West Coast powers Gonzaga, UCLA set to add another chapter to brief, but memorable rivalry

UPDATED: Wed., March 22, 2023

Nearly two years later, Mick Cronin still hasn’t watched the video of Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs’ 40-footer at the buzzer that handed the Bruins a 93-90 overtime loss at the 2021 Final Four in Indianapolis. The Bruins’ fourth-year head coach watched video of that instant classic and Gonzaga’s 83-63 rout over UCLA last season at T-Mobile Arena, but he froze the image after Johnny Juzang scored on a putback with 3.3 seconds remaining. “You mean that shot?” Cronin said. “I studied the game (Monday night). I hit the pause as soon as we tied it. What do I need to watch that for – you think I’m a masochist?”

Key matchup: Gonzaga’s Drew Timme hoping close friend Anton Watson can slow down good friend Jaime Jaquez Jr.

UPDATED: Wed., March 22, 2023

Drew Timme has known UCLA’s Jaime Jaquez Jr. for years, dating back to their days as prep standouts. They were roommates at the Ballislife All-American game and caught up at the ESPYS when Gonzaga’s pulsating 93-90 overtime against the Bruins in the 2021 Final Four won “Best Game” award. Their friendship is taking Thursday night off when third-seeded Gonzaga tangles with No. 2 UCLA at T-Mobile Arena.

‘A positive entity with a big smile.’ Zach Norvell Jr. has experienced game from different lens during return to Gonzaga

UPDATED: Tue., March 21, 2023

It’s become a popular route for Gonzaga players upon checking out of games. They’ll trade words with Mark Few. They’ll go down the line of folding chairs exchanging high-fives and fist bumps with teammates. Finally, they’ll stop at the end of the bench and pull up a seat next to the team’s first-year student assistant.

Gonzaga players trying to walk fine line with social media during everyday lives, NCAA Tournament

UPDATED: Tue., March 21, 2023

The Zags have certainly seen the nastier side of social media, which presents a double-edged sword for student-athletes. They’ve grown up in the social media age, so they’re accustomed to adoration that typically follows a good performance and biting criticism that rolls in if they or their team have a subpar showing. No topic appears to be off limits.
