🎓🏀Gonzaga: The top-seeded ’Zags easily brushed aside fifth-seeded Creighton yesterday. Drew Timme (pronounced TIMMY) led the team in scoring for a second-straight game with an efficient 22-point performance, but three other ’Zags also scored in double figures. Teamwork makes the dream work.

  • Mama Timme’s earrings (featuring Drew’s face) must be good luck. And we guess if three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade is a fan of Drew’s ’stache, it can stay.
  • Up next for the ’Zags? A fascinating freshman showdown tomorrow night between Jalen Suggs and No. 6 USC’s Evan Mobley, who are both projected as top-five picks in the 2021 NBA draft. Let’s show those SoCal boys who’s boss. 

🎓🥎🏐UW: No. 6 UW softball wrapped up a four-game series against No. 14 Arizona State yesterday, winning two. After the Dawgs dropped the first two games (including this wildly shocking finish), their bats heated up to score 25 cumulative runs over their last two dates with the Sun Devils. That’s more like it.

The softball team wasn’t the only Husky squad on a wild ride. No. 8 UW volleyball battled through and took a marathon third set 33–31 (!!!) yesterday en route to the weekend series sweep over Stanford. What a block party.
