Northwestern was lucky to escape Vanderbilt in its first round NCAA
Tournament game Thursday. The Wildcats are NCAA Tourney novices.
This also is their fifth game in 10 days.They are not good enough,
nor ready to step up to face an opponent this good.
Gonzaga could be the best team in the country and are far more
tournament tested. I find this spread short as I see the Bulldogs
While Northwestern is on Cloud Nine after getting past the
Commodores, Gonzaga is in a kill-mood. The Bulldogs defeated South
Dakota State by 20 points in their opening Big Dance game nearly
covering a 23-point spread despite a flat performance. Bulldogs
coach Mark Few was not happy with his team shooting less than 40
percent from the floor, missing 10 of 18 fgree throws and
committing more turnovers than assists.
Look for guard Nigel Williams-Goss and the rest of the Bulldogs to
play far better.
Gonzaga is superior to Wisconsin and the Badgers waxed the
Wildcats, 76-48, last Saturday in the Big 10 Conference Tournament.
Gonzaga is 20-5-1 ATS versus above .500 opponents.
