West Region Predictions: Gonzaga Ready As 1-Seed?


The slipper no longer needs to fit for Gonzaga, and that's because they're no longer Cinderella, they're a favorite. After receiving their first 1-seed in school history, Gonzaga has a real shot at making the Final Four. An extremely hot Ohio State club, just off a Big Ten Championship, may think otherwise. 

I don't see a lot of big time upsets happening in this one, but I do think that New Mexico was overrated as a 3-seed. Look for Arizona to take them out. A lot of people are looking for Gonzaga to be the first 1-seed bounced from the tournament due to their weaker conference schedule, but I think they're a tough team that is bound for their first Final Four in school history to match their first 1-seed.
