Gonzaga Bulldogs

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.
