Weekly Zag Briefing

Bulldogs on top of the power rankings and the art of the pre-game handshake.

NCAA Basketball: Pacific at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

We’re in the final week of the regular season, and this time of year always feels like the calm before the postseason storm. Here’s hoping the Zags get through the week unscathed!

Current national-title-threat status: On a scale from Adam Morrison’s mustache to Kevin Pangos’s luxurious flow, I give Gonzaga’s title chances “Przemek Karnowski’s beard.” It should be the favorite, but the added pressure of being undefeated and trying to reach the program’s first Final Four does worry me a little. And just to be clear: I don’t think the Zags are the best team in the country just because they are undefeated. I think they’re undefeated because they’re the best team in the country.
