Gonzaga's Defensive Philosophy

I realize it was only one game, but watching Syracuse's 2-3 zone (a system Jim Boeheim has run for years) confound the IU Hoosiers again and again last night got me thinking--what is GU's defensive philosophy? Pack the defense inside the arc and have the Jesuit on the bench pray the rosary that the opponent shoots less than 50% from deep? Switch on screens until we have our center guarding their point guard? I know it's something we've talked about a lot, but I really think that Few needs to overhaul the defense. 2-3 zone, aggressive man-to-man defense, anything except what they are currently doing.
