Son Of John Stockton Shines In Big Gonzaga Win

Things appeared momentarily bleak for perennial NCAA powerhouse Gonzaga University in the WCC tournament. Underdog Santa Clara had them tied up late with designs of upsetting the Bulldogs when the son of NBA legend and Hall of Famer John Stockton would take over the key possession to win the game.

Fans of basketball in Utah will recall another college basketball game winning layup, when Danny Ainge upended Notre Dame in eerily similar fashion when viewed side-by-side.

 

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to ask John Stockton about son David, if he thought his son’s basketball career would go anywhere. In typical Stock fashion, the former Utah Jazz point guard would say only “We’ll see. We’ll see.”

Well, John, we certainly liked what we saw last night.
