Gonzaga finished the regular season at No.1 and will head into the postseason the same way.
After a perfect run through the West Coast Conference regular season and tournament, the Zags received the top seed in the West Region of the NCAA tournament.
Gonzaga, which went 26-2, opens the tournament against No. 16 seed Southern University in Salt Lake City on Thursday.
Get past the Jaguars and the Zags will face a difficult road in a bracket that includes second-seeded Ohio State, Kansas State, New Mexico and Arizona.
One of the more intriguing second round games of the NCAA tournament will take place in West: dynamic Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson against the grinding style of Wisconsin in Kansas City on Friday.
