Gonzaga got more rebounds, shot way better from behind the arc, and got to the free throw line just as much as UNC. But it didn’t matter, because Roy Williams and the Heels figured out how to shut down the Bulldog offense and do juuuust enough scoring of their own to bring home the title that eluded them last year.

UNC will be in the hunt, like always, because its depth and talent is only rivaled by the very best in college basketball.

Should he leave, perhaps for a school like Indiana, the AAC runs the risk of diluting the league identity for a non-football athletic department (that has considered bringing back football decades after ending its program) that might not be able to sustain success.
There is precedent for smaller, basketball-focused schools moving up in conferences and enjoying success while losing a big-time coach (VCU) or a program-defining talent (Davidson, Creighton). If Wichita State can sustain high-level basketball in a world where Marshall was coaching elsewhere 鈥?and it does have the resources to potentially do it 鈥?WSU could provide nice depth to an already decent basketball league.
