We played Gonzaga once before when they were ranked #1 in the nation. We almost beat them, losing by only 5 or 6 points. The competition Gonzaga plays against in the Mountain West Conference is not as good as SU. I doubt if the Zags are as good as Iowa!
Come out the “pass,” Mr Earle. This isn’t SU of old and those ghosts of former SU will not help you all against a remarkably loaded and talented zags squad. They are a legit #1.
I hope SU learns from the game and relishes in the opportunity to play against a well coached, disciplined & talented team.
