So we can pretty much chalk up BYU as the last obstacle between Gonzaga and a perfect regular season. Bulldogs up 60-23 on San Diego with about 13 minutes left and the Toreros have yet to make 10 FGs -- shooting just 22% (9-41) from the field.
Top-ranked Zags take aim at win No. 29
They'll visit the University of San Diego on Thursday night. When they hosted the Toreros about a month ago, they won by 36 points. A home game vs. BYU on Saturday will wrap up Gonzaga's regular season.
UNC solidified its spot on the top line with a win over Louisville on Wednesday night. Meanwhile, Villanova remains a top seed despite a loss to Butler. Unbeaten Gonzaga and Big 12 champion Kansas round out the No. 1 seeds.
Villanova's Josh Hart has remained atop the Wooden Watch list for most of the season. Kansas guard Frank Mason III's play, though, has been hard to ignore.
Gonzaga has had some great teams, but none have reached the Final Four. Is this the year? Former players like Dan Dickau, Adam Morrison and Kyle Wiltjer offer their thoughts on the 28-0 Zags.
The Bilastator won't use the common refrain. He sees the truth: The at-large pool is weak. Only a handful of teams can sustain the excellence to win it all. Who are they? You're welcome.
Przemek Karnowski wasn't sure he'd play again after he injured his back so badly he could barely walk. His recovery has played a big role in the Zags' quest for an undefeated season.
Gonzaga, Villanova and Kansas hold their positions on the No. 1 line and are joined by North Carolina, which dominated Virginia on Saturday night.
Vegas likes Cats to win it all
The latest odds from Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have Kentucky the favorite to win the national title at 6 to 1. Kansas is next at 7 to 1, followed by Duke, Gonzaga and UCLA at 8 to 1 each.
Gonzaga, Villanova and Kansas are the top three teams in the Associated Press men's college basketball poll for the third straight week.
The beginning of the season showed movement. Now, with March almost here, the top three have locked themselves into place. Will anyone move Gonzaga, Villanova or Kansas?
Zags are climbing perfection list
A win on Saturday night at Pacific would pull Gonzaga even with Bruce Weber's 2004-05 Illini. They lost their final regular-season game, then won eight straight to reach the national final before losing to North Carolina.
Top-ranked Gonzaga is only two wins away from a perfect regular season record after handling Pacific 82-61 on Saturday. Nigel Williams-Goss had 18 points and seven assists for the Bulldogs.

Gonzaga has now won 20 straight games by double-figures.
Perfect regular season in sight for Zags
The nation's top-ranked team (27-0) doesn't appear to have anything to worry about in its remaining West Coast Conference games. The league tournament will be played in Las Vegas.
ESPN Stats and Information
No. 1 Gonzaga (27-0) has a 93 percent chance, according to ESPN.com/BPI, to enter the West Coast Conference tournament undefeated. The Bulldogs are the sixth Division I team over the last 35 seasons to start 27-0, though none of the previous five won the national championship, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
Some teams are harder to prepare for in March. A panel of 50 coaches weighed in on which team they'd least want to see in the postseason, and the leading vote-getter might surprise you.
ESPN CBB analyst Jay Bilas discusses whether Gonzaga is the best team in the country, Duke's outlook, the nation's top players and Northwestern's chances to make the NCAA tournament.
