  • Gonzaga vs UNC Greensboro game preview — March Madness

South Dakota State has rattled off 11 straight wins entering the NCAA Tournament, and boast the third longest active winning streak in the country.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs (30-4) are coming from a 74-54 victory over BYU to capture the WCC title.

The last year that didn't see a 6-11 upset was 2004 and since then only four years have seen just one such upset. The Bulldogs are riding in a 15-game winning streak. "Anything can happen and you never know when adversity can hit and I'm just glad we stuck with it and stuck together and that's what matters in times like this". I'm proud of that. Xavier lost twice to Villanova by double digits and has only one win over a strong team this year (Cincinnati). It knew it would win.

Will Gonzaga roll to its 15th consecutive victory, or will the Spartans pull off a huge upset? "We proved we can play with those upper-echelon teams".

We are officially done with college basketball conference championships and the NCAA tournament tips off this week. He hasn't been able to do that the past two years, getting knocked out in first and second rounds.

They chipped away until they tied it three times in the final 4:55, each time on a bucket by junior point guard Demetrius Troy.

This year: "Obviously, expectations are really different for us", Daum said. We want to get to that stage. There were a couple of scrums around the basket, and you always kick yourself and go, 'What if? "We were going to come out swinging".

And there are plenty of what-ifs, a good handful of shots that rattled around the rim and bounced out.

"This team had a lot of question marks early in the year", head coach Lisa Fortier said.

The Spartans may face an uphill battle, but don't count them out of the fight. Davidson needed a win to get in, and they got it.

And that's why it hurts so much to lose.

Alonso got called for an offensive foul on the next possession, but Gonzaga's Rui Hachimura missed a pair of free throws.

After the Zags tied the game and forced a Spartan turnover, Norvell took a pass on the left wing a drilled his second triple of the game.

UNC-Greensboro was the best team in the Southern Conference due to their ability to defend. Her tenacious play helped Gonzaga overcome a physical semifinal battle with San Francisco and a tough, back-and-forth title game tilt with San Diego.

He's a handful. So is 6-foot-10 sophomore Killian Tillie, who averages 13.4 points and 6.0 rebounds, and 6-3 junior point guard Josh Perkins (12.4 points, 5.4 assists), who had taken 60 percent of his shots this season from beyond the 3-point line and made 41 percent of them.

UNC GREENSBORO - Dickey 5-10 0-2 10, Smith 2-10 0-0 4, Kuiper 3-9 0-1 7, Alonso 6-17 3-4 16, Troy 8-11 0-0 16, Galloway 1-3 0-0 3, Collins 0-0 0-0 0, Massey 1-2 2-2 4, Miller 2-5 0-1 4, Sykes 0-0 0-0 0. TO that end, the Spartans average 44.70% in field goals (Gonzaga averages 50.40%) and 70.20% in free throws, compared to the Bulldogs' 72.30%.

INSIDE FORCE: Gonzaga built its 12-point lead in large thanks to Johnathan Williams, who led the Zags with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
