West Coast Conference play continues as the San Francisco Dons head to Spokane to take on the undefeated Gonzaga Bulldogs.
Gonzaga, the only undefeated team left in Division I college basketball, has been wonderful all season and will look to continue its undefeated year against San Francisco.
San Francisco Dons
Sitting 4th in the WCC, the Dons have a respectable 8-6 record in conference play. The team has won games thanks to a solid defense, one that gives up just 66.5 points per game. That’s good enough for 55th in the nation out of 351 teams.
Opponents shoot just 42% from the field against the Dons and only 32% from behind the arc.
Offensively, the team isn’t nearly as good. The Dons average just 72.7 points per game, 201st in the nation.
There are only two players on San Francisco that average double figures in scoring: Ronnie Boyce III and Charles Minlend.
Boyce III averages 13.9 points on 46% shooting from the field while Minlend averages 10.2 points on 44% shooting.
The rest of the scoring is spread around quite a bit, with forward Chase Foster averaging 9.6 points and guard Jordan Ratinho averaging 8.4.
A team that can’t score is going to have an extremely difficult time against Gonzaga. To keep this game close, the Dons have to find a way to get the scorers going and have more than two players in double figures.
What is there to say about Gonzaga that hasn’t already been said? This team is fantastic and there are so many reasons why it is the last undefeated team in division I basketball.
The Bulldogs rank 8th in the nation in points allowed per game, giving up just 61.7 points. The offense is almost just as impressive, ranking 13th in the nation in points per game with 85.1. That’s nearly a plus-24 point differential.
Gonzaga gets offense from all over the court, with five players averaging double figures in points per game. Junior guard Nigel Williams-Goss leads the team with 15.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game. He also shoots an impressive 50.5% from the field.
Center Prezemek Karnowski is a force in the paints, averaging 12.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. He’s also averaging a block per game.
This Gonzaga team is nearly impossible to beat because of how great the team is on both sides of the ball. San Francisco will need to pull off something spectacular to keep up with this team.
CBB Betting Trends:
- San Francisco is 3-2 ATS in the last five games

Gonzaga has yet to lose a game and it won’t come against the Dons. Gonzaga gets the W here at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: San Francisco +22.5
Gonzaga is the best team in the country and should have no trouble winning this game. However, San Francisco can play decent enough defense to keep this game within 20 points. I like SF to cover the spread here.
