Gonzaga vs UConn: Elite 8 preview

The Sweet 16 is always a big decider for at least a few teams in their tournament journey, but both Gonzaga and UConn prevailed to make their way to the Elite 8. It’s no surprise that the No. 3 Bulldogs and No.4 Huskies made it this far, but the road to the Final Four certainly won’t be any easier as the two face off on Saturday night.

UConn had very little trouble with Arkansas, running away with an 88-65 victory on their near-flawless play. Both Adama Sanogo and Jordan Hawkins had stellar games, putting up 18 and 24 points respectively. Hawkins was also 100% 9-9 from the free-throw line. Sanogo is averaging 17.6 points per game, while Hawkins’ 16.1 is nothing to scoff at. UConn is 13-7 in Big East matchups this year. 

The Bulldogs struggled with their round of 16 matchup against UCLA, narrowly spinning up a 79-76 win with a late three-pointer. On the heels of Drew Timme, who led the team with 36 points and 13 rebounds, Gonzaga sealed their jump to the next round where they will certainly be tested once again. 14-2 in WCC play, everyone will need to step up if they plan to see the light of the Final Four. 

Saturday night will see one of the best matchups of the tournament thus far as these two fan favorites face off to see who has what it takes to make it to the Final Four.
