Don't forget, Gonzaga started its undefeated national championship run in Fort Myers
Gonzaga improved to 30-0 on Tuesday night with its 85-66 win over USC and former FGCU head coach Andy Enfield in Indianapolis to reach the Final Four.
The Bulldogs are now two wins away from their first title and the first undefeated season in men's college basketball since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers pulled it off. The No. 1 seeded Zags will face 11 seed UCLA on Saturday night with a potential title game Monday against the Houston-Baylor winner.
But let's not forget, the Zags' wins No. 1 and 2 came in the Fort Myers Tip-Off at Suncoast Arena on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College in November. Then No. 2 ranked Gonzaga beat Kansas and Auburn to win the tournament.
Here's a look back at two crazy days for the Bulldogs, including a brush with COVID-19 that almost derailed the start of Gonzaga's season before it got going.
