I think last years team had a better chance of a championship due to having more depth in the front court.  There are a lot of good teams in the dance and Gonzaga has only played a couple of them, WVa and BYU. They were behind by 9 at the half last week against BYU and won by 5 in early December against WVA. As always, I worry that their lack of competition against very good teams might hurt their chances. However, they have done well in the few close games and will have to do that to make it to Indy for the Final 4.

Short memory!  Beat Kansas, Virginia and Iowa early in the season.

Agreed about lack of front court depth, after Timme there isn't much there.  But this has to be the best, deepest Zag guard/wing rotation ever, and that's saying something.  I don't think they've ever had a player like Suggs before.  For the most part guards win games, not bigs.

Suggs was also a great HS football player (QB) and received a number of Big-10 football offers.   A lot of the Big-10 coaches believe he would have had an NFL career if he had chosen football over basketball.   SR

O yea, didn't watch them much early until I came over to Idaho where every game is televised.

Still, they went pretty much the entire season without being tested and to me that hurts their chances.

Look at Baylor and the Big 12 with 7 teams in the NCAA, they have had to compete at a high level the entire year.
