Richard Fox thinks that the impact of losing Anton Watson will surpass that of losing Drew Timme by a significant margin.

Some players possess a unique blend of skill and influence that cannot be duplicated. Last year, Drew Timme epitomized this notion as the top scorer in Gonzaga men’s basketball history. Beyond his offensive prowess, his confidence and relentless drive to win set him apart. Losing a player of his caliber is a daunting challenge due to his distinctive qualities and contributions.

However, Graham Ike unexpectedly stepped up to the plate this season, proving himself a formidable force in the post and earning recognition as an All-American honorable mention. While his playing style differs from Timme’s, Ike’s offensive impact was nearly as significant.

Yet, replacing a player like Anton Watson presents an even greater hurdle. Over his five seasons at Gonzaga, Watson has been hailed as the team’s problem-solver on both offense and defense. His departure will leave a considerable void that may prove more challenging to fill than Timme’s absence.

According to Richard Fox on an episode of Gonzaga Nation, Watson’s legacy and contributions to Gonzaga will be sorely missed, with his departure potentially having a more profound impact than Timme’s exit. Fox delved into Watson’s impact and more during a discussion with former All-American Dan Dickau on a recent Gonzaga Nation episode.
