Kelly Olynyk redshirts to become main catalyst for surging Gonzaga

Zags center Kelly Olynyk took an unusual path to becoming a top big. He entered Gonzaga still playing like the 6'3" guard he had been through most of high school, and redshirted as a junior to grow into his new 7-foot body and the post game it commanded. Now he might be leading the Bulldogs into the Final Four. Go Zags!
So the Big Man is the reason Gonzaga is SO much better this year than last?
Well the Zags have been to the dance 14 straight years in a row... usually one and done, but not bad.
We have a bug with Wikipedia links; here's your link: Gonzaga Bulldogs men's basketball.
March Madness is so unpredictable BECAUSE of one and done, but a lot of people think the Zags will go deep this year.
They do have a lot of confidence going into March.
