View Full Version : Bilas Top 68

02-07-2013, 07:32 AM
Jay ranks the top 68 teams in an Insider story in ESPN (http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/8922612/ranking-68-best-teams-nation-college-basketball) and rates the Zags as follows:
7. Gonzaga Bulldogs (Previous ranking: 9)

Gonzaga is the best team in its league, and it simply isn't close. The Zags will still face some "crusade" and "storm the court" games in the West Coast Conference and can certainly have a slipup or two, but the challenge is to stay sharp and keep getting better while rolling. Mark Few's offense is truly elite, and Gonzaga has five players who can score 20 or more in a game. The depth and size of this team screams BCS, and the basketball IQ of this team is really high. It is simply a pleasure to watch Gonzaga play. This team is Final Four worthy. Rated as the fifth-best offense in the country, Gonzaga is proficient from inside the arc, and is hardly a team that has to hit 3s to win. This team can attack your strength with its strength. This team is a heavyweight.

High praise from Bilas!

Agree. And it's no small thing. Bilas has been critical of our weaknesses in the past, I've become indignant, only to find out that he's proven correct.

This is very encouraging.

I respect Jay's opinion more than most (Digger, cough, Digger), so I'll take it.
