Getting to the second weekend isn’t an achievement to be taken lightly, regardless of how often a team may make a Sweet 16 appearance. In the case of No. 2 Gonzaga, Sunday’s win over No. 7 Iowa means that the Bulldogs are headed to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2009.
And in this video recorded by junior forward Kyle Wiltjer, it’s clear that Gonzaga’s thrilled to be making the trip to Houston. Eric McClellan does a backflip, followed by head coach Mark Few doing what looks to be an attempted handstand that winds up being a cartwheel.
