18. Gonzaga

Mark Few doesn't mind the comparisons to 1999, the first year the Zags stole the headlines in March. Few was an assistant that season when the Bulldogs were a complete team, with options at all five positions, and defended with a purpose. Few loves the versatility and chemistry of this crew. He has experience at every position on a worldly roster with Canadians Kevin Pangos and Kelly Olynyk, German Elias Harris and newcomer big man Przemek Karnowski of Poland. With the return of Americans Gary Bell Jr. and David Stockton on the perimeter and glue guy Sam Dower inside, the Zags have a ton of experience. The schedule is once again loaded for plenty of power-rating games, along with BYU and Saint Mary's in the WCC. The West has been down the past few years, but Gonzaga has the talent to make an Atlanta run. -- Andy Katz
