With that kind of team success, trying to find playing time for underclassmen can be a tough task, but Dranginis has played in all but two of Gonzaga's games (Averaging ten and a half minutes, and three points).
He hasn't made it onto the court at the NCAA Tournament yet, but says he'll be ready when they need him.
"I'm really excited to actually get out there and play on that NCAA court, and I did get a chance to watch last year, and it looks like an amazing experience. I mean growing up as a kid, that's all you watch, and it's just your dream and to have it come true is just an awesome feeling," said Dranginis.
Gonzaga meets Wichita State Saturday night at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Tip time is 6:40 pm (MTN) and you can watch it all on TNT.
