Eight teams and eight head coaches came to Lake Buena Vista, just outside Orlando, with the Old Spice Classic title in their sights. But if you polled all eight coaches, you might get eight different responses as to what each coach might be looking for in their teams as they prepare for the 2012-2013 season. And while coaches might still be tweaking lineups and game plans, Gonzaga can rest easy, at least tonight, with this year’s title in hand. Led by Elias Harris (24 points) and Kevin Pangos (23), No. 17 Gonzaga ran away from Davidson 81-67 in the Old Spice Classic championship game to remain undefeated on the season. Kelly Olynyk added 14 points for Gonzaga (6-0), which also won the 2008 Old Spice Classic. Davidson (3-3) got 17 points from Nik Cochran, 13 from Jake Cohen and 12 from De'Mon Brooks. Now it’s on to 2013.
