SPOKANE, Wash. – Mark Few and the Gonzaga men’s basketball team have another West Coast Conference Tournament win under the belt.
The Gonzaga women’s basketball team also came out on top during this year’s tournament.
With a 32-1 record and the conference title, the Zags have their eyes set on the NCAA Tournament.
The question remains: Following their weekend win in Vegas, will the Zags earn that coveted No. 1 seed on Selection Sunday?
Here is what the media is saying following Tuesday’s win:
CBS’ Gary Parrish referenced the top 25 RPI wins.

(This is why the Zags will likely be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.)
Jon Rothstein of CBS said the Zags will likely be the number one seed in the West following their double-digit victory over Saint Mary’s.
Gonzaga beats Saint Mary's with ease for the third time this season. Bulldogs deserve and will likely get the number one seed in the West.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) March 8, 2017
Rothstein also mentioned the Zags are an underrated defensive team.
Gonzaga held its three opponents to 58.0 PPG and just 36.3% from the field during the WCC Tournament. Such an underrated defensive team.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) March 8, 2017
In response to a tweet from Mid-Major Madness, Jeff Borzello says it’s all so predictable.

So, what are the media saying about Gonzaga’s chances of heading to the Final Four?
