According to the NET rankings through March 12, No. 6 Gonzaga faced No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 UCLA, No. 4 Tennessee (exhibition game), No. 5 Purdue, No. 7 Texas, No. 8 UConn, No. 11 Saint Mary’s (three times) and No. 15 Baylor. Several Zags had their own set of rankings when asked where UConn, which routed Gonzaga 82-54 Saturday in the Elite Eight, stacked up with foes they encountered this season.
