NWSB insider Blair Thomas brings us his love em hate em list from the Gonzaga Bulldogs first round win over the West Virginia Mountaineers in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

NWSB Managing Editor “Q” weighs in with his West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs Thursday CBB basketball Preview and a free prediction to boot. College basketball odds favor the Bulldogs by 1. The total is set at 132.5. GONZAGA are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. Kevin Pangos and Elias Harris lead the team in scoring but Robert Sacre is on the hot seat today.
NWSB Insider and Gonzaga Bulldogs blogger Blair Thomas tells us if Gonzaga gets by West Virginia, they will desperately need center Robert Sacre to be engaged at both ends of the floor to combat Ohio State center Jared Sullinger. Sacre is a significant asset, as he averaged 11.7 points per game this year. Junior forward Elias Harris has been playing his best basketball of the season.
