GONZAGA: Inland Empire features best team in US

Yes, indeed, Spokane is the home of Gonzaga University and the No. 1 basketball team in the land. After sparse, mostly Associated Press articles last week, I finally spotted a much-deserved sports-front headline Monday morning. But sadly, the coverage was mostly about the losing UW and WSU programs. What gives?

Combined, the UW and WSU student populations are 50,000 while GU is 5,000. An interesting David and Goliath, for sure, but there are many great things to write about the little school that could, including another trip to the NCAA Tournament (not the NIT) and this time a probable No. 1 seed.

Maybe winning more will get better page positioning. If the home and away series with the Huskies were to start back up it would be front page for sports for sure. Why was that canceled again? In the meantime, it’s Hoosiers in our own backyard. Go Zags!
