The depth and balance on this team is something to behold. Gonzaga is college basketball’s only team that is in the top five nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency and adjusted defensive efficiency. The Bulldogs sit at the No. 1 spot on KenPom.com, a rankings system that rates a team’s offense and defense based on points scored and allowed per possession. They also currently sit at No. 6 in the nation in RPI.

That’s the statistical fact that Gonzaga critics need to grasp: numbers back this team’s success.

This is a group that passes the eye test, passes the mathematical tests, and is hungry for a deeper run in March. If there’s ever been a Gonzaga team that could accomplish such a feat, it’s this one.
