Gonzaga basketball will complete an undefeated season with two more regular season wins.

Gonzaga has been atop many top 25’s for the past several weeks as the nation’s lone undefeated team. Mark Few https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/dustin-triano-jersey-c-19.html and the Bulldogs are 28 0 overall and 16 0 in WCC play going into a road game with San Diego on Thursday evening. The Zags have absolutely rolled through the majority of their schedule; only three games have been decided by fewer than 10 points and none have come since the start of conference play. Gonzaga is simply in a class of its own in the West Coast Conference.

However Domantas Sabonis Jersey, does this team have the tools to win it all? Their talented teams of the past have never gotten past the Elite Eight in 17 previous appearances. There is also criticism that the team’s schedule doesn’t test the team enough between late December and March. This is where Gonzaga’s WCC affiliation cuts both ways. It lets a talented team pad it’s record somewhat, but they have to load up on their non conference schedule to compensate for a lack of consistent challengers. Many of the nation’s true blue bloods are hesitant to schedule Gonzaga because they are so consistent and dangerous for a mid major.

It’s easy to lose sight of the program’s ceiling in light of basketball politics. This is maybe Coach Few’s best team ever with talent all over the court. The team is number one overall in the analytic bible that is KenPom. They are 5th in adjusted offense and 2nd on D. Numbers don’t tell the whole story https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/killian-tillie-jersey-c-18.html, but no team outside that site’s final top 10 has ever won the title; UConn was 10th overall for their 2011 run.

With those things in mind https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/zach-collins-jersey-c-17.html, we will break down why Gonzaga could win it all this year.
