Will Xavier continue their Cinderella story run, or will Gonzaga spoil their run?
Gonzaga has had a rough start to the tournement by only beatig Northwestern 79-73, and only beating West Virginia 61-58. While Xavier has already upset a 6, 3, and a 2 seed already in the tournement and is looking to add a 1 seed to it’s resume.
Gonzaga v.s Xavier Prediction:
This worked out well for Gonzaga, because many people thought that Arizona would upset the Zags. Xavier has proved us wrong three times in this tournement, but I don’t think that they will be able to do it against this Gonzaga team. To start the game Karnowski will get some action down low which will set the tone for the Zags. I also think that Matthews will nock down some threes to extend Gonzaga’s lead. For Xavier I think that Bluiett will nock down 20 points. Gonzaga will get a double digit lead but see it slowly go away in the second half, but will hang on for a win and advance to the Final Four.
Gonzaga v.s Xavier Prediction: Gonzaga 75, Xavier 66
