What promised to be a busy, exciting week turned into about as quiet a week as could be: all four of Gonzaga’s games canceled and quite a hole left in the schedule.

But if you feared we here at Free Ira Brown wouldn’t have anything to talk about, we both congratulate you on not having much to worry about in your life and also say: fret not! Gonzaga may not have played any of their four scheduled games last week, but that won’t stop us from reviewing them.

Of course, we spend much of our time examining Gonzaga’s next major opponent, the third-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes and their star center Luka Garza. Among the nation’s statistical leaders in several categories, the senior will be a nightmare to defend (and, if you’re Chris, pronounce). We’ll run through Gonzaga’s options on both ends of the floor (will Strawther and Harris be back?) and how we might go about slowing down the most productive player we’ve seen since Zion.

And finally, before we have a little fun by re-casting some of the most well-known holiday TV and movie roles with WCC personalities, we are lucky enough to get a new holiday tune: A visit from the patron saint of Gonzaga Christmas.

All that and more on the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do come kill some time with us, won’t you?
