North Dakota Fighting Hawks
North Dakota has dropped three games in a row. The losing streak started at Creighton against an explosive Blue Jays’ offense. It’s continued against two regional opponents: North Dakota State and South Dakota State.
KenPom has North Dakota in the late-200s out of 351 D-1 teams. He has Gonzaga about 31 points better than the Fighting Hawks, on a neutral floor. Going to the McCarthey Center is far from neutral.
Most underdogs’ best chance to compete in a game like this one is the three-point arc but it has been an enemy of North Dakota’s so far this season. The Hawks shoot 26 percent from three, which is an absurd number in today’s game of college basketball. UND has four guys — and nearly a fifth — who average at least ten points per game but it’s going to take threes to keep this game close and that just doesn’t seem mathematically plausible.
Gonzaga went to Washington in its last game and walloped a team that just beat Kansas in its backyard. The Bulldogs got 80 points out of their five starters, who were in all double-figures. Johnathan Williams led the team with 23 and Zach Norvell Jr. had 21. He kept his spot in the starting lineup, despite the return of Corey Kispert, who played 13 minutes of the bench.
Kispert is an important part of this team and Mark Few knows it. It’s telling that he is gradually easing his freshman back into the season after an ankle sprain caused him to miss several games.
The Zags have lost two tough games this season against Florida and Villanova but they may not lose another one. I am certainly a believer that this is at least a three-seed in the NCAA Tournament and at home they are awfully tough to beat. They certainly won’t lose to any team willing to go there in the non-conference.
CBB Betting Trends:
