Gonzaga was named as “one of the 12 teams that can win it all” in a recent article published on ESPN.
I do this exercise every season and, for one, my list is almost always a lot smaller than 12 (this season is no exception) and Gonzaga isn’t on mine this year.
Thing is, it doesn’t feel like I’ve been negative on Gonzaga at all this season. In fact, it seemed to me like I was more positive about the Bulldogs than most early on. My opinion on them hasn’t really changed, however.
I haven’t seen much development with Gonzaga this season and that isn’t a huge problem but to me, this isn’t a team that will beat Villanova; it won’t beat Michigan State, or Virginia, or Duke, or Xavier, or even Arizona.
Against anybody else, it has a shot. It can also very easily lose to anybody else. But I don’t think you can get away with winning a national championship without having to play any of those teams above.
Gonzaga is a really good team, one of the 16 best in the country but whether it gets to the Sweet Sixteen is still very much up to chance. And it just isn’t good enough to beat the best. It it is a four or a five seed and has to face the one in the Sweet Sixteen, that will be the end.
San Diego Toreros
San Diego has just been average in the West Coast Conference at .500. But the Toreros have played some good teams tough, leading me to believe they are actually one of the best five teams in the conference.
USD held Gonzaga to 41 percent shooting when it went to the Kennel, which didn’t happen by accident. The Zags didn’t shoot poorly from three and only turned it over nine times. San Diego’s interior defense was legit.
It has also lost twice to Saint Mary’s but by a combined ten points. Those three games, if nothing else, tell me what I need to know about San Diego — that it can compete with the best.
