Gonzaga lost to Nevada last year... which sucked. That was an awesome team they had... could (and should) have gone far into the tournament.
I've been watching Gonzaga's games for years now (as they've been the only college team worth watching in eastern Washington - even before they were good) and they seem to struggle against some pretty bad teams every year - more often than I'd care to see. Some nights they look fantasic and the others... well, it can be pretty hard to watch. They always tend to step it up against the "big teams", though...
Ah well - go Gonzaga. When they lost to Illinois, they hadn't been playing well before - not saying they would win if they had a rematch with the way they've been playing recently, but they would have at least had a respectable showing, methinks. They beat two #3 teams in three games and there's never any shame losing to Quin Snyder - a Washington native.

• A two-time state player of the year, Snyder led the team to the 1985 state championship. During this time Mercer Island achieved a No. 1 ranking in USA Today’s high school polls.
• Snyder was named a McDonald’s All-America player, becoming the first-ever chosen from the state of Washington.
My dad watched him play in the HS tournament and has been following him ever since. Kind of converted me into a Snyder-fan.

SCOREBOARD... or something. The 'Zags ripped the Huskies a new one, methinks.
