcast into our homes couldn’t find their form after halftime as well.
If you missed it, Gonzaga blew out Incarnate Word by 35 points on Wednesday night. Asking “who” is probably OK.
Doug Sherman had it exactly right. “Can this game get any better?” the ESPN2 play-by-play announcer asked.
For the first time this season, Gonzaga left the friendly confines of the McCarthey Athletic Center.
After sailing through two early quizzes, Gonzaga was expecting its first test Saturday night at the McCarthey Center.
