Today Just Proved Yet Again Why Gonzaga Is An Absolute Nightmare And One Of The Best Teams We've Ever Seen

Let's be very clear about something. Gonzaga played a fairly average game today. They weren't super crisp offensively. They shot 37.5% from three. They turned it over 16 times. Nothing really eye popping. They beat the shit out of Creighton. They still got 83, won by 18 and the game really wasn't that close in the second half. This is why Gonzaga is such a nightmare. There's not a great way to prepare for them. Creighton has to play fast in order to play the offense it wants to. We saw that early when they were sticking around but you had Zegarowski making a bunch of shots. If you slow it down, Gonzaga has a bunch of guys they can play through the offense with. 

We saw this early. Creighton was daring Joel Ayayi to beat them. No problem, he had 9 early. They dared Andrew Nembhard to attack. No problem he finished with 17 and 8. Timme had 22 because Timme is a bucket. Kispert had 2 points for most of the first half and Gonzaga was still trending to score 91 points at the time. Oh not to mention they are defending their asses off again. That was the biggest question, if you even want to call it that, when it comes to this team. But they clamped down Creighton and held them to 21% from three.

Yes there are still three games left for them to win a title, but we're watching an all-time team. One of the most prolific offenses we've seen. They can beat you any single way. Absolute fucking nightmare.
