Gonzaga men’s basketball has made every NCAA Tournament dating back to the 1999 season. The Bulldogs haven’t missed a tournament since 1998.

Though they’ve never quite cashed in the college basketball national championship odds market, the long run of success under Mark Few does mark Gonzaga as one of the teams with the most consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

That streak is in major jeopardy in 2024. Gonzaga may need to win the WCC Tournament to earn a bid, and that draw is much more difficult than it has been in the past. 

Gonzaga’s Sweet 16 Streak

Gonzaga has another impressive streak still active going into 2024: The Bulldogs have made the Sweet 16 in eight consecutive seasons. 

There was no tournament in 2020, but Gonzaga has represented in the second tournament week every year since 2015. 

That’s a pretty good run for a program that was once mocked for early tournament flameouts.
