John Zant, Barry Punzal and John Dvorak


Pups and Players


The Santa Barbara Independent’s sports chieftain, John Zant, and Barry Punzal and John Dvorak, the gents of presidiosports.com, have collectively logged just under a century of professionally watching basketball. Zant recalls turning in his copy fresh off his typewriter in the days when the women’s game was played six-on-six: three forwards and three guards on each side of half-court, which they never crossed. For this week’s cover story, they turn their attention to a high school player who’s headed to the top and a memorable team from 1990. And March Madness approaches with a bracket contest!
