Zags Great Season Comes to a Shocking End
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga's special season has ended with another early exit in the NCAA tournament. Although they reached No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 and earned a top seed in the tournament, the Zags were bounced 76-70 in the round of 32 on Saturday by Wichita State Schockers. Now attention turns to whether star center Kelly Olynyk will return for his senior season.Gonzaga (32-3) became just the fifth top seed to lose in the round of 32 since the NCAA expanded to 64 teams, and that gave fuel to critics who contended this team was overrated. But players and coaches insist the season will not be defined by one game.
