NCAA tournament: David Stockton returns to the arena where his father was an NBA legend
"David's unbelievable. He's fearless like John," said Gonzaga coach Mark Few. "He has an incredible innate feel for the game. He can make passes in the smallest of windows that there's nobody on our team capable of doing, and there are very few people in college basketball that can make those plays. He's got a great knack, just like John did, off the ball on defense for making plays."
Stockton may have a legacy to live up to, but the Zags also have some pressure on them as a No. 1 seed from a non-BCS conference. But both just seem to be enjoying the whole experience and are focused on the task at hand.
"Its been a fun ride, and we want to keep it going and take it all the way," said David.
