NCAA Tournament Bracketology 2018 - West Region

NCAA Tournament Bracketology 2018 - West Region

After grabbing everyone's attention by knocking off Kansas in Lawrence and edging West Virginia when the Mountaineers were ranked No. 2, the Red Raiders came back to Earth down the stretch with a four-game losing streak to land a No. 3 seed and a date with 2016 tournament darlings Stephen F. Austin. Gonzaga, however, should still have the edge due to their size, depth and the coaching of Mark Few.

No. 4 Gonzaga looks to return to the national championship game after coming up short in 2017. With three games in the books on Thursday, all three favorites have advanced - but it was far tighter than expected for Gonzaga and Rhode Island, with Kansas also facing an unexpected struggle from 16th-seeded Penn.

Norvell may not have the on-court tournament experience that Perkins has, but he was around for last season's run. Gonzaga is outscoring opponents by 17.4 points per game, the second-highest differential in Division I behind Cincinnati (17.8).

On the season, UNC Greensboro basketball averages 73.5 points, 37.1 rebounds and 14.1 assists per game. And even though he was 2 for 11 before his game-winner, he had the confidence to keep shooting. "So I had no choice but to make a bucket". He finished with 15 points. Junior guard Demetrius Troy tried to hit an ambitious alley-oop to a cutting James Dickey on the baseline.

"I think that's really unique now, in 2018", Miller, whose contract with the school was recently extended through 2022, said Wednesday.




Gonzaga, in its 20th straight NCAA tournament, won its first game of March Madness for the 10th straight year, though that's not the mission anymore for the Zags. The Spartans fought back and held a brief lead before a Josh Perkins long 2-pointer tied it at 64-64 with 56 seconds remaining.

But Gonzaga finished with the game's final six points - and a new name on its ever-growing list of playmakers.

"I always felt that he let us have fun and enjoy the moment", Miller said.

Super-freshman Deandre Ayton heads into the tournament on a high after raising his game to a terrifying level in the Pac-12 tournament, finishing with 32 points and double-digit rebounds in each of Arizona's final two games.
