Thirty one games. Thirty one wins. Gonzaga has been perfect during this men's basketball season on its way to the national championship game against Baylor.
There weren't many bumps in the road to the Final Four even with a non-conference schedule that included some of the top teams in the country. The train, however, nearly got derailed in the national semifinal against UCLA.
The Bulldogs are still standing and will go for a national championship that would equal the last team to go unbeaten — Indiana in 1976.
A look back at how the Bulldogs all their games on the road to Monday's title showdown:
Nov. 26: Gonzaga 102, Kansas 90
The Bulldogs opened with an impressive offensive explosion in Fort Myers, Florida, on Thanksgiving with three scorers breaking 20 points, led by 25 from Drew Timme. It was the 600th victory in coach Mark Few's career.
Nov. 27: Gonzaga 90, Auburn 67
The second win at the Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off came a day later as the Bulldogs led by as much as 17 in the first half and cruised home against the Tigers. Timme had 28 points and 10 rebounds. Corey Kispert added 25 points.
Dec. 2: Gonzaga 87, West Virginia 82
The only win of the regular season that was less than 10 points required a rally from the Bulldogs as the Mountaineers led by five at halftime in Indianapolis. Gonzaga put up 53 points in the second half, helped by Joel Ayayi, who scored 21 points.
