Analysis: Gonzaga leaves no doubt in 102-90 season-opening victory over Kansas

Top-ranked Gonzaga opened the college basketball season looking very, very much like the No. 1 team in the country. The Zags did it all against Kansas, one of college basketball’s storied programs. And the Zags made it look almost easy at times, at least on the offensive end, against an opponent that prides itself on toughness and stingy defense. Gonzaga pulled away in the final 10 minutes for a wildly entertaining 102-90 victory over the sixth-ranked Jayhawks at Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Fort Myers, Florida.

Tale of the tape: Gonzaga vs. Kansas

With three NCAA Tournament titles under their belt, the Kansas Jayhawks are one of college basketball's established "blue blood" programs alongside Duke, North Carolina and UCLA. But how do the Gonzaga Bulldogs stack up against the 15-time Final Four participants ahead of their Thanksgiving Day season-opening showdown?

Highlights: Gonzaga 102, Kansas 90

The No. 1-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs led nearly from start to finish in their season opener against the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks. At one point in the second half, Kansas narrowed the deficit to just one, but thanks to 47 combined points from Jalen Suggs and Corey Kispert, Gonzaga was able to hold on in an offensive onslaught, 102-90. – FOX Sports

With signature victories piling up, Gonzaga continues to chip away at college basketball’s ‘blue bloods’

For as much success as the Gonzaga men’s basketball team has experienced in the last two decades, the Zags would still need many years to match the historical accomplishments of the great men’s college basketball programs in the country. Still, with 21 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, the fifth-longest active streak, the Zags are far from their Cinderella days.
