Kevin and Gary are excited.
About two months from now, it will be the morning of Gonzaga's first regular season game against Southern Utah. For me, I would probably say this is the most excited I have been for a season. I know, I know, I'm sure at some point each offseason I say that but the potential of this team is truly limitless.
The most obvious headline for this team heading into the season is the incredible backcourt duo...who both happen to be sophomores. Gary Bell and Kevin Pangos formed an incredible tandem as freshmen last season and while they both had their ups and downs, by the end of the year I don't think anyone would say they were playing like freshmen.
While I'm beyond stoked for GBJ and Pangos, the 2012-13 team belongs to Elias Harris. Harris turned into a complete player in the second half of last season and I expect him to simply be outstanding this year. With Sam Dower poises for a big year, Kelly Olynyk coming off a redshirt season, and the arrival of Przemek Karnowski, the frontcourt should be incredibly tough.
