Gonzaga Basketball, even without Filip Petrusev, has one of the deepest depth charts in the entire college basketball landscape heading into 2020-21.
Gonzaga Basketball will once again be in contention for the preseason No. 1 overall ranking heading into the 2020-2021 season, despite losing four key contributors from last year’s squad.
That’s just the nature of the program Mark Few and his staff have built over in Spokane, with a trio (a tricky trio, I might add) of extraordinarily talented freshmen set to join graduate transfer guard Aaron Cook and potential redshirt freshman breakout Oumar Ballo on a Zags team that will once again be loaded, top to bottom, in the WCC.
The loss of big men Filip Petrusev (overseas) and Killian Tillie (graduated) will no doubt weaken the depth in the frontcourt, although sophomores Drew Timme and Anton Watson seem more than ready to take over the lion’s share of the minutes upfront.
Meanwhile, Ryan Woolridge and Admon Gilder were both excellent cogs in a long line of successful grad transfers in Few’s program, but the incoming freshmen and the return of Joel Ayayi give Gonzaga a formidable backcourt to pair with the equally young and exciting frontcourt the Zags have built.
Here is a look at Gonzaga’s overall depth chart, broken down by each position, giving fans a look at just how deep and talented this team will be this upcoming season, if and when it gets started.
