Gonzaga picked up an impressive 79-56 victory over Saint Mary’s on Saturday night and now are looking at the possibility of a perfect regular season. The Bulldogs still have trips to BYU and Saint Mary’s coming up though and those are easily the two most difficult pure road games on their schedule. Gonzaga does have some decent wins and their RPI is strong, but that number is only going to fall as they cruise through the WCC slate. This is a very good group, but do not be surprised to see Gonzaga fall down to a three or four seed if they lose a couple games and other teams in stronger conferences do enough to earn those top seeds.
