Welcome to the best day of the year. Better than Christmas, better than your birthday (or anyone's birthday), it's the first full day of the NCAA Tournament. Hopefully, you're not doing anything terribly constructive at work this morning and are rather streaming the games on your computer.
We've gone basketball crazy here at the Inlander
pretty much since the season began, and you can check out all of our basketball coverage at inlander.com/madness
for player profiles and updates for both Gonzaga and Eastern Washington.
I'll be heading to Seattle in the morning to cover the Zags' first round game against North Dakota State and Inlander
contributor Howie Stalwick is already on the ground in Portland for the Eagles matchup against Georgetown.
In the meantime, take a look at our profile of Kevin Pangos
, a heart-warming story about EWU's Parker Kelly and his dad
, a rundown of the Zag women's draw
in the NCAA tournament and then check back very soon for a preview of tonight's EWU-Georgetown game.
