SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Bulldog Madness has certainly swept the Northwest, and now it’s growing even bigger.

The Bulldogs’ big man Kelly Olynyk is featured on the cover of the March 25 issue of Sports Illustrated.

KREM 2 caught up with Olynyk in Salt Lake City as he prepared for GU’s first game of the NCAA Tournament. He lit up as soon as we mentioned the cover.

“Not in my wildest dreams did I think I would be on the cover of a magazine. It’s a crazy thing I was blessed with. I’ll take it with a grain of salt. I thought it was pretty cool,” he said.

Olynyk is featured on one of four covers featuring college ball players of the tournament. This is the fifth time the magazine has featured a Zag.
