Florida State is really good. I’m not sure there’s another team in the country you could call definitively better than the Seminoles, who have physically intimidating size and athleticism all over the floor.
But Gonzaga was an eight-point favorite on Thursday night and covered with a 72–58 win. It was chippy all night but the Bulldogs took the ‘Noles’ best shot and got redemption for when FSU knocked Gonzaga out in the same spot last season.
It was the type of win that can fuel a team going forward, namely in this game, two days later that represents a chance to go to the Final Four.
Two years ago, Gonzaga reached its first Final Four and National Title game in school history. This year, it feels like the ‘Dogs are legitimate favorites to win their first ever National Championship, unless that team of freshman from Durham spoil the party.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech was really good in the first half against Michigan on Thursday night and downright dominant in the second. The Red Raiders tallied a 19-point win to advance to their second regional final in a row.
Last year, it felt like Tech stretched as far it could go in getting to the Elite Eight before losing to the eventual National Champions, Villanova.
It kind of feels the same way this season. Michigan didn’t play well on Thursday and it was a nice matchup for Tech, at least in the sense that the Wolverines didn’t have any major mismatches to attack.
Texas Tech’s bigs are solid, even more than solid. That said, they haven’t faced many guys like Rui Hachimura and Killian Tillie. Both can put it on the floor, step outside, and hit from the perimeter. That really puts a lot of stress on even some of the best bigs at the collegiate level.
Then there’s how Tech scores enough to keep up with the Zags, who are so well balanced on offense. There’ll be a lot of onus on Jarrett Culver to hit at least 25 in this game. He’s been a star all season but if the Zags can key in on a guy, and they will key in on Culver, it’s really hard.

Free Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Prediction: Gonzaga gets back to the Final Four with a double-digit win.
There just aren’t any cracks in this team. The bigs are relentless and flexible enough to switch out onto the perimeter. The guards are smart and quick. I’ve had Gonzaga going all the way and what they’ve shown me so far has me thinking nothing to the contrary. The Zags will be tested but, at the same time, shouldn’t have much trouble passing.
