The Bulldogs came in as the perceived top team in the West, but leave with plenty of questions. One big one: Did they peak too early in Maui? Gonzaga has to return to the West Coast and find themselves again. They still have plenty of opportunities with games against Illinois in Chicago, Oklahoma in Spokane and at Memphis. But the Zags can’t look as lost as they did Saturday and expect to be taken seriously deep into March.

- ESPN's Andy Katz reacts to Duke's demolition of Gonzaga Like he says, still plenty of opportunities for this team. The next couple games will tell us everything we need to know about Gonzaga.

Not only is Pargo shooting in his first season of professional basketball, but he's doing it better than practically everyone else in the Israeli Super League. Galil/Gilboa's 23-year-old, 1.88-meter guard is averaging 20.8 points a game, slightly less than league-leading Marco Killingsworth of Netanya.

-- Haaretz.com Just an outstanding read on former Gonzaga Bulldog Jeremy Pargo. It sounds like he is really flourishing in Israel and has some good coaching which is all you can ask for in international competition.

Gonzaga's @mattbouldin15 told FOXSports.com he will be back for this weekend's game against Duke after missing last game with head injury.

-- Fox Sports' Jeff Goodman via Twitter We figured Matt Bouldin wouldn't miss the season's biggest game to date in Madison Square Garden but it's good to get some confirmation from Goodman.

Ed Gordon said Georgetown, Florida, Notre Dame, Nevada, New Mexico and Gonzaga are among the schools showing interest in his son.

-- San Diego Union Tribune Drew Gordon, the touted UCLA transfer, is still formulating a list of schools that he is interested in after leaving Ben Howland and the Bruins. Personally, I feel like San Diego State has a 95% chance of landing Drew but it is good to see Gonzaga showing interest. We're working to secure some sort of interview regarding the nature of Gonzaga's interest.

The Wizards pulled even several times in the third quarter, but rookie Austin Daye hit three key jumpers to move Detroit back in front. The 6-foot-11 Daye, playing shooting guard with Stuckey in foul trouble, had seven points in the period as the Pistons took a 71-69 lead into the fourth.

--ESPN.com Great night for Austin Daye as the Pistons gutted out a win over the Wizards. As a Gonzaga fan, it hurts to hear him excel as a shooting guard and on the outside. If only he could have played with Elias Harris and a healthy Rob Sacre.

"I saw the replay on TV, too, and I didn’t even recognize that he clipped me with the elbow," Harris said. "I just stepped back and just normal underarm on his chest and went for the rebound. He just fell."

-- Elias Harris Jim Meehan over at the Spokesman with the write-up. We can sit here and judge Elias all we want but from what I've seen thus far, there is nothing dirty about this kid. I trust whatever Coach Few does but I hope to see him on Wednesday.

Sacre is a third-year sophomore. German national Elias Harris is a 20-year old freshman. The two "experienced" and new fulltime players in the rotation are making this team seem less green next to senior guard Matt Bouldin. Harris was smooth in scoring 17 points, grabbing nine boards and making 6 of 16 shots against Michigan State. "He's as good as we have had,'' Few said of Harris. "He's a good, tough, hard-nosed competitive dude.''

-- Andy Katz's "Daily Word" This quote is a piece of a nice write-up by Katz regardin this year's version of the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Calls them tougher and smarter than in years past.

Michigan State-Gonzaga: This matchup always delivers. Gonzaga was impressive in its loss at the Breslin Center -- especially how physically tough and strong the Zags were inside. Robert Sacre has really improved, and he is now one of the more patient and poised big men in the nation. Multiple times, Sacre established post position with a foot in the lane or with both feet in the paint. The latter has been termed a "double bury" and essentially means that Sacre didn't need to make a post move because he had already done his work. When he received the ball off the block, Sacre waited for cutters to clear and went to work without rushing, and was outstanding. Combine him with the explosive athleticism and energy of Elias Harris, and you have one of the best post tandems in the nation. Gonzaga is top-20 good, just really young past the first five. And the Zags are defending and rebounding at a high level, something that the program has taken heat over in past years.

More praise from the national media. This time Jay Bilas has nothing but compliments for the Sacre/Harris combination.

Daniel Mathews (Spokane): Lets hear your thoughts on Gonzaga and the WCC. Do you think Gonzaga rebuilds or reloads? Jay Bilas: Reloads. The big men are very good. Robert Sacre will be the next in a long line of All-WCC bigs from Gonzaga, and Elias Harris is a big time athlete. With Demetri Goodson, Matt Bouldin and Steven Gray, that is a terrific line-up. Perhaps not the great depth and experience of last year, but very, very good.

-Jay Bilas chat on ESPN.com You know you've "arrived" when you can reload rather than rebuild. When Jay Bilas says your team has reloaded, it's just that much sweeter. Great question DanielMathews

In an effort to beef up its non-conference schedule, ASU will play Gonzaga in next season's John R. Wooden Classic, an event played at The Honda Center in Anaheim. ASU also is scheduled to participate in the Great Alaska Shootout.

Another great non-conference game for the 2010-2011 season. Arizona St. will be very good in 2010, and joins an impressive list that includes Xavier, Illinois, Memphis, and Michigan St on the schedule.
