Once again, the Kings of the West!
Once again, the Kings of the West!

For all who spent time trashing Gonzaga throughout the season: In your face, haters.

There are two constants in life — Kansas always wins the Big 12 and Gonzaga always wins the West Coast Conference. Never forget that.

The Zags might have lost some games along the way, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, which is a lesson the Cats have put to good practice this season.

Just when you think the ol' dog is ready to take a dirt nap, he jumps up and bites you. Woe to you, Gaels.
