KENNEWICK, Wash. - With a 1:45 tip off time, many Gonzaga fans decided to take a late lunch Thursday to watch the game at bars and restaurants around town.
Dozens of fans piled into The Pub in Kennewick this afternoon to watch the Bulldogs take on the Southern Jaguars.
"Some of the chapter alumni here in the Tri-City area joined up for a "late lunch". Lots of TV's on, good taco special. It's an easy atmosphere to come enjoy some March Madness," said Gonzaga graduate Derrick Stricker.
Gonzaga's six-point win was probably a little closer than most fans would like but you can bet they will be gathering again on Saturday when the Zags face Wichita State.
