USC vs. Gonzaga CBB Prediction:
USC and Gonzaga both picked up relatively easy home victories earlier in the week, now they square off for a primetime matchup in Vegas.
The Zags are the play in this one. USC has struggled so far against tough competition this season, and the Zags will be the toughest team yet. Gonzaga is loaded with experienced talent in their starting 5 and have decent bench depth. The Zags only loss this year was to #1 ranked Purdue, however they were leading the Boilermakers by 5 at halftime. This team can compete and beat anybody in the country, their going to be too much for USC to handle for 40 minutes. Gonzaga wins and covers from Vegas.
