77 | Mark Few and Gonzaga Final Four Bound?


To date, Mark Few and the Gonzaga Bulldogs has only made it to the Elite 8 in the Men's Tournament, never past.  Today they have a chance to make it to the Final Four, but first they must defeat Duke and Coach K.  If Coach K loses, he will be 11-3 in the Elite 8, if he wins, he will be 12-2.   That said, let us examine some Mark Few Curiosities.
  • Mark = 4+1+9+2 = 16/25
  • Few = 6+5+5 = 16
  • Mark Few = 32/41
  • Mark = 13+1+18+11 = 43
  • Few = 6+5+23 = 34
  • Mark Few = 77
In Gonzaga's last game, they finished with 74 points, possibly a tribute to Few's "Oregon" origins.
  • Oregon = 15+18+5+7+15+14 = 74
Interestingly enough, today's date has related numerology.
  • 3/29/15 = 3+29+15 = 47
Making matters more interesting, Coach K was born in the year '47.

Let us look at Mark Few's life numbers.
  • 12/27/1962 = 1+2+2+7+1+9+6+2 = 30
  • 12/27/62 = 12+27+62 = 101
This is Mark Few's 26th season with the Gonzaga Bulldogs, will it be a special one?  Sports Illustrated from weeks past gave us a hint of a Gonzaga vs Kentucky Championship- we will see if it is to be.
