Friends of Spike was launched in spring 2022 with the vision and goal of bringing NIL support to all student-athletes at Gonzaga University. Led by former Zag basketball standouts Matt Santangelo and Shaniqua Niles, the collective has already brokered deals for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Past engagements have featured Chet Holmgren and Drew Timme and included youth basketball clinics, charity golf tournaments and watch parties.
