The schedule continues to get more and more awesome...

If you had any concerns that Gonzaga's weak schedule this past season was the start of a trend, you officially have no need to worry.  In addition to confirmed games against Arizona, Memphis, and UCLA, the Zags have come to terms on a series deal with Larry Brown's SMU Mustangs which will begin this coming season.  SMU will travel to Spokane on November 17th as part of ESPN's College Basketball Tip-Off Marathon.

We had heard rumors of this series but official word came this morning:

This will undoubtedly be one of the most hyped matchups of early season play as it will pit two teams that will surely be in the top-20 of the polls.  SMU will feature star freshman point guard Emmanuel Mudiay in addition to a strong returning group that nearly won the NIT this past season.
