SPOKANE, Wash. — It was a heartbreaking night for Spokane and beyond as Gonzaga fell to Baylor in the NCAA Championship. But in true Zags fashion, people were there to pick each other up.

“Only the very best make it to the title game, and our [Gonzaga Bulldogs] made us proud every step of the way,” tweeted Gonzaga president Thayne McCulloh. “Thank you all for supporting the Zags throughout this incredible season!”

Former Zags point guard Dan Dickau said he couldn’t be more proud of the team. “31-1. Nothing to be ashamed of,” he tweeted.

Even the Association of Jesuit Colleges & Universities, based all the way out in Washington, D.C. showed their love for the Zags.

Spokane City Council chimed in and showed their support for the hometown team.

Washington State Department of Transportation tweeted, “They fought tough and will be back here again next year. Team should be extremely proud of what they accomplished. Congrats on an incredible season.”
