For generations the best hoops program on the West Coast was UCLA. Now I think it is safe to say that Gonzaga has that label and a chance to get to the title game with a win tonight.
UCLA has been a great story with five NCAA Tournament wins already. Gonzaga has been the most dominant team in the sport all season long. It is no accident that they are significant favourites in this one.The buzz is the number might even rise as tipoff gets closer.
UCLA has been a great story. In their last two game they have shown they can compete with the best teams in the country, beating Alabama in overtime and Michigan by a bucket to advance. Those are very high quality teams but both would have been serious underdogs against Gonzaga too, that is what the Bruins are facing.
It was nice to see Mick Cronin return to his defensive roots in the win against Michigan, holding the Wolverines to just 51 points. Johnny Juzang scored 28 points, more than half the team’s total. If that is what it is going to take to win against Gonzaga I don’t like those odds. The Zags score against everyone and they will have a gameplan to neutralize a singular player. Where does UCLA go from there.
The Bulldogs have not been challenged in the NCAAs. USC, with their length and imposing defense was supposed to provide some measure of resistance but that game was over before the end of the first half even though Corey Kispert was kind of a non-factor. That is the amazing thing about Gonzaga. They win and score in so many ways and it is hard to keep them down.
Gonzaga won with ease thanks to the inside play of Drew Timme and the all-around game of Jalen Suggs. The duo were fantastic and there is no reason to think they won’t be again. It is amazing the way that Gonzaga just works their stuff and takes advantage of mismatches. All three of their top players could force it but they don’t. That is a sign of really good coaching.

Free UCLA Bruins vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
This is a huge line for where we are in the Tournament. Usually, we see one possession, maybe two. That is how good this Gonzaga team is.
One thing to factor in is that a lot of books have futures money on the Zags and might be more willing to keep this line fluid to try and balance it out. Something to think about for the future too.
Gonzaga has proven all season long there is no team that they can’t stomp. Even when they have been starting slow in the Tournament they eventually find their rhythm against teams and win big. I don’t think UCLA is the team to avoid that fate.
