Gonzaga is good and I expect them to win , however I just believe that the Big 12 can slow any game down and stay competitive.

14 is a big number for the Tournament but its for good reason. Baylor got past Syracuse on the strength of a hot perimeter shooting that is unlickey to repeat itself. Another major factor was the fact that the Orange had suspended Frank Howard before the game, which forced Tyus Battle to run the point instead of being a scorer first. The Bears are now going to have to contend with a dangerous Gonzaga team that has plenty of weapons, especially with Tillie back in the mix. The Bulldogs have too much talent for most teams to contend with, and not even Baylors good defensive presence can keep them in this one. Look for Gonzaga to run their way to a win and a berth in the Sweet 16.

Baylor is one of the best rebounding teams in tournament and have the size to compete with Gonzaga in the paint. If Baylor shoots like they did against Syracuse then I like the Bears to put up a fight in this game. Zags win but this one could be closer than what Vegas is predicting.

Gonzaga has had its problems covering the number this season due to facing so many double-digit point spreads. The Bulldogs bounced back well from their loss to Saint Marys in the West Coast Conference tourney title game and easily covered their opener behind the play of Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke and I look for more of the same versus Baylor. Score prediction, Gonzaga 85- Baylor 68

8th Seed Baylor knocked off Syracuse 78-69 in their first-round matchup- prior to this game the Baylor Bears had lost 4 in a row. As expected Gonzaga made quick work of 16th-seeded Fairleigh Dickinson 87-49 in their first-round game. I predict this is going to be tough for Baylor, sure the Bears just beat a good Syracuse team but the Orange were short handed and didn't have suspended Frank Howard available for that game. Not to mention Baylor shot lights out from the arc in that game. The Bears are now going to have to contend with a dangerous Gonzaga team averaging 88 points per game and the Bulldogs get Tillie back for this game. The Bulldogs have too much talent for most teams to contend with and that includes and average team from the Big 12. I predict Gonzaga emphatically punches their ticket to the Big Dance. Lay the points.

Gonzaga Bulldogs (53% consensus). Any doubt that Gonzaga was still a legitimate NCAA title contender after its ugly 60-47 loss to Saint Mary's in the West Coast Conference Tournament final were quickly put to rest when it bounced Fairleigh Dickinson 87-49 in the first round of the West Regional on Thursday in Salt Lake City. The top-seeded Zags will try to advance to the Sweet 16 for the 10th time in school history on Saturday night when they face ninth seed Baylor, which knocked off Syracuse 78-69 in its tournament opener... http://bit.ly/2CYQc23
