    On some good/normal basketball news, the #2 Point Guard and #9 overall recruit Jalen Suggs just confirmed on his IG that he will be coming to Gonzaga next year. He has been committed but was also leaving the door open to play overseas. I would have to guess that the coronavirus has made that option less desirable.

    Suggs will be the highest recruit in Gonzaga history and will make them at least preseason top 3 next year. This year's Zags team played very well but most realistic fans knew that this was not their best team. Next year's 2 deep could comprise entirely of top 100 recruits.

    It's crazy, I was telling someone earlier about how I can remember when we had sports.

    They will probably lose Petrusev. Gonzaga fans are split on whether they like him or not though. He has great numbers, but I think he's soft and probably the worst Gonzaga center in a while. But he is going to be a 3rd team All American so he definitely is good. A lot of fans believe that Oumar Ballo will be much better. He is way more athletic and tough.

    They also lose their starting Point guard and backup shooting guard. That should be it though.

    His name would be much more interesting if it was Salen Juggs.

    Gonzaga is going to be a force next year. Would be very surprised if they don't start the season #1. Probable starting lineup.

    Jalen Suggs
    Joel Ayayi
    Corey Kispert
    Anton Watson
    Drew Timme/Oumar Ballo

    Strawther, Harris, and Zakharov (So) are all 4-star recruits that should be in the mix for significant playing time.

    Gonzaga will be good, but I don't see preseason #1. Suggs is the #9 recruit and they are losing Gilder and Tillie.
    Someone earlier said Petrusev is leaving, but he's a sophomore, so maybe that's not correct.
    Either way, they might be top 10, but one top 10 recruit isn't going to offset losing Tillie and Admon Gilder.

    It's amazing that top talent in the country goes to Gonzaga to play in 3-4 tough games a year and then a bunch of pasties. Toughest in conference competition is a bunch of 30 year old white mormons...

    FYI, I do like Gonzaga and I love Spokane.
