Gonzaga has turned into a reliable NCAA Tournament performer, and after a tight game against Greensboro, handled fifth-seeded Ohio State over the weekend. It gets a red-hot Florida State team though, that blasted Mizzou before handling Xavier, one of the best teams in the country this year.

Gonzaga and Florida State will meet Thursday night at 10:07 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on TBS.
