This is the 20th anniversary of No. 3 Gonzaga’s 1999 run to the Elite Eight that vaulted the Bulldogs to national prominence, and coach Mark Few might have his best team ever. With a bounty of new and returning stars, including NBA hopefuls Rui Hachimura and Killian Tillie, the Zags seem poised to make a run again at their first national title. (AP Photo/Ted S.

Ballo is just 16 but reportedly possesses a 7-foot-6 wingspan and great long-term potential. He’s ranked No. 73 by 247sports, one of five incoming Zags rated in the top 100 by 247sports and/or ESPN.com.
