Quite the party the Gonzaga Bulldogs threw at McCarthey Athletic Center on Monday night. Marmite and earthworm pizza. Vinegar upside down cake. And a piñata filled with 30-weight Castrol and cockroaches. OK, so it wasn’t nearly that grim.
It took some effort to muster concerns Monday night against overmatched North Dakota State, but Gonzaga has experience lulls following Thanksgiving week tournaments. Reaching deep into the wayback machine, the Bison’s travel troubles – they didn’t arrive in Spokane until roughly noon Monday because of flight delays – brought to mind Portland State’s two-day, 10-hour bus trip before springing an upset over the Zags in 2008.

The debate began shortly after Gonzaga outlasted Duke and picked up steam a couple days later when Kansas rallied past Tennessee in overtime. It simmered over the weekend.
