I had so many photos I wanted to share from this game, it gets it's own blog.
It was a packed house at the Orleans Arena.
For the battle between Gonzaga and St. Mary's men's basketball for the WCC Championship.
The Gael's had great the fan support.
But the Bulldogs/Zags filled the arena.. and had the MOST impressive cheerleaders. (Note: Will do a full cheerleader blog later, SO looking forward to it!)
I almost got in the game too. Yikes!
After a back and forth battle which eventually turned in favor of the Zags, the game ended 75-63.
All the players celebrated with each other, family and fans.
How cool must this coach's son feel?
Then they were awarded their trophy
Normally they go cut the net, but I saw Steven Fray run off the court, I knew Kyle would be shooting the cutting of the net, so I took the opportunity to follow him in case it made for an interesting photo.
Sure enough, he climbed up into the stands to give his mom a hug... awhhh
Then hey, look who I found in the trophy, hello! =)
The West Coast Conference put on a great tournament in front of an awesome crowd. Congratulations to the WCC, Gonzaga, and all the players, coaches, universities, alumni, and fans!
