  • Yeah nothing to discuss.

    They’re the best team in the nation, but the tourney can be dangerous. All it takes is one bad shooting game and you season can be over.

    I think it’s final four or bust for Gonzaga. That’s how high expectations are. Some could argue its championship game or bust.

    Anything less then a National Championship is goona feel dissapointing but final four would definitely be a great accomplishment.

  • Why is GU doing so well? Mark Few.
    Why has GU never won a Championship? Mark Few.
    Coaches win Championships, not players. Its why Duke and North Carolina have so many.

    With the team being stacked with NBA caliber players, Few has no more excuses. I hope they win but I won't be shocked if they don't.

    One of the worst posts I've read on this board. You're insane if you think Few wouldn't have at least one title if he coached a blue blood.

    I'm not so sure it doesn't hurt to have a top recruiting class every year too. Eventhough GU is ranked 1 in the country don't think for a second they have the same talent as a Duke, Carolina, Kentucky or Kansas.

    I'm no fan of Mark Few and they tend to underachieve in the tournament but hard to say he's not an elite coach.

    I thought they had just as good of a shot last year, unfortunately covid cost them a chance.

  • Without Anthony Davis, John Kalipari doesn't have any national titles, and he's considered an elite coach. Kentucky dominated the tourney that year. Tyler Hansbrough got Roy Williams a title at UNC as well. College sports is definitely mostly about players/recruits. The only reason Gonzaga has gotten decent recruits lately is BECAUSE of Mark Few.

    Few should have a championship. He was hosed by the refs in the 2nd half of the 2017 title game. Everyone knows.

    Exactly, also the Zags have not underperformed in the tournament compared to their seed. In fact they have overperformed. I think people have this idea they have been knocked out early a lot which just isn't the case.

  • I takes great coaching plus great talent to cut the nets. Gonzaga has only really been in play for the elite recruits over the last 5 years or so. I don't think it's fair to say Few has held this team back in any respect ... he built a top 5 program from nothing in a garbage conference. It's unprecedented and I don't think can every be duplicated.

    10 years ago, it was a top 15 program. Still impressive, but not a final-4 program. It is now. Mark Few did that, no one else.

  • Championship game was a great game last night. I hope everyone was able to catch it. BYU couldn't miss in the first half and led by 12 at the break. Kispert came out blazing in the second half and Suggs sealed the win with some huge shots in the end plus outstanding defense as well. Special player I wish we could have him another year that wasn't so affected by covid restrictions.

  • Women's final crazy as well. Buzzer beater with under 1 second from Jill Townsend who then had to go to the bench and throw up.

    On the men's game --- they were guarding the 7 footers in the post with guards and using their length to disrupt the ball action and entry passes. Kind of brilliant. BYU is going to win games in the tourney. I think they're a real shot to play in the second weekend.

  • Gonzaga needed that kind of game from last night. They’ve been blowing opponents out for so long, they needed a true test. Even a loss there wouldn’t have been that bad for them.

    I think it’s championship or bust for them. They are clearly the best team in the country. Sure there are 64 teams in the field, but there are only about 7 or 8 real contenders and then probably a team or two that will surprise. Anything short of the final four is a failure. I think they finally have the team to win it all. They are a bit weak inside and an athletic team could give them some issues. As a UW fan, I won’t be rooting for them but it’s only a matter of time til they win the championship.

    I honestly thought they were headed in the right direction with Hopkins.

    Most everyone thought they were heading in the right direction after Hop’s first two seasons.

    I like Hop and think he is a good coach, but not sure he knows how to build a team. He was successful his first two seasons here, but those were with Romar’s recruits. He is yet to show he can win with his own guys. He has really struggled recruiting the local kids, which is what separates UW from most other mid tier programs. It isn’t a secret how to succeed at UW, recruit the local kids and pull a few kids from out of state.

    I kind of gave him a pass last season with Green going ineligible. The team was rolling up until then. But I was really discouraged when he missed on this past recruiting class. It was considered one of the best in a long time and he was only able to land Jackson Grant. He needed to hit on that class, he didn’t. Now the coaching staff likely has to look at transfers.

    Hop will likely be back next season. I think if UW can finish somewhere around middle of the conference next season, he will keep his job. Another season near the bottom, then he should be gone.

  • I think it’s a pretty nice draw for Gonzaga. Would be surprised if they don’t reach the final four.

    The one team that could give them issues would be Creighton. They can really score and have some great players.

    I will most likely have Zags winning in all in my bracket.

  • I think the Zags have a decent draw as well. I also think they are the best team in college basketball this season and I'm not sure it's close.
    I think they win it all this year but it's one and done so who knows. That's what I love about March madnes.

  • How about that Ayayi pass off the backboard to Suggs for the alley-oop slam! Last time I remember enjoying that was when Payton put the ball up off the glass for Kemp a bunch of times in the 90s.

    Fun first round, and plenty of upsets!

    That pass by Ayayi for the dunk by Suggs was pretty awesome! Loved it! I think thats the first time I have seen a play like that in the tournament. It helps when your up by 30 though lol.

  • Suggs still making some amazing plays, but also stupid turnovers and forced shots. He also needs to stop leading his drives with his arm, too many damn fouls. I almost think he could use another year at college but that's not happening he's too talented to stick around.

  • Yeah, this is unreal. Number 5 ranked recruit in the nation. Huge committment on the level of Suggs. Not saying he is as good but the level of recruits we get now is insane and the number one recruit for this class (Chet Holmgren) is rumored to be a heavy Zag lean too!

    All eight teams looked to struggle offensively yesterday, that it seemed refreshing to see both teams scoring at will during the opening 5-10 minutes. Even when Gonzaga stepped-up and shut them down, I feel as though Creighton would have exploded on every team that had played. Not a bad look for the Zags.

  • Interesting game -- Creighton did everything they could to shut down Kispert and (for a while) Timme, so left Ayayi and Nembhardt wide open .... that didn't work. Eventually Timme and Watson got going, and Suggs his usuall rediculous lasers ..... not fair.

    Basically, Creighton's game plan worked but it didn't matter.

  • Gonzaga needs to turn them over with on ball pressure. Get some run outs and fast break points. If this is a half court game USC can win with all the length they have. USC has been on a tear from three we must bother their shooters as well. Biggest test this season but I believe they will be up to it.

    They basically won the game in the first five minutes because of all those steals. They established that large lead and never looked back.

  • Wow, that was an insane game. UCLA hit contested jumper after contested jumper. Yet the Zags kept hitting easy lay up after easy lay up and hit some big shots down the stretch. That Suggs shot to win the game is an all timer.
