Gonzaga did not dominate Northwestern but the time for impressions is over. Wins count the same at this stage of the game.
WVU was more impressive against Notre Dame. They were in control for the whole contest and never let the Irish find their way.
West Virginia Mountaineers
WVU only knows one way to play. The were able to put pressure on the Irish and get the win but the Zags will have more time to prepare.
The knock on the Mountaineers is always what they can get done in the halfcourt, offensively and defensively. The Zags will make them earn it.
On the perimeter they lack that one elite talent but there is a lot of scrappy guys who play hard and have something to prove. They are good at forcing turnovers and getting easy buckets.
Inside the Mountaineers have had a greater presence in the past. They are hoping that the pace of play they want to create can slow down Gonzaga.
Like many I lost the side on the Gonzaga game against NW. It was closer than expected but they advanced saving a million brackets.
Gonzaga was good enough. Top player Nigel Williams-Goss did not have a great game but still led with 20 points. He has to be better.
It was interesting that Zach Collins was more effective than Prem Karnowksi but fouls could have been a part of it. He is going to have a chance to be a factor again in a fast paced game.
The beauty of the Zags is the diversity of the personnel. They might not face a lot of teams like WVU but they can play smaller and be just as effective.

Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
I think this is a great buying spot on Gonzaga. They have not shone in their first 2 outings the way most would have liked. Two ATS losses in a row.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gonzaga -3
WVU might have a few moments where they are able to play their game but I expect the Zags to be in control throughout.
