Last night, Gonzaga defeated Arizona 84-80. Gonzaga had a 16 point lead with 2:15 left in the game, but Arizona was able to battle back and cut the deficit to as low as two points. Corey Kispert led the Bulldogs in scoring with 18 points while Josh Green led the Wildcats with 17 points.
Both of these teams will be a team to look out for in March. Gonzaga is always tough and very well coached. Arizona is young and have improved a ton from last season. Gonzaga has looked very impressive to me. They have had the most difficult schedule in college basketball so far in my opinion and have looked dominant. Gonzaga has one of the best front courts in college basketball and will need to rely on that later in the season. Arizona will need freshmen Josh Green and Nico Mannion to step up if they want to make an NCAA Tournament run.
