Hoop Notes

The Huskies will unveil a new uniform and shoe in Maui. … The Gonzaga-K-State winner in Kansas City will face the Duke-Marquette winner. Gonzaga’s coming off a loss against a very good San Diego State team in which a veteran Gonzaga frontline, thought to be the strength of the team, wasn’t very good.
