Gonzaga moves toward destiny as NCAA Champions Tonight!Scottsdale AZ, Monday, 3 APRIL 2017, Polish-born Przemek Karnowski will center Gonzaga University's Division I Basketball team with all of Poland offering their prayers in their quest for America's NCAA Championship. For those of you in Poland and the USA, Gonzaga is a Jesuit University founded in 1887 named for Saint Aloysius. The campus is situated along the Spokane River in the State of Washington. The school borders a heavily wooded area no doubt reminiscent of the great forests in Poland.The strength inherent in the trunk of the tallest tree will be present on the floor by Przemek Karnowski.

Visit Gonzaga for a virtual tour, the history of a Liberal Arts University, campus, admissions and the Mission Statement, etc. Gonzaga has grown as a legitimate basketball team on par with the largest universities who are named to the tournament. It is shocking to see the school has a student population of only 7572 with 5160 undergraduates.
Go Bulldogs, Whew! Gonzaga moves on toward their destiny to the NCAA Championship Monday by defeating solid South Carolina in a nail -biting one-point April Fool's Day semi-final.
I can scarcely believe it has been 18 years when Coach Mark Few began a program at this little known Catholic University. They were not the biggest team (lacking any player close to 7' tall) in that first tournament, but they are the hard-nosed team that never gave up. Today, the Bulldogs’ 7-footers, senior Polish-born Przemek Karnowski and freshman Zach Collins block shots and control rebounds.
They embody Bulldog tag and captured the imagination of the nation. The following 18 years they upset the giants in their bracket. Gonzaga will overcome the perennial favorite in North Carolina that suffered a heart-breaking loss to Villanova in last year's National Championship.
Look for these Bulldogs to nip their way past the Tar Heels. This year the team I chose with my heart over mind has made it. Unfortunately, there was no office pool to place my money.
