The Gonzaga Bulldogs officially unveiled their non-conference schedule of the 2018-19 season with a fancy graphic.
We’ve known about the Zags’ schedule for over a week now, so none of this should really be news to you.
The Zags are definitely gunning for a No. 1 seed, and honestly, why shouldn’t they? The non-conference slate features a potential seven opponents that advanced to the 2018 NCAA Tournament (potential because of how the Maui Invitational shakes out).
Idaho State is up the slight up and up, returning both of their top scorers from the previous season. Tennessee is looking to be a top flight team for most of the year. Texas A&M will most likely be a hot mess, but hey, it is their first time in Spokane, so that should be fun.
Thanks to a NCAA rule change, this is the earliest that Zags have ever started the regular season, since records started being kept.
