Few is an excellent coach/recruiter and has no West Coast competition.

Spokanistan is a total hellhole, so even thought the meth is awesome there, it's not that.

The ascendancy of the program under Few has coincided with a sharp downturn in the fortunes of many West Coast teams. The PAC12 is garbage, Oregon is middling, and the Washington schools (UW and WSU) both hit rock bottom. Few dominates a very fertile recruiting territory, getting kids from CA, OR and WA, as well as key foreign players and a smattering of kids from the flyover zone.

Additionally, Few plays a fun and exciting style of basketball. He's the best offensive coach in the country. Kids get to score and play uptempo while still playing decent defense. Say what you want about their players, but they get to be themselves in the program.

Finally, Few has done a fantastic job of playing the best early season schedule of just about any program in the country, year in and year out. They go on the road and play top teams in made for TV match ups. So while the WCC is not regularly featured throughout the season, Gonzaga has a national presence.
