Gonzaga's gone, its resume of 15 straight NCAA appearances and 32 wins meaning little after being knocked out of the West Regional 76-70 by a barrage of Wichita State 3-pointers.
Some people may have heard of the school that's suddenly generating a bit of March Madness buzz. Harvard. Yep, Harvard —the school known for producing U.S. presidents, Supreme Court justices and Nobel Prize winners earned its first NCAA tournament victory Thursday night with a 68-62 upset of No. 3 seed New Mexico.
Maybe it's the quirky name of the school, "Gonzaga." Or its pint-sized enrollment of 4,900. Or the fact that employees at one office in its hometown are so gaga over the `Zags, they wore their hair long at work this week as a shout-out to the team's best player, flowing-tressed 7-footer Kelly Olynyk.
Drop the pen. Everybody knows no ink makes contact with a bracket sheet until Monday night at the earliest. Until it's deadline time, pencils are preferred.
With No. 1 Indiana losing to Minnesota on Tuesday, the Zags might reach the top of the AP basketball poll Monday if they can beat BYU on Thursday and Portland on Saturday.
Second-ranked Gonzaga's game at BYU on Thursday suddenly has national significance.
