Gonzaga women head into the week tops in the WCC

Bulldogs stand alone in sole possession of first place with a 4-0 record Last week, Gonzaga had the team’s first home games of the conference season, against a pair of teams that were unbeaten in conference play at the time of those games. And just like the first week, the Zags handled business from the opening tip. The first game came against Pepperdine, and the size advantage...

College basketball rankings: Gonzaga climbs up to No. 13

A couple of solid contests has Gonzaga rising. The Gonzaga Bulldogs rose two spots in the latest AP poll, slowing inching their way closer to the top 10. The AP voters named Gonzaga the No. 13 team in the nation. The Zags had a near 50-point demolition of the Portland Pilots on Thursday, then needed to tap into a bit of road juju to defeat the San Francisco Dons on Saturday. This...

Gonzaga vs. Santa Clara: Time, TV schedule, and how to stream online

The Zags look to rebound after a disappointing loss to Saint Mary’s. The beauty of conference play is that you rarely have time to dwell too much on a loss. After dropping one at home to the Saint Mary’s Gaels, the Gonzaga Bulldogs head on the road for a quick trip to Santa Clara to take on the Broncos. This will be the 91st all-time meeting between the two schools, with Gonzaga...

Gonzaga might be second fiddle in the WCC this year and there is nothing wrong with that

Tl;dr it is time for the entire fanbase to admit that Saint Mary’s is actually good. The Gonzaga Bulldogs fanbase is a tough crowd to please. Just ask the Saint Mary’s Gaels. Outside of completely folding as a basketball institution, there isn’t much they can do to impress the Spokane faithful. And rightfully so. There is nothing in the bylaws of college basketball that says we...

Gonzaga women have two tough road battles this week

Road wins over San Diego and BYU would effectively clinch the title Another week, another pair of big wins for Gonzaga women, as the Bulldogs took care of San Francisco and Portland to now have a 17-4 overall record, as well as having a 10-0 WCC record. There were even bigger news regarding the other teams in the league. Saint Mary’s women not only lost to BYU last Thursday, but...

College basketball rankings: Gonzaga climbs to No. 12 in latest AP poll

The Zags continue their slow and steady climb. It honestly is kind of a bummer, because we were this close to seeing two WCC teams potentially in the top 10. The Gonzaga Bulldogs rose to No. 12 in the latest AP poll, and the Saint Mary’s Gaels clocked in at No. 11. Barring a catastrophe at the top of the poll, that isn’t going to happen, considering the two WCC powerhouses play...

How can Gonzaga beat Saint Mary’s on the road

For once in a long while, the road to the championship doesn’t go through Spokane. The Gonzaga Bulldogs find themselves in a weird position this year. Normally, the old adage has been the West Coast Conference championship goes through Spokane. This year? Not so much. Gonzaga heads to Moraga, California, to take on the undefeated (in conference) Saint Mary’s Gaels. If the Zags are...

Bracketology: Trying to Identify Where Gonzaga Currently Stands for March

If the season ended today, where would we see the Zags on Selection Sunday? Let’s face it – things are different this year. The Zags will not be getting a 1-seed come March and won’t be favored to make the Final Four (let alone win the WCC at this point). But that isn’t to say that we have no hope for a deep tournament run. These guys know what it takes to fight in the trenches of...

Gonzaga is officially a top 10 team again

Gonzaga’s non-conference schedule was a good thing and a bad thing

The Zags have an absurdly low RPI all considering, and there is a reason. The Gonzaga Bulldogs, despite being the No. 7 ranked team by Ken Pomeroy, were not among the 16 teams selected to be the top four seeds on Sunday. Now, of course, plenty of that can change. It isn’t like the No. 4 seeds listed there are locked in stone until March. If Gonzaga wins out, the Zags have a solid...

10 Observations from Gonzaga’s win over LMU

24-4 What a night of madness around college basketball, capped off by a delicious loss from Saint Mary’s at USF’s War Memorial Gymnasium. With that loss, Gonzaga now has sole possession of first place in the conference and is in control of its destiny for the WCC tournament. A solid night all around. Here’s what else I took away: The Zags played with a level of aggression and...

Gonzaga Basketball is on the rise with March Madness approaching

With only two games remaining in the regular season for Mark Few’s Gonzaga Bulldogs, it is time to take a critical assessment of the team, who is always a topic of conversation and controversy around NCAA Tournament time. Assuming the #6 ranked Bulldogs make the tournament it will be Few’s 19th consecutive appearance in the dance, adding to one of the most successful resumes in the...

Time for Gonzaga to ruin BYU’s week

For once, the Zags can try and ruin someone else’s Senior Night. If there was ever a thorn in the Gonzaga Bulldogs’ side, it would be the BYU Cougars. In two of the previous three seasons, the Zags rolled into their last game of the regular season, at home, 17-0. In two of the previous three seasons, the BYU Cougars sent the Zags to the conference tournament with a 17-1 record. ...

10 Observations from Gonzaga’s win at San Diego

26-4 It wasn’t always pretty, but the name of the game at this point in the year is Survive and Advance: The officiating was wildly inconsistent throughout the game, but with that said, there was also an entire catalog of silly fouls from Gonzaga. Ill-advised reach-ins and over-aggressive pursuit will lead to crippling fouls in the tournament, and they definitely need to be cleaned...

No questions against BYU as Gonzaga wins, 79-65

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are the 2017-18 regular season champions. The Gonzaga Bulldogs starting five made sure they advance into the WCC Tournament as the No. 1 seed, defeating BYU 79-65 to finish the year as the WCC regular season champions. Although BYU closed the gap a couple of times, Gonzaga grabbed the lead early on and never relinquished. A balanced attack fueled the win, with...

Trying to make some sense of a wild Gonzaga year

The regular season was a roller coaster. Prior to the start of the season, there were a lot of legitimate questions involving the Gonzaga Bulldogs. For as many key players that they retained from last season’s Final Four team, the Zags lost just enough to retain some key question marks to start the season. It was never a question of whether or not the Zags would be good. It was...

Gonzaga falls to No. 7 in latest AP Poll

Despite the two wins, Gonzaga doesn’t rise. The Gonzaga Bulldogs fell from No. 6 to No. 7 in the latest AP Poll despite a week where they won both road games against San Diego and BYU. In a year where the top 25 has been rather turbulent, Week 16 didn’t provide a whole lot of wiggle room to rise up. Virginia and Michigan State remained numbers one and two, with Xavier and Villanova...

Gonzaga is one of the most balanced scoring teams in the nation

If anything, it makes them hard to defend. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are in rarified territory. They are one of (hopefully still) 18 teams that has five players averaging double-digit scoring points. If 18 doesn’t sound that impressive, consider that number is out of 350-plus schools, and then take a look at the other schools in that club: Drexel, Duke, Idaho State, Kansas, Loyola (IL...
