Gonzaga Wins City Title

It took nearly 50 years but Gonzaga did it. The Eagles captured a Washington city title over the weekend with a win over Dunbar.

Gonzaga Takes Home Title

When it takes you nearly 50 years to win the city championship, you can bet it's a sweet feeling. Last weekend, Gonzaga defeated Dunbar 68-46 to capture the school's first city championship and give veteran coach Dick Myers the title his program sought for such a long time.

Seniors Lorenzo Miles and Luke Owings combined to really make it happen for the Eagles, according to assistant coach Steve Turner.

Miles had 10 points, 3 assists and 6 rebounds in the championship game. "He just looked during the tournament and in our league tournament like he wanted the ball in his hands," Turner said. "He's our leader."

The senior point guard remains uncommitted. Turner said he has offers from Towson, Niagara and Coastal Carolina. He visited Coastal already and averaged 11 points for the year; Gonzaga had 4 kids in double figures.

Owings, a small forward bound for Princeton, had 17 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists in the title game. "He acted like a manchild during our tournament games," Turner said. He was not going to let us lose. He's going to be a very good player at Princeton."
