Gonzaga is the hot item for college basketball collectors
They may not have made it to the Final Four, but Gonzaga is the hot item for college basketball collectors as the NCAA championships gear up this weekend. The Spokane, Washington school nearly upset Connecticut to reach the Final Four. Despite their loss, however, the Bulldogs are this year's hot item, much the same way that unheralded Valparaiso was last year. For more information -- and requests for collectibles with the Gonzaga name -- write to the university at 502 E. Boone Ave., Spokane, Wash., 99258-1774.
