I think that to get ready for the tournament, they need to add some higher level competition late in year. I know it’s tough to do, but other teams have done it. They might lose one or two, but winning the NCAA is more important than being undefeated regular season if they did that by playing sub caliber competition.Yeah they can. They are recruiting at an ultra high level. Suggs going in the top 5 of the draft will tell lot of players of that caliber that its just as rewarding to go to Gonzaga, as it is Duke/Kentucky.
Next year they are bringing in #6 Hunter Sallis, and likely will get #1 Chet Holmgren. You take Kentucky level recruiting, and have Mark Few coach it - yeah I'm thinking they will eventually win it. You get to the FF enough times, eventually you win.
It won’t hurt their inter-league performance to add extra games in the middle of inter-league play, given that their league is so weak.
