STAY AWAY

No. 13 Akron (38.6 percent) vs. No. 4 Gonzaga (13.1 percent)

Akron was set up nicely for a kill-shot, but Gonzaga is not the right target. The Bulldogs turn the ball over on just 16.2 percent of possessions, lowest of any Giant. And while five historical GKs with a rating between 30 percent and 40 percent have upset a Giant, the teams they beat all were extremely vulnerable: The lowest percentage of that vanquished group was 42.1 percent. Gonzaga isn't close to that level.



I don't know why but I'm just not concerned about this game or our next one. Not sure where all this confidence is coming from.

We're rolling right now. We're more experienced than the OSC and our confidence is back, plus we don't have about 12,000 miles to travel between now and Thursday. I'd be suprised if we don't win by 15+ against Akron...very suprised.

GO ZAGS!!

With you on this prediction. Past tournament experience in the Dance will also make a difference.

Agreed. I'm actually feeling 2 20 point + wins! UNC is a different story but I know we can beat them if we play well.
