#1 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs cool trick shot video

gonzaga bulldogs

The Gonzaga Bulldogs aren’t just great on the court, they’re exceptional at the art of the trick shot. Gonzaga accomplished the school’s first 30-win season, a No.1 seed in the NCAA tournament, also a first, and for awhile they were the top ranked team in college basketball. This is all uncharted territory for the Gonzaga Bulldogs.

Welcome Gonzaga Bulldogs to the West Regional, where they are a #1 seed. They get to stay close to home, which will be advantageous for Gonzaga Bulldogs fans.

#22 Gonzaga Bulldogs: College Basketball 111 in 111

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!  Gonzaga’s streak of 11 straight WCC regular season titles ended last year when Saint Mary’s knocked the Zags off their throne.  In typical Mark Few fashion, he’ll have the Bulldogs in conference championship contention and competing on the national level.

Illini Upset #18 Gonzaga; Illinois is Better than You Think


Even when Illinois is having a down year, or a “rebuilding year,” they still get at least one win in over a ranked team. In 1998-99 and 2007-08 (two college basketball seasons that saw Illinois break the school record for losses) they still beat a couple ranked teams- even if it didn’t happen until the Big Ten Tournament.

It’s a hallmark of where Illinois is as a program, even in lean years they’re serviceable. Most experts expected this season to be a down year in Champaign, and that’s understandable given all the questions marks. However, as today’s solid, comfortable win over a top 20 team shows, the Illini might be a better team than you think they are.

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

11 straight conference championships.  14 twenty-plus win seasons in a row.  13 consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament.  It will be business as usual for the Gonzaga Bulldogs as they should remain the kings of the West Coast Conference even with the arrival of BYU.  Unlike recent years though, the Zags will rely on their veteran frontcourt as they go through some transition at guard.
