    And I agree with Zagblue, Grad Transfers are seldom top-100 level guys. If/when they are valuable starters on top-10 teams, GU has done about as well as anyone. (Matthews, Wesley,...

    This year, some fans and even writers (Medcalf @ ESPN) suggested that Kansas be crowned the national champs, or at least hang a banner. Heck, they were #1 in Kenpom, #1 in the polls, #1...

    Ignore the idea of “next Gonzaga” - I agree there won’t be one. It’s truly amazing how few of the 26 conferences outside the power-6 have a perennial favorite or dominant team.

    Dang - 3 Arizona losses in 3 consecutive years!

    A bad one in the '14 tournament, and then 2 really close games in '15 and '16.

    I'll italicize out players that I strongly think are going pro right now, or will be very unlikely to want to transfer, sit, and then play. My opinion only:
