I followed with interest the "demise" of the Zags on several other boards, particularly after GU dropped 3 straight in conference (but also when the Zags' OOC record dipped to 4-5).

Here's how the 2nd half of the WCC CONFERENCE season played out.

Gonzaga -- 2 home games -- 5 away games; 7 wins - 0 losses
St. Mary's - 5 home games -- 2 away games; 5 wins - 2 losses
USF Dons - 4 home games -- 3 away games; 5 wins - 2 losses
Portland -- 4 home games -- 3 away games; 3 wins - 4 losses
SCU -- 4 home games -- 3 away games; 3 wins - 4 losses
Pepperdine-- 2 home games -- 5 away games; 2 wins - 5 losses
San Diego -- 5 home games -- 2 away games; 2 wins - 5 losses
LMU Lions -- 2 home games -- 5 away games; 1 win - 6 losses

Yes, it's true that the first half of the season did happen -- but I'm glad the Zags had their rough patch early, rather than late (and that they could do it -- and did it -- on the road).

Gonzaga is continuing to gel, and I'm looking forward to following their progress at the WCC tourney, and in the post-season. Go Zags !!!

The fact that they did this while away from MAC for all but 2 games was the most amazing part of this come back. For this reason, I feel like it was legit and Gonzaga's going to have no problem playing in Vegas.

ditto......Thanks for the information GoZags. It's nice to see it right there in front of you. That 7-0 looks beautiful. And then to see the #5 under Road victories, is just awesome, man. It was truly an incredible journey that most people outside of the WCC would never appreciate because our conference is so undervalued. The Zags have the fire, folks, and it's burning HOT now.

Thanks for the post, good stuff. After a 4-3 1st half of conference play the Zags finished strong in the 2nd half with that 7-0 run, mostly on the road. This shows me the Zags have improved. The Zags are playing with more confidence and their best may be yet to come.

Personally I am going crazy with anticipation. I think they should have a 60 game season and have a 30 minute game every other night.

Important post GZ. Puts some perspective on things.
It's the time of the year when teams progressively gel. We should have beat Memphis too. Not in the cards that day.
WCC tournament is a "must win". Hope this time off doesn't generate some "rust". 2 more games to win if this comeback is to be sustained.

Again GZ...nice data. Thanks!

The new "king" of the WCC, SMC, has taken 2 of the last 5 from GU. It gets worse for them if you go back further. If GU happens to take them in the WCC tourney, GU would have won 4 of the last 6 games with SMC.


To truly win the throne, they must slay the dragon more than a couple of times in two years.


Nice post GoZags

Very interesting stats right there. This team has really come a long way from the beginning of the year.
