GU Men's Basketball v Saint Mary's

January 23, 2015  •  1 Comment

Gonzaga took on their rivals, Saint Mary's, at home on January 22nd. This was the first time the Zags played the Gaels at home while school was in session in the last 3 years - sparking a lot of interest from students. Students had to first line up for tickets, and then line up for a tenting position. Gonzaga's tenting system is a sight to see: The Kennel Board (Gonzaga's student section leaders) tweets out a location on campus for students to run to in order to secure their tenting position for the game the following day. Then the students tent overnight, and then wait in line to get into the game in order to get a spot as close to the court as possible. Here are some photos from both the tent distribution and the game:
