Mark Few and his Gonzaga Bulldogs has finally got the monkeys off their backs. They finally made it to the NCAA’s Division I Final Four March Madness tournament.
On Saturday, the Bulldogs defeated the Xavier Musketeers 83-59, a staggering 24 point win, to be the first team to punch their ticket to Arizona, the place where the final three games will take place.
Gonzaga is the second team in Washington state to advance to the NCAA Final Four teams. The first team earlier this month that made it this far was the Whitman Blues, who advanced to their first ever Final Four. However, the Blues choked when the stage got too bright. After leading by 25 points, their head-coach got too cocky and didn’t follow the game plan, which contributed to the Blues first loss of the season.
However, the Bulldogs are much more talented and more focused than their Division III counterparts, Whitman Blues. At this pace the Gonzaga Bulldogs should become this year’s national champions.
