Like most of the members of this site, I was pretty depressed about this team for a long time. Preseason, I told friends from other schools that this was our final four year... that we had the perfect mix of experience, young talent, depth, and defense (ha!). As we collapsed, I found myself more upset about our 10 season regular season streak ending than I was about potentially missing the NCAA tournament. This was Gonzaga's chance to make history and supplant John Wooden's UCLA and we managed to screw it up.
Now that we have a chance (just a small one. No way I'm jinxing this thing) to win/share the regular season title, I asked myself which I would rather have: a win against USD and a chance to keep the streak going, or an automatic bid to the tournament. Obviously, there is a chance (even smaller, almost nonexistent, it basically can't happen) that we can do both of these things, but I'm curious: how do you guys feel about this?
Continue the streak or get to the tourney?
