    Default Athletic ranks Zags #1 offense.

    During its current 17-game winning streak, Gonzaga is averaging 90.6 points and has been held below 83 just once.....It's like watching an 18-wheeler operate on a basketball court: A tire might blow out from time to time, but that doesn't slow this vehicle down. If you want to knock this team out of the NCAA tournament, you better be ready to score at least 85 points, because there's no question that Gonzaga will do the same.

    I love watching our offense, it's like poetry in motion at most time.

    Meehan on the Offense: https://www.spokesman.com/stories/20...-balanced-att/

    Coach Michaelson :

    “This year’s team doesn’t have as much of that, just seven really, really good players. They can all score in a variety of ways, and they all complement each other. There’s not much overlap in what each guy does.”

    “You have to play really fast and efficient to even get close (to having seven players in double figures),” Michaelson said. “You have to have an unselfish group and this group is probably near the top with that. You’re not going to have six or seven in double figures averaging 60 points. The (88.5 points per game) is a big part of it.”
    Gonzaga’s offense typically ranks high nationally, but only two teams have had at least five double-figures scorers. The 2017 Zags had five, led by Nigel Williams-Goss at 16.8, and finished 37-2. The 2018 squad, paced by Johnathan Williams’ 13.4, nearly had six, but Silas Melson finished at 9.3. They went 32-5 and reached the Sweet 16.

    Did the 2017 Zags not end up with a 38-1 record because BYU had to forfeit that game that they beat the Zags ?

    So after reading the entire thread, BYU forfeits every game - their losses stay and opponent losses are also vacated so then we did go 37-1 BUT BYU is/was still appealing!!!???
