Gonzaga defeats St. Mary's 75-63 WCC Championship


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!
