A clash of two programs who are very unfamiliar with each other. The Gonzaga Bulldogs won’t have to travel very far to play in their 20th consecutive NCAA Tournament. The Spartans of UNC Greenbsoro, on the other hand, will have to make a cross-country trek and play in front of a very pro-Gonzaga crowd if they hope to advance in their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2001.
UNC Greensboro finished the season with a program best 27-7 record and won the regular and conference tournament titles of the Southern Conference.

Gonzaga’s balanced attack
The Bulldogs may not have as much talent as they had in prior years, but this team plays together and will be a tough out in the Tournament.
Gonzaga has five players who average in double-figures:
Jonathan Williams: 13.5 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 1.6 APG
Killian Tillie: 13.4 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 1.7 APG
Josh Perkins: 12.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG, 5.4 APG
Zach Norvell Jr.: 12.2 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 2.4 APG
Rui Hachimura: 11.3 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 0.7 APG
As you can see from their numbers, all five of these Gonzaga players can do it all and no one will put themselves above the team. This type of style is conducive to Tournament success.
