Critics who pointed to perceived early exits for the Zags from the NCAA tournament can't use that argument after last season.

The two teams in last season's national title game find themselves both outside of the top 25 in the initial 2017-18 Basketball Power Index.
Southern Utah guard Randy Onwuasor, who led the Big Sky in scoring last season with 23.6 points per game, has received his release to transfer, sources told ESPN.
Few has turned Gonzaga into a national power, and figures to be a player nationally for the long term.
Five-star forward Taeshon Cherry committed to USC on Friday, joining a Trojans roster that should be one of the most talented in the country next season.
Karnowski makes Hornets' summer league roster
Former Gonzaga star Przemek Karnowski has been added to the Hornets' summer league roster. The 7-foot-1, 300-pound Polish center helped the Bulldogs reach the national championship game with 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz selected Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss with the No. 55 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night.
ESPN Stats and Information
Zach Collins goes No. 10 overall. He's the highest-drafted Gonzaga player since Adam Morrison went No. 3 to the Bobcats in 2006.
The Trail Blazers will receive Gonzaga forward Zach Collins (via Kings), who was the No. 10 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night.
Collins is a skilled big man who can score both inside and outside. He's a good rebounder and rim protector.
Gonzaga big man Zach Collins is projected as a lottery pick for Thursday's NBA draft. What are his strengths and weaknesses? We asked an NBA scout, then recruited a panel of ESPN experts and Collins himself to respond.
The Gonzaga forward withdrew from the NBA draft at the deadline, and now he'll have a much larger role in the Bulldogs' frontcourt.
Lakers to work out six Monday
The Lakers are set to host six prospects Monday for a pre-draft workout: Gonzaga F Zach Collins, Clemson G Avry Holmes, Creighton F Cole Huff, UC Irvine G Luke Nelson, Columbia F Luke Petrasek and Alabama-Huntsville F Seab Webster.
Williams-Goss, Hicks work out for Jazz
Utah held another pre-draft workout on Saturday, with Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss, UNC big man Isaiah Hicks and Baylor F Johnathan Motley making up three of the six players in attendance. The Jazz currently own four picks (24th, 30th, 42nd and 55th) in Thursday's draft.
Other mock drafts have Gonzaga's 7-footer going later, but this isn't an ordinary mock draft. The Kings shouldn't pass on Collins if he's still around at No. 10.
Nuggets to work out six more Friday
The Denver Nuggets will continue their busy week of pre-draft workouts Friday, with Kentucky C Bam Adebayo, Belgian C Ismael Bako, Washington State G Ike Iroegbu, Gonzaga C Przemek Karnowski, North Carolina C Kennedy Meeks and George Washington G Jaren Sina scheduled to attend.
Collins is a high-percentage finisher with good touch at the free throw line. His skill level may allow him to play both frontcourt spots in the pros.
Next Nuggets workout scheduled Thursday
The Denver Nuggets will host Florida G Canyon Barry, Air Force G Hayden Graham, Miami F Kamari Murphy, Baylor F Johnathan Motley, Arizona G Kobi Simmons and Gonzaga G Nigel Williams-Goss for a pre-draft workout Thursday.
