Gonzaga completed one of its objectives against a Pac-12 opponent and fellow West Coast power Arizona, ending a three-game losing streak to the Wildcats last Saturday in Los Angeles.Now comes the opportunity for the eighth-ranked Bulldogs (8-0) to defeat another Pac-12 team and regional rival Washington (4-3) in a matchup at Gonzagas McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday at 11 p.m. ET.The programs are separated by only 279 miles from Seattle to Spokane. Despite that, it was a long time coming for a home-and-home scheduling arrangement to be made.This will be the first meeting between the two programs at one of the home sites since the 2006-07 season. Washington leads the all-time series 29-15 with the last meeting coming in the Bahamas last November as Gonzaga took away an 80-64 victory at the Battle 4 Atlantis.Gonzaga makes a return trip to Seattle next season. The teams will then trade trips in the two years after that.We decided to (renew the series), so were excited about doing it, said Washington coach Lorenzo Romar. Its going to be a great, great atmosphere over there. Theyll come back here the following year and I know itll be a great atmosphere here. I always said that we would renew the series at some point. And now its here.Gonzaga coach Mark Few said the delay in resuming the series (which was finalized two years ago) had to do with the Bulldogs being more in demand to play in events featuring other top non-conference opponents. Romar said at first Washington looked for non-conference games with more national television exposure, but he believes now that the Bulldogs offer that.We always knew we would resume the series, Few said. But our schedules have been full the last few years. We had an opportunity (this season) and both teams were agreeable to playing.Our home-and-homes have been great (with Washington in the past). Certainly when we did play Washington the games were very high intensity, great crowds and great passion. We hope to have that same feeling with the next four years of the series.Adding to the intrigue of the rivalry is the matchup at point guard of former Washington player Nigel Williams-Goss, now with Gonzaga, against freshman NBA prospect Markelle Fultz of Washington.Fultz, who has the potential to be the No. 1 pick overall in the 2017 draft, is averaging 22.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. He is shooting 54 percent from the field and 48.1 percent from 3-point range. He has scored at least 20 points in all but two games.Tremendous talent who can always put his team in a good position, Few said of Fultz.Williams-Goss led Washington in scoring and assists before his departure following his sophomore season in 2014-15. He recently mentioned he transferred to Gonzaga to be part of a winning program and that he believed Washington did not prepare its players to be as successful as they could be.Romars response: Obviously Gonzaga has gone to the tournament 17 straight years, so its a good bet theyre probably going to win and go to the tournament. Totally understand what hes saying. We also have to understand that the two years Nigel was here, especially his second year, was probably the worst two years that weve had.Washington was 33-30 overall with a Pac-12 record of 14-22 when Williams-Goss was with the Huskies. The 14 conference wins were the lowest in a two-year period under Romar, who is in his 15th season as Washingtons head coach.We were probably as dysfunctional as weve been since weve been here, Romar said. If you want to take that time and decide if Washington was the best place to be, it probably wasnt.JaMychal Green Jersey .

Some of the other honorees included Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Bill aand Melinda Gates, Lorne Michaels and Tom Hanks.ddddddddddddPresident Obama spoke for nearly an hour while citing each individual, and introduced Scully by calling him one of baseballs signature sounds. The Commander in Chief jokingly said he considered having Scully announce each recipient instead of him.The ceremony concluded with Obama inviting each individual up to the podium so that he could place the actual Medal of Freedom around their necks while an official narrator offered further words of praise. Scully appeared emotional as he shook Obamas hand and bowed his head while returning to his seat.Scully joined the Dodgers in 1950, when the team was still based in Brooklyn.
