      As a team with 2 straight losses including 1 to a team at home who just lost 8 straight prior. But try explaining that to the guy who does the power rankings over at ESPN who said he felt good about not moving them out of 5th after back to back losses. ?????

    Gonzaga has the win over Duke but what else? It’d be nice if they’d join a real conference.

      They are a basketball-only school. It would be very hard for them to join another conference worth anything (i.e. Pac-12) due to that.
