The Bulldogs swept the regular-season and conference tournament championships last season and have won 12 of the last 13 regular-season WCC Titles and six of the last nine tournament championships.

The season begins once again immediately following the Christmas break. GU opens on the road at Pacific on Dec. 28 and at Santa Clara on Dec. 30. The Zags return home the next week with Pepperdine on Jan. 4 and Loyola Marymount on Jan. 6.
