Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk is featured on one of four regional Sports Illustrated final four preview covers this week. The magazine goes on sale on Thursday.

The cover also features a couple dozen Gonzaga students, who are invited to visit the si.com website and tag themselves and post their Twitter handle.

The other regional covers feature Idiana’s Victor Oladipo, Kansas’ Ben McClemore and Syracuse’s Michael Carter Williams.

The Bulldogs (31-2) were a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Pres' college basketball poll for a third straight week on Monday, receiving 45 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. They become the first school from a non-BCS conference to finish No. 1 in the final poll since Massachusetts of the Atlantic 10 in 1996.

Louisville, the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, is second and got the other first-place votes. Kansas and Indiana - the other No. 1 seeds - are third and fourth followed by Miami, Duke, Ohio State, Georgetown, Michigan State and Michigan.
