Never made a final four and they are all time great? And people say Illinois needs to know its place? Gonzaga is solid. Nothing more, nothing less.

We missed on Epperson and if Mark Smith doesn't want his offer these two would be a helluva consolation prize. Might as well pirate while the piratings good.

Zack Dawson and Latravian Glover

Talen Horton-Tucker is so skilled. Don't care if he's a tweener. He's a player, just get him on the floor. We'll see how the summer goes for him, I wouldn't be surprised if he blows up.
