Gonzaga Graces S.I. Cover Heading Into NCAA Tournament

Sports Illustrated

Jinx?  What jinx?!?!

The Gonzaga Bulldogs standout Kelly Olynyk, along with myriad Zags fans, grace the cover of this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated heading into the first round of the N.C.A.A. Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Good news for hoops fans across the state…  Or, is it?

According to Wikipedia, the Sports Illustrated cover jinx is an urban legend that states that individuals or teams who appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated magazine will subsequently be jinxed (experience bad luck).

The top seed in the Western Region, Gonzaga has only suffered defeat twice this season and are many prognosticators pick to advance to the Final Four.

Will mythology ruin the day, or will Mark Few’s crew finally wear the glass slipper that has eluded them numerous times?

Time will tell.  The Zags open tomorrow against the Southern University Jaguars at the Energy Solutions Center in Salt Lake City.  Tip-off is scheduled for 1:10 P.M. (Pacific)
The winner will advance to the field of 32 and take on the victor of the #8 seed Pittsburgh Panthers and the #9 Wichita St. Shockers.

Make sure to fill out your bracket for your shot at $1 million!
