A familiar group of teams, and a familiar pool of players, awaits Gonzaga this week at the Honda Center. The Seminoles are used to playing top teams, and Terance Mann along with Mfiondu Kabengele will put them over the edge in this game. Hachimura scored seven of the Zags first nine points to break a sweat.
The SuperBook has an over-under in points scored by Culver at 18.5.
Another guard that can fill it up is Indiana's Romeo Langford and in two games against MI basketball, Langford averaged just 13 points on 8-of-23 from the field. However, he rarely shoots the three, which means he primarily scores inside the arc. From the 11:58 mark to the 5:38 mark, Gonzaga missed five shots and a free throw, and turned the ball over four times. Josh Perkins and Zach Norvell are a combined 2-for-10. The Bulldogs ended up with a three-pointer in transition.
"When you play players that are that special, that can shoot from unlimited range, you just do your best as a team to make it hard for him, and then individually to make him hit tough, contested shots", Bennett said. However, free throws remain a large part in Gonzaga's scoring and the entire team is essentially great free throw shooters. He made contact with Texas Tech's Matt Mooney, who was trying to inbound the ball under the basket, drawing the call.
Texas Tech is going to be tested today like it has not been all season.

The aspirations of the proposal have been called radical; they've been called extreme, but mostly they're ridiculous. Voters "see through this Republican disgrace here in our Capitol", Markey countered.
The Red Raiders had never been to an Elite 8 in the program's history, and now Beard has gotten them there twice in three years. Gonzaga is much more spread out.
"They forced us to make plays or passes we probably shouldn't have made", Clarke said. The Bulldogs averaged a little more than 10 per game this season.
That is not always easy and we have seen that against Baylor and Florida State.
The junior guard averages 23.8 points per game despite constant attention from opposing defense and can be almost unstoppable when he gets hot. That scoring balance and strong team defense was required because the Zags got nearly nothing from their bench (five points on 2-of-6 shooting in 42 minutes), so the anticipation is that the starting five will have to shoulder most of the load against a Texas Tech defense that has been turning heads and setting records in the tournament by wearing down opponents in a grinding defensive style.
Tariq Owens was important too, notching five blocks.
