Dave Boling of the News Tribune chips in with his take on this year's team.

Boling, author of "Tales from the Gonzaga Bulldogs Locker Room," doesn't really offer anything new to the everyday faithful here but he has a nice way to say it. He does not view the Zags through the Emerald City visual film of those a bit North.


It’s hard to unequivocally proclaim this the best Zags team ever, going back to the 1999 Elite Eight club that got this streak started.
But it’s fair to view this as the least fallible roster in that long line, the club least vulnerable to an early ouster, the least likely to fall short of its potential.

The Zags are the only team in the nation in the top five in offensive efficiency (No. 2) and defensive efficiency (No. 1). As Bilas pointed out, there’s little argument this is the best defensive team they’ve ever had.

Where is he getting his offensive and defensive efficiency numbers?

Boling was the beat writer for the Zags a # of years back when he worked for the Spokesman-Review. Has a different perspective.
