Zags’ Kraziness in the Kennel introduces remade Gonzaga

In WCC by Ken Cross

With Nigel Williams-Goss, Zach Collins, Prezmek Karnowski, and Jordan Matthews off to professional basketball careers, coach Mark Few is presiding over a remake that should help place the Gonzaga Bulldogs back near the top of the WCC.

“Kraziness at the Kennel” is the Gonzaga answer to Midnight Madness and it introduced the 2017-18 Bulldogs on Saturday.  The entire program was crafted well as the new team met it’s fans, alumni, and students.

A three-point shoot out, a dunk contest, and a 15-minute intra-squad scrimmage highlighted action, but clearly the peak of the evening was when the Final Four banner was hung in the rafters commemorating last season’s national runner up.

Josh Perkins, Killian Tilley, Silas Melson, and Jonathan Williams return to the team as Few’s most experienced players.  Gonzaga brings in three four-star freshmen in small forward Corey Kispert, and shooting guards Zach Norvell, Jr., and Jesse Wade.
