The #1 ranked and undefeated Gonzaga Bulldogs took care of business today to remain perfect on the season and advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Men's basketball tournament with a convincing win over the Oklahoma Sooners.
Every year (let's forget 2020 never existed!) there are always a few upsets in the first round and an unlikely team that makes a crazy run that blows up more than a few brackets. Could this be the year for the 15th-seeded Eastern Washington Eagles?
While print media has slowly eroded over the years thanks to the internet, it is still an honor to make the cover of venerable publication "Sports Illustrated".
In their upcoming February 23rd edition, Mark Few's Gonzaga Bulldogs Men's Basketball team gets that distinction.
That's over now — both teams lost their second tournament game. But the big payoff for the conference's 12 schools comes over the next six years, a windfall of at least $6.77 million that starts in 2020 with a $1.1 million payment from the NCAA.
