Going into Saturday’s NCAA action, it looked like Gonzaga was a lock to earn the No. 1 seed in the West. Many, myself included, were prepared for the Bulldogs to finish the regular season undefeated and attempt a historic run through the tourney. Then the Bulldogs went and ate shit against BYU the same night UCLA avenged a January loss to Arizona, and now that top seed is up for grabs.
While Gonzaga was fucking up its Senior Night, the Bruins faced off with Arizona to give us one of the season’s great games—their second of the season after the Wildcats downed UCLA 96-85 in January—and greatly complicate the selection committee’s job.
