Gonzaga AD Mike Roth responds

Every news outlet in the state has been trying to get ahold of Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth and coach Mark Few.
The school just issued this statement from Roth.
“In light of the recent reports out of Seattle Wednesday regarding renewing the Gonzaga-Washington men’s basketball rivalry, I did receive a proposal late Tuesday from Washington.
“I have always been of the opinion this is a good game for both schools, a good game for the state of Washington and a good game for basketball in the Pacific Northwest.
“At the same time, it is a series that should be equitable for both schools. I have always believed it is a game best played on the two campuses because of the great college basketball atmosphere in both campus venues.
“The renewal of this series is something that will be decided by the two athletic directors and the two head basketball coaches in private discussions.”
