For those of you who didnt figure this out already, DO NOT bet on Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament. As I watch the Zags now, they are losing by four in the finals of the WCC conference tournament against Loyola Marymount, a team that finished the season with a losing record. This comes on the heels of last night’s game where they needed overtime to defeat San Diego, a school best known for not being known. And the thing to remember about both games is that they both were being played on their home court.
Every single year, the media falls in love with Gonzaga for two reasons. One is that the Zags make people think of all that is good about basketball. They are supposedly a group of scrappy young guys that give their all and are able to be great student athletes. I have no idea if that is true, and neither does the media. But they sell that story anyway. And the other reason is that they have a bunch of white guys….which is a great way to get media attention.
By the way, Gonzaga now down by 13…..please put them in Kentucky’s bracket.
