Usually I don’t do link dumps, but a lot of noteworthy news has broke the last day or two, so I thought something like this would be fitting. Here’s what is new in the world of the West Coast Conference.

  • Portland is on a tour through Europe, and have been playing some countries respective national teams. Check out there progress in the following links:

  • Priority Gonzaga target Josh Perkins has moved his college announcement date from August 25th to August 24th. Read up on this development here.
  • In a recent study which ranked the attendance of NCAA Men’s Basketball games, BYU was ranked 13th and Gonzaga was ranked 94th. The study only takes in account total attendance, so the small arenas of the WCC are not going to be well represented. This is not something to dwell over too much. For the complete study, click here.
