Raftery is great! I love his corny sound bites. I didn't think he was biased at all towards St. Johns (and I was rooting hard for Gonazaga) He was very complementary towards Gonzaga and called Mark Few one of the best five coaches in the country (he's right...Few is amazing). He was raving all game about Gonzaga's passing and rebounding too.
As far as talking about St. Johns at the end of the game...that team had a great season: all those seniors and the new coaching staff deserved some props for turning that thing around and coming out of nowere in the Big East. Remeber Freddie and ISU got similar love from anouncers all the time this year...even when we lost big. I don't have a problem with anouncers talking about how great a season the losing team had. Its respectful.
