SPOKANE, Wash. -- Gonzaga University's student center eruped in cheers when the Zags were announced as the no. 1 seed.
"It's pretty exciting, especially to be here with everybody. We've been waiting and hoping for the past the weeks that we would have this seed," student Kayla Rothenbueler said.
Other fans say it's about time, and they couldn't be happier to see the Zags ranked so high.
In other years, the student center is much quieter during Selection Sunday, when students are on spring break. There are sometimes just five or ten students. Today, the place was packed with GU fans.
