Predictions: Zags a No. 2 or No. 3 Seed in the Tournament

One thing is almost certain: Gonzaga will be in the NCAA Tournament again this year. Where they end up is the question (Photo: SWX) One thing is almost certain: Gonzaga will be in the NCAA Tournament again this year. Where they end up is the question (Photo: SWX)

It's that time of the season where fans and – let's be honest – sports writers start looking at which teams are headed to the NCAA Tournament, which teams are on the bubble and which teams are out. Gonzaga is in. Will they be a one, two, three or lower – that is the question.

That depends on who you trust. Andy Glockner at SI.com says the Zags will be a No. 3 seed. And what's more: he has them playing Long Beach State in the second round. Yes, LBSC, coached by former Gonzaga coach Dan Monson. Awkward. Great storyline.

Joe Lunardi over at ESPN has Gonzaga as No. 2 playing Southern University in Salt Lake City. You know Southern? The Jaguars from Baton Rouge? Me neither.

Who are they kidding? They don't know any more than the next guy what will happen when the crew gets together at the end of the season to set up the brackets. But it is kind of fun to think about, isn't it?

    As the 38th running of Bloomsday draws nearer, it brought back some memories from my childhood. Growing up in Issaquah, Washington, I didn’t make it to Spokane very often for the event, but every time I did, it was a special experience to share with family.>>
