Gonzaga has shown it can win a close game

"The word that comes to mind is well-rounded," Groce said in describing Gonzaga. "I watch them and I just don't know if they have any weakness. They have depth, skill, athleticism, they play hard, they play together and from a statistical perspective, they're the second best team in the country when you compile all the numbers offensively and defensively."

Groce paused and then said, "I can see why potentially people say this may be the best team he's had."

"He," of course, is 49-year-old coach Mark Few, who has brushed aside countless coaching overtures and seems content to keep cranking out winner after winner at Gonzaga.
