I think it's a very fair comparison. But they are like a top-notch version of Boise, not this past year's team.
If there was an NCAA tournament in football, I bet the best Kellen Moore or Jared Zabranskey teams could have made the Elite 8 or maybe even the Final 4 with some breaks, but they wouldn't have won it all. Same goes for this year's Gonzaga team.
I think they have 3 low-level NBA players (maybe 4 if Karnowski develops in a few years, but he is a role player this year). They've had better teams in the past, I think, but this is one of Few's top 3 squads.
i think this year's team is their best ever. i really do. they are gonna get a 1 seed so that will help them get to the sweet 16 almost for sure. from there it will be interesting but they are actually pretty damn good.
