Both teams Gonzaga vs North Carolina Live Stream Online survived narrow wins Saturday night to extend their 2017 season into college basketball’s final evening, with the Bulldogs holding off a second-half charge from South Carolina and the Tar Heels avoiding potentially disastrous missed free throws with offensive rebounds to bleed out the clock in a one-point win against Oregon.
1. Gonzaga is the best ATS team in the country
North Carolina opened out in Las Vegas as a narrow (-2) betting favorite, but experts are already starting to line up on Gonzaga’s side and the against-the-spread stats suggest it is wise to be wary of the Bulldogs. Gonzaga had one of the best records against the spread in all of college basketball this season (23-10-2, per TeamRankings.com), beating the oddsmaker’s number 69.7 percent of the time and beating the spread by an average of 4.9 points per game.
2. Both teams dominate major statistical categories
Another factor in experts picking the Vegas underdog Gonzaga is KenPom’s projections favoring the title game rookies from the West Coast Conference. Gonzaga is the No. 1 team in KenPom’s ratings, North Carolina is No. 3 and both squads have been among the top teams in the country in several key categories.
Williams-Goss is the engine of a Gonzaga attack that shoots 50.8 percent from the field, second-best in the country. His 16.9 scoring average leads five Bulldogs in double figures.
Senior center Przemek Karnowski is a load inside at 7-foot-1 and 300 pounds, while freshman 7-footer Zach Collins is a future first-round NBA draft choice. He had 14 points against the Gamecocks, setting career highs with 13 rebounds and six blocked shots.
They will be matched up, in part, against North Carolina’s sturdy man in the middle, senior Kennedy Meeks. He is not often called upon to be a leading scorer, but when the Tar Heels went cold against Oregon, Meeks dominated with 25 points on 11-of-13 shooting. He added 14 rebounds, eight on the offensive glass.
Gonzaga just needs to play like it has all season
Ken Pomeroy puts the Zags as the favorite to win the game, but if you listen to a majority of the talking heads, Gonzaga is going be the underdog going into this game, because you know…it’s North Carolina.
But the thing about this team, they have only faltered once this season, in a game against BYU where everything went wrong. The rest of the time, and this NCAA Tournament, every time the opposition has given their strongest punch, the Zags have punched back even harder. It isn’t pure luck that the Zags are here. They have executed their game plan on the offensive and defensive end of the floor, and they have been the best team in the country when that is clicking. Now, they have the chance to firmly make that statement.
It will not come easy. No Gonzaga win in March ever comes easy, but don’t listen to the rest of the world, who are ready to make this some sort of David vs. Goliath matchup. We aren’t the plucky underdogs anymore who “shock” the nation. We are the Gonzaga Bulldogs and we are in the 2017 NCAA championship game. We belong here, and we are going to show the rest of the world that, whether or not they are ready to see it.
