Predicting the Gonzaga Bulldogs starting 5 in 2022-23

It’s time for the Gonzaga Bulldogs to head to the Kennel. Let’s look at who Coach Few will likely choose for his starting 5.

2022-23 will be Mark Few’s 24th season as the Gonzaga Bulldogs head coach. He has the necessary talent on the roster, including a dynamic starting five to go all the way.

The Zags will look slightly different this year than they did in the past two seasons. What’s the difference? There are no one-and-done draft picks this time around. No distractions. So who will make Few’s starting five?

Let’s delve into the Bulldogs’ players and figure out who might be a Gonzaga Bulldogs starter this year. The players who will lead the Bulldogs to the championship, Drew Timme‘s championship.

Center

Heeeeesss back! At Center, the WCC Player of the Year, All-American Drew Timme. The “Spokane Stache” returned to Gonzaga at the last minute on the last day players could withdraw from the NBA Draft.

What a sigh of relief for the Zags fans. If they were looking for a sign that this season it, they got it with the 6’10 Texas native’s return. This is Timme’s last year with the Zags, and he truly deserves to go out by hoisting the National Championship Trophy.

Last season, Timme averaged 18.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists with a 58.6 field goal percentage. 2022-23 is Timme’s chance to show NBA general managers that he is indeed a formidable power forward. A Championship is a definite way to show it.
