Gonzaga pulls away from South Dakota State after sluggish first half

Gonzaga woke up in the second half of its opening round matchup against South Dakota State after holding a close 26-22 lead at halftime, putting away the Jackrabbits in a 66-46 victory.

The top-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs are playing the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in college basketball action on Thursday afternoon.

- Mathews is 3 of 6 for seven second half points, to lead the Zags up to a 48-35 lead with 13 minutes left. Gonzaga shot 31 percent from the field in the first half. "The goal was to win championships, and for Gonzaga, the way they break it up is play in a preseason tournament and win a championship, where you're gonna play either three games in three days or three games in four days to kinda simulate a conference tournament or the NCAA tournament", he said.

They started the game shooting 7-of-20 and went into halftime 9-of-29 from the field, including 2-of-14 from three.

Nothing comes easy for the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the NCAA Tournament.

Gonzaga won easily by double-digits, despite a less than stellar game offensively.

Their opponents, top-seeded Gonzaga, have taken notice of his recent play. Once they did, they never looked back. Oklahoma and Baylor have met twice this season, with the Bears prevailing in both games by an average of 36 points.

Ibobi quits as Manipur CM, BJP stakes claim
"The people of Goa have defeated the BJP", said Singh who is here in Goa to oversee the party's affairs after counting of votes. Moreover, the party could have protested before the state governor and convince her by presenting the list of supporters.

Lock of the day: No. 16 seeds are 0-128 since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

If you like to root for the little guy, you can root for Mount St. Mary's and its little guy.

Mark Few also responded to an article that a Spokane-native had wrote claiming that the only thing Spokane has going for them is Gonzaga basketball. "We knew on the defensive end we were doing our jobs, and eventually, the shots were going to fall", Collins said.

Gonzaga: The best team in program history, Gonzaga is old, long, balanced, and has a First Team All-American in Nigel Williams-Goss.

We're getting ahead of ourselves (but not too far ahead of ourselves; that's for a few spots later), but should the Bears and Mustangs meet in the second round, it could be as rugged and bruising a battle as the mascots' names suggest.

North Carolina commits an average of 17.8 fouls per game, therefore if Texas Southern's backcourt trio of Zach Lofton, Demontrae Jefferson and Kevin Scott can keep the Heels off balance, they may yield a lot of points at the line.

Gonzaga: Faces the victor of No. 8 Northwestern and No. 9 Vanderbilt on Saturday.
