The Gonzaga Bulldogs and Georgia State Panthers face off on Thursday in a Round of 64 NCAA Tournament game at the Moda Center in Portland. 

Gonzaga is the number one overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and they currently sit with a 26-3 record overall. The Bulldogs won the WCC regular season and postseason title. In the last game against Saint Mary’s the offense put up 82 points and they cruised to the victory. Gonzaga is a strong offensive team but at times they have had some players struggle including Chet Holmgren, who the team needs to be better this season. Drew Timme has been the top player for Gonzaga averaging 17.5 points while shooting 58.8 percent from the field and 28 percent from behind the three point line. Gonzaga is averaging 87.8 points while their defense is giving up 65.5 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Georgia State Panthers who sit with an 18-10 record but they were able to win the Sun Belt Conference title. In the last game against Louisiana, the offense scored 80 points and won by nine points. This is a perfect example of a team getting hot at the right time and they have won 10 games in a row. The Panthers are averaging 70.6 points while their defense is giving up 64.8 points per game. Guard Corey Allen has been the top player for Georgia State averaging 14.7 points while shooting 37.2 percent from behind the three point line and 35.5 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players are averaging at least 11.2 points per game. In this game if Georgia wants a chance the defense is going to need to step up.

Georgia State is hot coming into this game, but this is a much different beast going up against Gonzaga. I expect a complete performance from the Gonzaga offense, and this game is going to get out of hand early. This is a game that it wouldn’t shock me if Gonzaga was able to reach 100 points. Back Gonzaga to win this game and cover the spread.
