Location: Viejas Arena at Aztec Bowl (San Diego, CA)
Announcers: Andrew Catalon, Mike Gminski, Otis Livingston (Lets hope there isn’t another announcing gaffe)
Opening Betting Line: Arizona -6.5 (127) via Odds Shark
Prediction: Gonzaga is riding a six-game winning streak and must be one of the more confident “higher” seeds left in the tourney. But, Arizona possesses one of the nation’s top defenses; if not the best. That defense, along with the offense that the sensational Nick Johnson and Aaron Gordon can unleash, will end the ‘Zags’ winning streak at six. In the second half, Arizona will run away with this game, advancing to the Sweet 16. Chalk, I know.
