Watch: Gonzaga students mock North Carolina players’ stretching routine
The Gonzaga student section is one of the best in the nation at making opposing players feel uncomfortable, and they came up with yet another unique way of doing that before Wednesday night’s game against North Carolina.
As the Tar Heels were going through their stretching routine, so too were Gonzaga students. In other words, the home fans didn’t even wait until tip-off to ramp up the heckling.

Gonzaga’s administration has tried to crack down on some of the ways students mock opponents in the past, but that was pretty clever. That level of effort is why Gonzaga is considered one of the tougher places in the country to play.
Gonzaga is ranked No. 2 in the nation and defeated North Carolina 94-81. The fan enthusiasm should only increase as the season goes on.
