The first NCAA basketball games of the season have a tendency to be snooze-fest blowouts, but a matchup on Monday could be a possible preview of a Sweet Sixteen or even Elite Eight matchup. The SMU Mustangs travel to Spokane, Washington in order to face off against the Gonzaga Bulldogs, a match in which both teams won their opening bout in dramatic fashion.

If the Bulldogs win every game like they won their first game against Sacramento State, they'll go down as the best basketball team in NCAA history. A 104-58 thumping was enough to prove that Gonzaga deserves their #13 ranking. Four starters and one bench player were double-digits in scoring, although no player did better than Kyle Wiltjer's 18 points. In total, 10 of 12 roster players scored a point in the win.
The Mustangs didn't have as dramatic a first win, but they won in dramatic fashion nonetheless. Their 93-54 pounding of Lamar University made a statement, especially since the team was without Emmanual Mudiay or Markus Kennedy. Sophomore Ben Moore led the team with 22 points, 5 assists, and 9 rebounds in only 28 minutes.
