Gonzaga head coach Mark Few coaches his players against Arkansas in the first half of their game during the 2022 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship West Regional at Chase Center.

SPOKANE — Prior to becoming a top recruiting target for Mark Few and his coaching staff, Alex Toohey's knowledge of Gonzaga basketball largely centered around two people.

The first of those, John Rillie, would've been fairly predictable. Rillie was the first Australian-born player to sign with the Bulldogs, transferring to Gonzaga from Tacoma Community College in 1992 while Few was an assistant under Dan Fitzgerald.
