What Zag Fans Are *Really* Thinking During Basketball Games

Sacrificing dinnertime. Sprinting around campus. Loss of sleep. Traveling in large groups. Yes, the Men’s and Women’s Gonzaga Basketball teams do all of these things…but so does Zag Nation. We pride ourselves on being the sacrificing, energetic and diehard fans we are. We are the cream filling to the Oreo; the Ying twin to the Yang twin; the Instagram selfie to the Kardashians…the Kennel wouldn’t be the same without us.

So before (most of us) say goodbye to cheering at Gonzaga basketball games for the 2014-2015 season and gear up to cheer, laugh, cry and perhaps even perform a ritual jig in front of the big screen that will make your roommate question your existence, we meander down memory lane to the best Zag fan moments throughout the season, taking note on what exactly the crowd was thinking during each game.
