Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis are Gonzaga's best scoring tandem since, well, that's a barstool conversation to be sure.

Numerically, Morrison/Batista, Morrison/Turiaf, Calvary/Dickau, Olynyk/Harris, Hendix/Santangelo are in that debate. The current frontcourt duo is putting up numbers that haven't been seen around GU since Morrison/Batista in 2006.

More on where Wiltjer/Sabonis fit historically and more on Gonzaga's five-episode reality series on HBO in my weekly notebook.
