The Gonzaga Bulldogs come into the second round off of their 86-65 win over McNeese last time out. Graham Ike leads the Zags in scoring with 16.5 PPG and 7.2 RPG while Anton Watson is right behind with 14.3 PPG and a team-high 7.3 RPG to lead the Zags on the glass. Nolan Hickman has 13.8 PPG with 2.7 APG and Ryan Nembhard has 12.8 PPG with 4 RPG and a team-high 6.8 APG to lead the Zags in assists while rounding out the group of double-digit scorers for Gonzaga so far this season.

Hunter Dickinson has 18 PPG with a team-high 11.1 RPG, leading the Jayhawks on the glass by averaging a monstrous double-double per game. K.J. Adams Jr. has 12.7 PPG with 4.5 RPG and 3.2 APG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Kansas so far this season. As a team, Kansas is averaging 75.3 PPG on 48.8% shooting from the field, 32.9% from three and 72.7% from the foul line this season.

Gonzaga vs. Kansas Prediction

I’m on the Bulldogs here. I didn’t love what I saw from Kansas defensively against Samford and for all intents and purposes, I think it should be Samford that should be here and not Kansas. That being said, Gonzaga looked really good against McNeese and have shown an ability to attack their opponents all over the floor. Inside, outside, you name it, I don’t see Gonzaga having any issues here. Give me the Bulldogs.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
