Mar 22 Written by Benjamin Hayes

Florida State takes on Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 from Los Angeles. Fourth-seeded Gonzaga beat Ohio State, 90-84 on March 17 to get arrive at the Staples Center. FSU shocked No. 1 Xavier to meet up with the Zags.

Florida State is a huge team but they need a healthy guard Terance Mann to go far. He was limited due to a groin injury against Xavier. He averages 12.7 points and 5.5 rebounds for a very deep team. The Noles can go 10 deep and they wore down the Musketeers, who blew a lead late in the game. It was P.J. Savoy who hit the go-ahead three with 1:08 left in the game to beat Xavier.

Freshman guard Zach Norvell Jr. had 28 points, 12 rebounds and six 3-pointers in the Zags win over Ohio State. He averages 12.7 points, while guard Johnathan Williams leads with 13.6 points. Like the ‘Noles, this is a very deep and balanced team that just doesn’t rely on one big scorer.

Both teams want to push the pace in this one. FSU is very athletic even though their first two games went under. Gonzaga has gone over in five of their last seven. They are 6-2 Over their last 8 neutral site games. FSU is 5-1 Over their last 6 Thursday games.
