Gonzaga vs USC Predictions & Tips


Gonzaga have torn through the opposition so far. That may change here.

The Bulldogs are rightfully the favourites, but USC have the defensive prowess to make a game of this.

They lead the nation in blocks and are one of the top rebounders. They also do a great job at limiting three-point opportunities.

That can keep USC in this and help them cover, but their sloppiness in possession could be their undoing.

  • USC lead the nation in blocks (164)
  • USC are averaging 5.3 blocks per game
  • USC are top five in total rebounds (1,223)
  • USC rank 16th in the nation in rebounds per game (39.5)
  • PAC-12 teams are 12-2 against the spread at March Madness
