Gonzaga trailed for a grand total of 79 minutes this season

Time for another totally unimpressive stat on how good this team is. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are sitting pretty at 29-1 as they head into the West Coast Conference Tournament looking for an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament and a potential No. 1 seed. The Zags may no longer be ranked the top team in the nation, but that doesn’t mean they still aren’t one of the best, if...

Gonzaga gets zero respect

If this team needs a chip on its shoulder, it isn’t hard to find one. After losing to the BYU Cougars at home, the Gonzaga Bulldogs tumbled all the way to No. 4 in the latest AP/Coaches polls. This in itself is not shocking. UCLA leapfrogged the Zags thanks to winning in Tuscon, that much is fair. Villanova lost at home to Butler, but everyone knows Villanova is good. Them standing...

Was Gonzaga’s loss this weekend good for its NCAA Tournament hopes?

So much for the feel-good story of the NCAA basketball season. The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ quest for an undefeated season went bye-bye with a home loss to BYU on Saturday night. But, could that loss actually be the thing that helps Gonzaga to its ultimate goal — a national championship? History certainly suggests that an undefeated regular season means very little come

College Basketball Rankings: Gonzaga tumbles to No. 4 following loss to BYU

The question wasn’t when, it was just how far they would fall. The Gonzaga Bulldogs fell to No. 4 in the latest AP top 25, released on Monday, Feb. 27. The Zags fell from No. 1, where they had enjoyed the luxuries of being the top team in the nation for four-straight weeks. Kansas is the new No. 1 team, securing 58 first place votes. Villanova remained at No. 2, and UCLA jumped...

Top 25 REWIND: Top-ranked Gonzaga to fall after loss to BYU

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Top-ranked Gonzaga had an undefeated regular season in its sights, facing a 20-point underdog in the final game at The Kennel. Instead of racing toward history, the Zags fell flat, losing 79-71 to Brigham Young on Saturday night. The undefeated season is history. So is Gonzaga's No. 1 ranking, possibly its No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, too. Now the Zags...

The loss to BYU meant everything and absolutely nothing at the same time

We got spoiled this season while looking at the bigger picture. Last night, the BYU Cougars rolled into The Kennel on Senior Night and cruelly snatched the Gonzaga Bulldogs dreams of a perfect season away. Or.... Last night, the BYU Cougars rolled into the Kennel on Senior Night and upset the Gonzaga Bulldogs, giving some bad memories of 2015 bubbling to the surface. In a weird...

Big underdog BYU ruins No. 1 Gonzaga's undefeated season

No NCAA men’s basketball team will go undefeated this season. The No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs were the last perfect team left, and they were 29-0 heading into Saturday’s West Coast Conference regular-season finale against the unranked BYU Cougars (20-10) at home. However, BYU had had great success in Spokane recently, winning their last two games there against Gonzaga. That trend...

Przemek Karnowski steadying presence for top-ranked Gonzaga

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) When No. 1 Gonzaga tries to complete an undefeated regular season on Saturday, perhaps no player will be more valuable than center Przemek Karnowski. The 7-foot-1, 300-pound senior is a nearly unstoppable force from close range. He is averaging 12.8 points per game, second on the team, and leads the West Coast Conference with a 68 percent shooting percentage...

Zach Collins: Gonzaga’s success has never been about 1 player

The one-and-done recruiting philosophy in college basketball, where star players head off to the NBA after their freshman season, has yielded mixed results around the country – including in Seattle. But in Spokane, where Gonzaga remains the No. 1 team in the country for the fourth straight week and is poised to make its 18th consecutive NCAA tournament, consistency and a team-first...

Gonzaga play-by-play man talks top-ranked Zags’ depth, impact of Nigel Williams-Goss

When a college basketball program appears in 18 consecutive NCAA Tournaments, it undoubtedly will lay claim to some seriously talented teams. As the Gonzaga Bulldogs gear up for their 19th straight, they also find themselves the top-ranked team in the country and nearing an undefeated regular season. So the question begs to be asked: Is this head coach Mark Few’s best team yet...

Ranking the teams most likely to earn a No. 1 seed in March

For the first time ever, the NCAA Tournament selection committee allowed a peek at the top seeds in this year’s tournament. Of course, they are all subject to change, but the committee thought that allowing an early look provided a level of transparency (and CBS didn’t mind a bunch of eyeballs tuning in mid-afternoon on a February Saturday).Nothing on the top line should have...
