Jay Bilas reminds basketball fans how to pronounce ‘Gonzaga’
It’s a pet peeve of all Bulldogs fans.
Despite their multiple NCAA tournament appearances and 31-0 record, some people just cannot seem to properly pronounce “Gonzaga.”
ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas put out a message on Monday telling people to learn it once and for all.
“It’s Gon-ZAG-uh, not Gon-ZOG-uh. They’re called the ‘Zags.’ If it were Gon-zog-uh, they’d be called the ‘Zogs,'” he said in a Twitter video. “They’ve been kicking everyone’s a** for 20 years, get it right.”
Thank you, Jay.
The Zags will compete in their second NCAA Championship game Monday night against Baylor. Tipoff is 6:20 p.m.
