It would have been easy for Gonzaga head coach Mark Few to cast blame after his team’s dramatic 71-65 loss in the national championship game Monday night to North Carolina. But instead of blaming the officials or injuries, Few credited his players and said this:
“I couldn’t be prouder, man. They absolutely ignited a lot of stale people that were kinda bored with the Zags and saying that we hadn’t been capable of achieving something like this. I think they got the whole world behind them and believing in them. And I’ll tell you this, they did it the right way, man. These are high-character dudes that are good students and are hoopers and that’s what college basketball is supposed to be all about.”
710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard said Tuesday that it was those types of responses that show why it’s time to stop the “Mark Few hate,” while co-host Mike Salk said Few’s response was the best cure for a depressed Bulldogs fan. You can watch and hear the conversation embedded above.
