Three things to know about Gonzaga, Ohio State's next NCAA tournament opponent

Silas Melson and the Gonzaga Bulldogs will open NCAA Tournament play Thursday in Boise

West region 4-seed Gonzaga entered Thursday's game against 13-seed UNCG having won its last nine NCAA tournament openers.

Josh Perkins tied the game at 64, and after Greensboro's Francis Alonso forced up a miss, Gonzaga got the rebound and worked the ball to Norvell, a redshirt freshman, who spotted up from the right elbow and made the 3 for the lead. Marvin Smith got a good look at a possible game-tying 3 with 12 seconds left that went halfway down and out.

"He has a knack for that", coach Mark Few said.

How much will it cost you if you decide to travel to Boise to watch the Zags take on UNC Greensboro? Gonzaga led 32-23 at halftime after the Spartans missed the first 13 3-pointers they attempted. TO that end, the Spartans average 44.70% in field goals (Gonzaga averages 50.40%) and 70.20% in free throws, compared to the Bulldogs' 72.30%.

AP assembly passes resolution on Special Category Status
It is much higher for our state which was divided against the public will and is in hard situations after unjustifiable division. This House strongly condemns the callousness of the Centre towards rescuing the state.

Things opened up in the second, and behind Alonso and Troy Demetrius (16 points each), UNCG chipped away, finally taking the lead on Jordy Kuiper's tip-in.

Demontrae Jefferson, a 5-foot-7 guard, had 25 points and eight rebounds to lift No. 16 seed Texas Southern (16-19), which became the first team with a losing record to win a tournament game. UNCG may have had a chance for a comeback, but turned it over and the Zags finished the game. Gonzaga vs UNC Greensboro live stream is on TNT.

However, the battle-tested Zags prevailed, and will take on the victor of Ohio State vs South Dakota State on Saturday.
