There can't be another D-I program that has had a three-year stretch comparable to Santa Clara's. The Broncos had one of the better seasons in school history, winning 24 games and a post-season tournament, then lost every conference game the following season. The pendulum is swinging the other way this season as SCU is off to a 12-3 start.
Gonzaga visits the resurgent Broncos tonight at 5 at the Leavey Center. The game is sold out, but Santa Clara coach Kerry Keating is hoping to entice more students to attend.
Here's my game preview.
