Why Gonzaga Will Win
It’s not like the team is struggling through the dog days.
There are a whole lot of easy baskets, the team is hitting half of its shots in every game – or close to it – and there weren’t any issues against the good San Francisco defense in the first game. The Bulldogs weren’t great from the outside, but they hit 53% from the field in the 85-62 win and grabbed just about everything off the boards.
If they can win the rebounding margin by 17 again, it’ll be every bit as ugly as the first meeting, but …
Why San Francisco Will Win
The Dons can bomb away to get into the game. This might not be a high-scoring team overall, but it shoots a whole lot of threes and can make this interesting if they’re falling early on.
The defense is excellent at coming up with enough steals and blocks to matter, but can it generate enough turnovers against the air-tight Gonzaga team that turned it over just 15 times the first time?

What’s Going To Happen
Gonzaga will win, it’s just a question of when it turns it on.
The Dons have lost three of their last four games and all of them at home when the offense failed to get to 70 points. They’re not going to get close to that against a Bulldog team that hasn’t taken their foot off the gas, even though this is its fifth straight road game.
