The Bears have been all over the place this year, as they have some fantastic wins (i.e. @ Kentucky) and some horrid losses (i.e. vs. Charleston). They have had games where they have scored 97 points (St. John’s) and games in which they have scored 59 (Charleston). They’ve allowed as many as 78 (St. John’s) or as few in a reasonable game as 55 (Kentucky). Meanwhile, the Zags have been a heck of a lot more consistent, really only falling over one bump in the road over the course of the season. They were beaten by Illinois in the last major game played here at the Kennel 85-74, but since that point, they have fired back with easy blowouts over Kansas State and Campbell. The club is 11-3 ATS in its last 14 home games as well, and that’s more than good enough for us to want to back a team that we really think could legitimately be in the Final Four this year when push comes to shove. Gonzaga is 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS in two games against the Bears in school history, and this is the time to add to those marks.
