The Bulldogs had to really grind to get into this spot.
Gonzaga trailed 58-55 with just 2 minutes to play against West Virginia in their Sweet 16 battle on Thursday night. The Bulldogs didn’t allow the Mountaineers to score another point as they held off for a 61-58 victory.
The Mountaineers trailed by 3 points with just 24 seconds to go and got 4 really poor shots off in the final seconds.
Gonzaga had 4 different players finish in double figures, 3 of them with 13 points. That’s been the story for Gonzaga this season, as they continue to get production from different players every single game.
Jordan Matthews finished with 13 points and 3 rebounds in the win, as he hit the go ahead bucket for the Zags.
They’ll continue to use their depth here on Saturday as they like to work various players in and out.
The Musketeers continue to pull off upset after upset.
First, it was Maryland. Then they followed things up with a huge win over Florida State, a game where they led throughout.
Then, in the Sweet 16, Xavier pulled off an incredible upset as they took down the Arizona Wildcats behind a Sean O’Mara layup with just 44 seconds to go.
Xavier is doing absolutely everything right so far. They continue to get big bucket after big bucket when it’s needed, along with big stop after big stop.
They forced Arizona into 2 very difficult shots down the stretch of Thursday’s contest.
For Xavier to do it again here, it’s going to take a lot.
They’ll focus more on the defensive side of things, as closing out on shooters is an absolute must. You simply cannot give this Gonzaga team any open shots whatsoever.
