As I sit here wondering what topic my first article on here should be about, I figured why not talk about the whole dang thing. We are only 50 days away from Selection Sunday, so here’s a synopsis of the 2020-2021 season to this point about the best thing in the world, NCAA Basketball. There have been some good, some bad, and some ugly, but just being able to watch, argue, and appreciate this wonderful sport is something we all deserve.

A league of their own

Let’s start with the good. Just kidding. Let’s start with the great, and maybe unbeatable, Gonzaga Bulldogs. We might say this every year, but Mark Few might have his best team yet. There is not a weakness on this team, whatsoever. Jalen Suggs has taken the world by storm, and you can argue that he has surpassed Cade Cunningham in draft stock.

Corey Kispert is automatic from three, as he looks and plays exactly like Joe Harris. What really makes a successful team is paint touches and playing inside out. There is nobody better than Drew Timme. He is the best post presence in the nation, and if things happen to go array, Gonzaga can slow it down and feed him down low. Not to mention, Joel Ayayi and the Florida transfer, Andrew Nembhard, provide the steadiest of guard play.

The one concern the Zags may have is that they most likely won’t play a competitive game till the big dance. The WCC is down this year, but you cannot discredit Gonzaga’s resume. Beating Kansas, West Virginia, Iowa, and Virginia, all rather handily no less, makes this team the obvious favorite come March.
