Gonzaga Grandma Becomes Viral Star

Dubbed “Gonzaga Grandma,” she immediately became an Internet star.

During No. 4-seeded Gonzaga’s first-round victory over No. 13-seeded UNC Greensboro on Thursday, an elderly woman in the Zags section went viral after being spotted on the TNT broadcast late game in the game. Gonzaga freshman guard Zach Norvell Jr. hit a clutch three with 21 seconds left to snap a 64-64 tie and put the Zags ahead for good. The woman was seen celebrating the shot by pointing her arms to the sky and mouthing “Thank you, Father.”

With the Bulldogs in the same region as other heavy-hitters such as Xavier, Michigan and North Carolina, they could probably use their matriarchal good luck charm for the rest of their tournament run.
