West Virginia Mountaineers vs Gonzaga Bulldogs Predictions

Watching West Virginia hoops is fun because they like to press the pace and run fast. They average over ten steals a game and average over 84 points per game which is always fun to watch. The Zags have a junior point guard in Nigel-Williams Goss which will help with the press, but they will try ad run. That is a mistake. The Mountaineers will invite this pace and that will draw fouls which is always important in a close game. In the end another big team will bite the dust.
