Hemmingson watch party

Students celebrate the Zags dancing through last year's March Madness tournament at a game watch in the Hemmingson Center.

Kennel Club will host a game watch in Cataldo for the Gonzaga men’s basketball Sweet 16 game tonight.

The Cataldo Globe Room can accommodate up to 400 people, so seats will be first come first serve, according to an email sent out by Kennel Club junior representative, Will Foley.

Tipoff is set for 7:07 p.m. and will be broadcasted on TBS. Doors to the watch party open at 6 p.m.

The No. 4-seeded Zags advanced to the Sweet 16 last Saturday with a nail-biting 90-84 win over Ohio State. The Zags will face the No. 9-seeded Florida State Seminoles this Thursday.

Game watches for last year’s Sweet 16, Elite Eight, and Final Four were held in the Hemmingson Center, while the championship game watch was held in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Previous game watches were also open to the public, while the game watch today seems to only be an option for GU students. Kennel Club previously hosted a game watch celebration in Cataldo in the fall, for a game versus Villanova. The team lost that game, 88-72.  

It was not mentioned where the game watches for future games will be held, should the Zags continue to dance.

Kennel Club hopes students will come to the game watch and cheer on the Zags with friends, according to the email.

It was funny to listen to all the amazing quarterbacks Donivine and Kris laugh about having to put their hotel key card in a slot to use their lights in their hotel rooms. We shared stories and will have lunch later this week. We're going to play our first NFL cornhole boards game tomorrow. Donivine and Kris are enjoying the experiences of Europe and bringing it back to the States. There's something they also brought to Europe, and it's the fun game of cornhole, with few straightforward rules and an opportunity for everyone to be a champion.
