    This game is a huge deal with Iowa at no 3 and Garza odds on for POY with a Wooden Award in the offing. Iowa’s been playing games and we have not. If we come out strong and win by a decent margin, we’ll be odds on for a title for at least 2 months. Then Comes March and who knows!!!

    Here's a pretty informative article from the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sport...960_story.html

    Top-ranked Gonzaga returns to practice as No. 3 Iowa awaits

    NE, Wash. — In a way, Mark Few feels like No. 1 Gonzaga is starting over.

    The Bulldogs finally got back on the court to practice this week following a two-week break due to COVID-19 cases within the program.

    It looked like the first practice of the year to the Gonzaga head coach.

    “We were able to get together last night. It looked like our first practice in the fall, balls going everywhere and people leaning over and grabbing their shorts because they were gassed,” Few said Thursday.

    “I just tell you this is probably, in the 20 years I’ve been coaching, the biggest challenge I’ve faced as a head coach,” Few said.
    But while Luka Garza is a major concern for the Bulldogs, Few is more worried about the shape of his own team after two weeks of no practices. The first full squad practice for Gonzaga since the day before the Baylor game was scheduled for Thursday.

    “To use the term monumental challenge would be doing a disservice,” Few said. “There’s a conditioning factor we’re trying to get up to speed. There’s a timing and rhythm and execution issues involved in basketball that are obviously a big concern, and really when you play the way we play that’s a huge part of who we are.”

    Few also pointed to the mental toll of the layoff on the players, who have mostly been isolated in their rooms since early December.

    “It’s not easy,” he said. “They want to play. Their whole lives are about playing basketball.”
