What does Goodson's loss mean?

Demetri Goodson, who transferred to Baylor to play football, provided athleticism and defense, but his limited offense often meant it was virtually four against five. That won't be the case this year.

How fast will the freshmen guards catch on?

Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell figure to play a lot early. If they're at a high level, the team might follow.

Where does Elias Harris go from here?

Harris was a disappointment last season after a meteoric freshman year. He has All-America potential if he can keep from forcing plays and just let the game come to him.

Does the perimeter defense improve?

The Zags allowed .365 three-point shooting last year. That has to get better.

Can GU withstand the heat and repeat?

Gonzaga was picked by WCC coaches to win a 12th straight regular-season title, and the NCAA record is UCLA's 13 (1967-79). With BYU entering a league that's improving, the road gets tougher.
