The City of Spokane’s beloved Zags have made it to the NCAA National Championship! Spokane is buzzing with excitement for tonight’s final match up against the University of North Carolina.
For most Spokane citizens this season has been a dream come true. The bulldogs had an amazing year winning 37 of their 38 games. They were the last remaining undefeated team, ranked No. 1 on the AP Top 25 Poll for four consecutive weeks, won their 20th regular season title, won their 15th WCC tournament title, and earned their 19th consecutive NCAA tournament bid. In addition, Gonzaga coach Mark Few was named the Naismith Coach of the Year for the first time. This record breaking season ends tonight after 40 minutes of basketball!
In the spirit of competition, Spokane Mayor David Condon has challenged Chapel Hill, North Carolina Mayor Pam Hemminger. The city with the losing team will have to change their social media profile pictures to the other school’s mascot. In addition, that mayor will have wear the winning team’s t-shirt and post a photo to social media.
Best of luck, to the Zags as they take on UNC today! Please do not make Mayor Condon wear Carolina Blue.
