We cannot look at the Gonzaga Basketball team and not think of a place in the history books of college basketball. They are on the road of putting together a perfect season for the first time since 1976 when Indiana did it.

If the Zags are able to accomplish the milestone, they will surely become the best program in the country. Coach Mark Few’s name would also be placed amongst some of the biggest college basketball coaches of all time. 

When it comes to the game against the USC Trojans, the South Carolina team never had a chance. They were already in a 19-point deficit heading into halftime. The Gonzagas were ahead in almost every single category as we take a look at the stats:
