Region-by-region breakdowns of the 2017 NCAA tournament NCAA tournament bracket analysis: Tough West region

Gonzaga, now 33-1, moves on to face the victor of No. 8 Northwestern vs. "I mean, just scores the ball so easy.ball goes in, never seems to get rattled, has the ultimate green light, has great confidence, shooting out to 28 feet is not a problem nor is it a bad shot", Gonzaga head Coach Mark Few said. The college basketball odds for the game have the Bulldogs listed as a huge favorite to pick up the win. "(But) you can't expect to play a flawless season, and the one game they happened to not play a ideal game, BYU played very well. "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. Plus, 10-seed Wichita State (30-4) might be the most disrespected team in NCAA tournament seeding history.

They'll also be hoping to end the 128-game losing streak among No. 16 seeds (not counting First Four and/or play-in games). Colson leads Notre Dame in scoring (17.5 points per game) and rebounding (10.4). The Jackrabbits (18-16) locked in their second straight NCAA bid by winning six straight and nine of their last 11 games - culminating in a 79-77 victory over Nebraska-Omaha to clinch the Summit League Tournament title. We take a lot of 3s and defend the 3 well. The game is today at 1 p.m., and airs on TBS.

Schefter: Dont'a Hightower To Re-Sign With Patriots
Even so, that may not be enough to lure Hightower away; after all, he has won two Super Bowls with the Patriots during his tenure. With Hightower headed back to New England, the Steelers' quest to replace inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons continues.

It was a terribly unattractive game in the first half, which happened to take place in the morning in Gonzaga's time zone. From there, just pray the defending champs have a 6-for-26 shooting game like they did in a January loss to Butler. "We knew on the defensive end we were doing our jobs, and eventually, the shots were going to fall", Collins said.

Williams threw down another vicious slam with 12:43 left as Gonzaga ran its lead to double-digits at 48-33 while holding the Jackrabbits scoreless for just over four minutes midway through the half.

NCAA Tournament: Breaking down the South Region
This year's final four and national championship game will be played at American Airlines Center in Dallas. Syracuse has always been slotted in as a six-seed in the Lexington region on ESPN's projections .

Complementing Williams-Goss on the inside is a tough frontcourt that features leading rebounder Johnathan Williams (6.5 rebounds), mammoth center Przemek Karnowski and sixth man Zach Collins.

"Everybody is always focused on Gonzaga's offense, and we've been an elite program offensively for years", Few said.
