Gonzaga-South Dakota State: 3 keys to the Bulldogs' 66-46 win

The Gonzaga Bulldogs play the South Dakota Jackrabbits in one of the NCAA Tournament basketball March Madness games on Thursday, start time at 2:00 PM ET, at Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City.

- Mathews is 3 of 6 for seven second half points, to lead the Zags up to a 48-35 lead with 13 minutes left.

Defense has been significant for Gonzaga throughout the season, something that bears out by the fact that it has held opponents to just 61.2 points per game, which ranks seventh in the nation.

Mike Daum led South Dakota State with 17 points, but guard Reed Tellinghuisen was 1 for 10 from three-point range and the Jackrabbits shot only 31 percent as a team.

Melo Trimble, Maryland. Maryland will probably go as far as Trimble, now in his junior year, will take them. The Jackrabbits unlikely run thought the Summit League Tournament was highlighted by a comeback win over South Dakota in the semifinal and narrow win against Omaha in the title game. We take a lot of 3s and defend the 3 well.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bulldogs are now 22.5-point favorites versus the Jackrabbits after opening as a 20.5-point favorite. They came in with nine wins in their last 11 games.

Gonzaga was rewarded with its second No. 1 seed ever and will start in the same place the Bulldogs did the other time they got it in 2013. He's just out there playing basketball and having fun as we all are.

Jaffar has now been charged with burglary and stalking, and because of this is also banned from getting in contact with Swift. But that didn't stop him from showing up at least four more times.

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

Guards Jordan Matthews (16 points) and Josh Perkins (10 points) and big men Zach Collins (10 points) and Przemek Karnowski (10 points) led the Bulldogs to Saturday's second round, where they'll face either No. 8 Northwestern or No. 9 Vanderbilt.

"The ability that they have to play and win in different styles is something that most Gonzaga teams haven't had", Dickau 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've been great on the road all year.

The three point shooting and free throw shooting was also bad. "We knew they were a very good team. He just scores the ball so easy, the ball goes in, never seems to get rattled", said Few.

Gonzaga will face the victor of Vanderbilt and tournament debutant Northwestern in Saturday's second round at Vivint Arena.
