Why They Go Deep

From ESPN.com: "Some used Saint Mary's as Exhibit A for their argument against Gonzaga capturing a top seed. But the Gaels have had one of America's most explosive offenses (top 20, per ESPN Sports Analytics) this season. With 22 seconds to play, Saint Mary's was down by two against SEC champ LSU in December after Jordan Ford (21.3 PPG) hit a clutch 3-pointer." 

With a 19-14 record Against The Spread this season, the Gaels are a team to be reckoned with during the Big Dance.

Why Be Concerned

19-14 Against The Spread on the season but they have only covered in four of their last ten.  Their only two losses Straight Up were to Gonzaga over this time frame but they finally figured out how to beat them.  It should be noted that the 2/9 loss to the Zags was 46-94.

Who They Will Play

Villanova opened as a -5 favorite against Saint Mary's.  This is the time of year when the Wildcats do their best work even though they lack a lot of the talent of last year’s title team.
