You think Gonzaga finishes "maybe in the top half" of the B1G or ACC? So they might be as good as Minnesota? Even though they beat a full strength Duke team? I think you've paid no attention to them since Maui and are just making stuff up.Good point, but they are coasting in their laurels in conference. They did OK this year beating up on down P5 programs (IL, AZ, A&M) and did beat Duke, but lost to NC by 12, and to Tennessee by 3, but put them in the ACC or the B1G, or even the SEC this year and they finish maybe in the top half of each conference, but not as a conference season or tournament winner or #1 seed IMO.
Yes and YesThe B1G got hosed I think. Is the ACC that much better then the B1G so they got three #1 seeds? Horse puckey. According to the ACC/B1G challenge . . . No.
And Gonzaga as a #1? They play (and dominate) in a !!!! conference and they didn’t even win their conference tourney. Media darlings, not a real contender.
Did Walton go to the rest room during the assignments? No Dicky D? Getting better already.Announce teams and game schedule for the opening weekend have been announced: https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/2019-03-17/cbs-sports-and-turner-sports-exclusive-coverage-2019-ncaa-division-i
