The Bulldogs are on the verge of making history.

1996 Final Four

After the NCAA Tournament was canceled last season, fans had no idea what to expect coming into this year. Everything changed, and a lot of people weren’t sure this year’s tournament was even going to happen.

Well, in what seems like a blink of an eye, the Final Four is set, and there is one team that has defied all the odds, and has set some records along the way.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are a perfect 30-0 as they enter the Final Four, and they’re looking to become the first team to go undefeated and win the championship since Bobby Knight’s 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers.

Sound familiar?

They have also become the sixth team in NCAA history to win each of its first four games by 15+ points since the NCAA Tournament expanded in 1985.

Two of those teams? The ‘93 and ‘96 Kentucky Wildcats.

The Cats have had a lot of great runs in the Tournament, and while unfortunately this season has been one to forget, at least we can reminisce on teams like the ones mentioned above.

Will the Bulldogs pull off one of the greatest seasons ever? Maybe. But as we all know, anything can happen in March, especially the Final Four.
