The Keion Bell Show

Gonzaga vs Pepperdine
Despite his best efforts and Gonzaga’s inability to stop him in the second half, Keion Bell did not walk away with the win.

I’ve come to the conclusion that what I like best about this year’s Gonzaga players is their ability to bounce back from subpar and bad games. Although I would really prefer that they not have bad games, I realize that’s not realistic. And when one player is having an off night, another player steps up his game and delivers for Gonzaga.

I’m not sure that this is the most talented or even my favorite Gonzaga team ever, but I do think that this is the most impressive. I wasn’t sure what to expect with a team so loaded with young players but when I watch them, I forget that it’s underclassmen on the court.

As for tonight’s game, Gonzaga should have won by a larger margin. The nucleus of Bouldin, Gray, and Harris will take them far, but not if they don’t clamp down on defense and improve their free throw shooting. It’s ok to have lapses and flounder at the line against WCC teams, but they won’t rack up the wins in the NCAA tournament.

With that being said, the game belonged to Keion Bell. Actually the second half belonged to Keion Bell. He was on fire and had a very impressive performance.

Here’s a Keion Bell dunk from Midnight Madness. Hopefully we’ll see him in the NBA Slam Dunk competition.

Here are some post-game news clips. It sounds like the coaches got to the players before the media did.
