After 15 seasons someone other than Gonzaga claimed the regular-season title as well as the conference tournament title last season -- that being Saint Mary's. But just when you think there could be some parity creeping into the West Coast Conference, Gonzaga has reloaded and then some. The Zags had a young team last season, particularly on the perimeter. Now they have added a stud out of Europe who is drawing rave reviews in 7-foot-1 Przemek Karnowski.
Though the West Coast Conference's top three teams -- Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and BYU -- have accrued a lot of talent in the 2012 and '13 classes, LMU easily has the most well-rounded group.
