Gonzaga Basketball: Bulldogs Ranked First In WCC Preseason Poll

The expectations are only increasing for the Gonzaga Bulldogs men's basketball team as the season nears.

Although we've probably come to expect them to be the WCC favorite by now.

Men's Basketball Favored To Win 11th Straight WCC Title
The Bulldogs received six of the eight first-place votes from WCC coaches and a total of 48 points to out-distance Loyola Marymount University with 42 points and Saint Mary's College with 39, those two schools each garnering one first-place vote. Coaches could not vote for their team.

"One of our goals every year is to win the conference title," Gonzaga head coach Mark Few said. "People don't understand how difficult this conference is, which makes it all that more meaningful when you do win it."

The Bulldogs were also one of four teams to have two selections to the 10-player WCC men's basketball preseason All-WCC team.

Senior guard Elias Harris and sophomore forward Elias Harris were also selected to the WCC Preseason All-Conference team.
