SPOKANE, Wash. – Wear your Zags swag and join the Spokane community as we welcome back the Gonzaga University men’s basketball team with a Homecoming Rally on the Foley Center lawn starting at 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 5.

The Gonzaga basketball team and coaches will all be there to celebrate with the Spokane community. Fans are encouraged to wear red, white and blue and come to campus to welcome the team home.

“Today is a historic moment for Gonzaga University and for Spokane. We are so grateful to our community and all of Zag Nation for your unwavering support of our unbelievable men’s team,” said Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh. “Playing in the National Championship game is an incredible accomplishment for any program. Congratulations to the players, to Coach Mark Few, to the coaching staff, and to everyone who has believed in our Zags all along. We share this with all of you.”

During the rally, Gonzaga and members of the greater Spokane community will honor the Bulldogs for their history-making season. Attendees will hear from President McCulloh, Coach Few and some of the players.

The 2016-2017 season featured a school-record 37 wins with just two losses, GU’s first-ever trip to the Final Four and the first national championship game appearance in program history.
