The Gonzaga Bulldogs men’s basketball team remembers what last year’s perfect season until a blowout championship game loss to Baylor felt like, and they’re doing everything they can to avenge it. They don’t “give a flying F.”

Star 6-foot-10 forward Drew Timme might have mustache competition (looking at you, Doug Edert), but on the court there’s been no challenger for the junior. In two tournament wins, he’s DOMINATED in the paint for a combined 57 points on 23-of-37 shooting with 27 rebounds, six assists and just two turnovers. 

Returning to the Sweet 16 wasn’t a guarantee. Although everyone thought the Zags would hold the talent to be one of the nation’s top teams again, nobody could say for sure what the losses of both starting point and shooting guards Jalen Suggs and Corey Kispert to the NBA would mean.

So how’d they do it? Instead of outright replacing the guards (senior Andrew Nembhard has done his part in that), Gonzaga signed the No. 1 recruit in the country, 7-foot center Chet Holmgren, who needs to be seen to be believed.

To beat No. 16 Georgia State, the freshman scored 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting with 17 rebounds, five assists and SEVEN blocks, though in the win over No. 9 Memphis, he cooled off for nine points, nine boards, and four blocks.

Regardless, these guys are the two-headed big man monster motoring the Bulldogs onwards.

 

That’s why our Bet of the Day is a prop on Timme and Holmgren to combine for 30 or more points against No. 4 Arkansas tonight.

🧐 Betting on Timme & Holmgren is smart because…

  • Gonzaga is Ken Pomeroy’s No. 1 team based on predictive stats

  • Arkansas doesn’t play anyone over 6-foot-7!
