Gonzaga Bulldogs College Basketball Betting

Four years ago, the Gonzaga Bulldogs made history. To show, the Zags made their first ever national championship game. North Carolina ended the Bulldogs' dreams with a 71-65 win in the national championship game. It was a classic case of a traditional blue blood slapping down an aspiring new national power. Since then, North Carolina has slipped to the point where coach Roy Williams chose to retire. Gonzaga has continued to build itself up under coach Mark Few. They can match the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers as an undefeated national champion with one more win.
