If you’re a fan of Bainbridge High grad Steven Gray and the Gonzaga Bulldogs, you’ll want to check out this video. It’s a really cool tribute to Gonzaga’s senior. It’s 13 minutes long, but if you have the time, I heartily recommend it. You get a pretty good idea of how much Gray means to his teammates.
The interviews with his teammates are priceless, especially the ones with Rob Sacre, who is like a brother to Gray. They’re the “ying and yang,” of Gonzaga basketball.
If Gray doesn’t wind up in the NBA or playing professionally somewhere, his teammate say that the laid-back Gray will probably be on an island someplace, wearing no shoes. Or living cheaply in Africa or acting at some club in the Seattle area.
On another note, this is what ESPN’s Dick Vitale had to say about the Zags, who open the NCAA Tournament on Thursday against St. John’s (CBS, around 6:45 p.m.):
“After a slow start, Gonzaga has come back to life, winning the West Coast Tournament. Steven Gray will be tough to stop, and I believe the Zags will score a first-round upset over coach Steve Lavin and St. John’s in Denver … I see Gonzaga being a real surprise, getting all the way to the Elite Eight.”
