Gonzaga comes into this game on a 10 game winning streak and is one of the best offensive teams in the country. TCU had a very nice comeback win against Arizona State in the first round, but they are going to have to play a lot better if they want to keep this game close. Gonzaga is shooting over 52% from the field and is scoring 87.4 points per game this year. It will be interesting to see how Gonzaga plays against a team from a major conference, but I think they will be fine with their high powered offense. I like Gonzaga here.
