Gonzaga is set to start the season at #11 in the nation. The Zags are not in the preseason AP Top 10 for the first time since 2017.
Even though Saint Mary’s is predicted to win the WCC, the Gaels are just #23 in the nation to start the season. But don’t fret. Mark Few had this to say at the WCC Media Day: “Preseason anything is the biggest waste of time to me.”
