Toward the end of wild Saturday of college basketball during which good teams lost home games, road games and to inferior opponents, Gonzaga did what Gonzaga has been doing all season: Destroyed another Division I program.
Final score: Gonzaga 96, Pepperdine 49.
So now the Zags are 22-0 overall, 10-0 in the WCC and the winners of 14 straight games by double-digits. No, they wouldn't be undefeated if they were in the Big 12 or ACC; might as well say that before you say it. But their body of work is hardly lacking substance. They've beaten five top-40 KenPom teams -- including the Arizona team that's 19-2 with a win over UCLA. And, for what it's worth, Gonzaga is the nation's only team with an adjusted offensive efficiency rating and adjusted defensive efficiency rating that both rank in the top 10.
The Zags remain No. 1 in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
