NCAA Men's Basketball Gonzaga

27 March 2017, 12:49 | Shawn Tate

The result was decided.

Gonzaga limited its four NCAA Tournament opponents to 33.7 percent shooting. "What he had to say for us, that we could do it". This was a big Zaggy deal. Taking it one step further to the Elite Eight does the same. Xavier endured all of those obstacles, now the biggest obstacle left is whether they can do what no other Xavier team has done before. Happy for his team, too. That's right. Sixty years ago.

Xavier and Gonzaga for a trip to the Final Four.

Despite being a name more commonly associated with college basketball success in recent years, the LA Times notes that, like Xavier, this will only be the third time that Gonzaga has made it to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. OR upset number-one seed Kansas State 74-60 in Kansas City, Missouri.

"Wake 'em up", Dorsey said with a grin. "Wake up! Wake up!" This, even though Xavier scored a bucket late in the first half courtesy of a Gonzaga defender who slammed the ball on the floor, off a teammate and into the basket. They've all got many followers back in Karnowski's homeland who postpone their bedtimes to watch his team live on streaming television. Game tips off Sunday at 5:05 p.m. from Memphis.

"It would be awesome for the school and for the Spokane community to be able to feel good about and hang their hat on", Few said. Williams missed a season under NCAA transfer rules and was selected most outstanding player of the West Regional after scoring 19 points against Xavier.

The Final Four was the only missing piece to their resume.

"Polish dogs are served and pretty strong beer", Few said. It held teams to 36.5 percent in the regular season.

"People think West Coast kids are soft". Once upon a time, during the reign of UCLA as college basketball overlord from 1967-76, the West was totally dominant.

"Definitely not", Mathews said. But is it by happenstance? Except they never really have. "And these guys did".

Xavier lost to Gonzaga on Saturday night in the Elite Eight but the overall takeaway from the 2016-17 season will be a positive one that has important ramifications going forward for the program. Yeah, there were quite a few highlights coming out of yesterday's matchups. Let's not minimize one iota the accomplishment of the Zags in this particular year. They crushed South Dakota State 66-46 in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. There were several pregame subplots afoot before tipoff.

But the basketball matchup was the most salient and riveting plot entering Saturday's game.

Gonzaga has spent the last 19 years riding the high from climbing the midmajor mountain.

Gonzaga center Przemek Karnowski has taken just one shot but is still making a big impact at the offensive end. Gonzaga features a top-15 offense in the country and the top-ranked defense in all the land. Nope. Didn't happen. As Mack noted, it's a chore to get an inside-out game going against the Zags.

Luke Maye recorded his first career double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds, helping fuel a quick start for Carolina (30-7). Probably the toughest I've had to game plan for.

They flanked a coach who could have chased other jobs and chased players like these, but saw the grass was already green. They're really, really good. "Sometime you make a lot of shots, sometimes you don't make any at all". "They've proven it all year long". They went into the locker room down 10. They also played some zone.

Just as the West is best for a reason in 2017.

"Everybody was asking me, 'Is this your best team?' in November".
