There is a whole host of reasons not to watch this game: the pain, the misery, the officiating, etc. This list could go on for a while.
However, to file this game away as something to never revisit does an injustice for how good this 2017 Gonzaga Bulldogs squad was. They are, at this point, the only team Gonzaga team to make the national championship and the Final Four. By the history books, they are the most successful Gonzaga team ever.
So that is why I’m going to turn it on at 5:00 pm PT and hit play. I’m going to watch the core combination of Nigel Williams-Goss, Przemek Karnowski, Johnathan Williams, Josh Perkins, Silas Melson, Killian Tillie, Jordan Mathews, and Zach Collins take the court together one more time. They were the most talented group of defensive minded Bulldogs we’ve ever seen. Just that in itself is a treat to watch.
