Add another item to the Thanksgiving Day menu: Gonzaga vs. Kansas.
Gonzaga’s track record in season and/or home openers is just about spotless and the Zags are heavy favorites to continue that trend Tuesday. The Zags are favored by 35 points against visiting Alabama State, but odds and past seasons are of little concern to Gonzaga coach Mark Few.
Jacoby Ross is the shortest player on Alabama State’s roster and he’s not listed as a probable starter against Gonzaga, but the 5-foot-9, 180-pound junior should see plenty of court time.
Tillie is tired of talking about injuries for obvious reasons after missing 22 games last season due to a stress fracture and partially torn plantar fascia. The talented, 6-foot-10 forward doesn’t have a target date but it’s possible he could be back for the regular-season opener against Alabama State on Nov. 5.
“It’s really difficult to be a Cougar fan,” Kay Miller said, referring to the travel as well as the ever-moving target that is the kickoff time. But for nearly three decades she and husband Mike have made it work, and their optimism about Washington State’s football team might have never been higher.
As part of the celebration of its 100th season, the NFL will break from tradition and feature the Packers vs. the Bears in its season opener Sept. 5.
Ready or not, the Spokane Empire’s season opener has arrived with built-in storylines.
Sophomore forward Domantas Sabonis scored a career-high 26 points, leading Gonzaga to an easy 91-52 victory over Northern Arizona on Wednesday at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
Gonzaga has gone from playing in one of the first college basketball games of the season to being one of the last to officially start.
Turns out it takes 20 minutes for Gonzaga to go from zero to 60. Actually 54 of those points came in a dazzling 16-minute stretch as the Bulldogs reached 60 points by halftime and crushed Sacramento State 104-58 in the season opener for both teams Friday.
Gonzaga, featuring a seasoned backcourt, a talented big man, high-profile transfers and depth, tonight launches one of its most highly anticipated men’s basketball seasons. Six of ESPN.com’s 22 basketball staffers projected the 13th-ranked Zags will reach the Final Four for the first time.
Gonzaga, featuring a seasoned backcourt, a talented big man, high-profile transfers and depth, tonight launches one of its most highly anticipated seasons.
Minus four plays at the outset, the Spokane Shock opened the 2014 season looking very much like the 2013 edition that won 15 games. Spokane spotted Iowa nine points early but all the Barnstormers will remember is the Shock scoring in virtually every possible manner –including one unique to the Arena Football League – in a 64-35 runaway Saturday before an announced sell-out crowd of 10,224 at the Arena.
In a game fully stocked with Gonzaga highlights, one sequence probably stood out. Przemek Karnowski, the talented 7-foot-1 center from Poland, scored on a pick-and-roll, beat the defense down the court two times in a row for easy baskets, got fouled on the low block, made another field goal and forced a turnover on a Southern Utah guard 30 feet from the hoop.
The season opener arrives tonight and Gonzaga basketball players and coaches think it’s about time. “I can’t wait. It’s been a grind, but it’s crazy that it’s already here,” sophomore guard Kevin Pangos said of No. 21 Gonzaga’s opener against Southern Utah at the McCarthey Athletic Center. “We’ve worked hard over the summer. It’ll be nice to put it on display.”
Add one more to the list of unbelievable endings to a Spokane Shock game. Only this time, the Shock weren’t able to complete an improbable comeback. With starting quarterback Erik Meyer knocked out of the game late in the fourth quarter, Spokane made up a two-touchdown deficit, pulling even on Terrance Sanders’ 54-yard return of a missed field goal. In overtime, Iowa came up with an interception and J.J. Raterink tossed a 35-yard touchdown pass to Marco Thomas as the visiting Barnstormers won 69-63 Monday at the Arena in an Arena Football League opener.
Finally, it’s about football. After several days of phone calls, texts and tweets centered on labor issues, the Spokane Shock will open the Arena Football League season against Iowa on Monday at the Arena focused on game plans and Xs and Os.
