PITTSBURGH - In a tournament that has seen almost all of the higher seeds win to date it shouldn't be a shock that the No. 7 seed advanced to face the Buckeyes in Saturday's third round game with a berth in the Sweet 16 hanging in the balance.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs easily dispatched the West Virginia Mountaineers on Thursday to set up this 2 vs. 7 matchup. But what do the Bulldogs know about Ohio State? If they look at Thursday's tape it looked like a one-man show with DeShaun Thomas going nuts for 31 points and the rest of the team struggling to find any sort of pulse.
But scouting is not based upon one game and the Zags have plenty of experience, especially with head coach Mark Few who is no stranger to the NCAA Tournament but the Sweet 16 has eluded Few in four of the last five NCAA appearances.
We caught up with a pair of Bulldogs to talk about what they know about Ohio State on the eve of the pivotal game.
