The Road to Number One


They will ever tell the saga from Spokane down to Moraga
Of the night the West Coast tourney reached its end
And how poor Randy Bennett did not find a way to mend it
And last year’s tourney title couldn’t defend.

For the Bulldogs of Mark Few finished 31-2
And kept their season’s goals firmly in sight
And though the vaunted Gaels at times were tough as nails
Gonzaga got the better of the fight!

Matthew Dellavedova? He never did get over
The double-teaming swarm the Zags did show
And St. Mary’s faced the truth (just like Waldow’s missing tooth…)
They did not have enough to beat this foe.

For mighty Elias Harris the Gaels he did embarrass
And Olynyk’s dunks were made for all to see
The Zags had plenty of power (and besides that, had Sam Dower…!)
To enforce their will and claim the victory.

And many years from now we’ll remember then just how
This sturdy bunch did make their title run
And through the league we know they went 16 and 0
And claimed their rightful place as Number One!
