Gonzaga vs Creighton Preview
Creighton was fortunate to avoid an upset in the first round against No. 12 UC Santa Barbara, but turned it up for their Round of 32 matchup with Ohio, besting the Bobcats 72-58 in a game they had under control nearly from start to finish.
It was Creighton’s leading scorer, Marcus Zegarowski, who came through big, scoring 20 points in the win. All but four points came from the Bluejays starting lineup.
“It’s a phenomenal feeling,” Zegarowski said. “This is a two-year kind of thing for us. We had it taken away from us last year. Everything we’ve been through this year is for moments like this, and I’m happy we capitalized and came through.
“But you know, we’re not done yet. This just the start.”
Gonzaga has rarely been tested this season, winning all but one of their games during a 28-0 run by double-digits. The Bulldogs beat No. 16 Norfolk State by 43 points in the first round and cruised by No. 5 Oklahoma 87-71.
“We’ve been celebrating every one of these wins. We celebrated the other night. We celebrated this one. If we’re lucky enough to get another one, we’re going to celebrate like crazy for that one,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said after beating Oklahoma. “This tournament needs to be celebrated, man.”
Gonzaga is trying to win its first tournament title and punch its ticket back to the Final Four for the second time in program history.
“We’re not satisfied with this,” said Gonzaga star Drew Timme, who scored 30 against the Sooners. “This is not the end goal.”
Gonzaga is the second-highest scoring team in the nation at 92.1 points per game, with four players averaging double-figures. That includes Timme (18.8 points) and Corey Kispert (19.2) who is also a Wooden Award finalist.
“This team is one of the best passing college basketball teams that I’ve ever seen,” Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. “If you make a mistake, they’re going to make you pay for it with a pass. It’s one thing to be unselfish and another thing to be unselfish and have the ability to deliver the pass on time and in the right spot.”
Gonzaga is a 13.5-point favorite for the matchup, with the total set at 158.5. The Bulldogs are 2-0 all-time against the spread against Creighton.
