Gonzaga Bulldogs Quotable

"We had to dig probably deeper than we've had to dig in quite a while and Loyola Marymount was the cause of that," Gonzaga coach Mark Few told reporters afterward. "They were pushing us around a little bit and beating us to balls and they definitely were the more physical team."

San Diego Toreros Quotable

"Just by trusting the belief we have in each other and understanding it's a quick turnaround," Sam Scholl told reporters after Thursday's loss. "There's another challenge right around the corner. Like in life, challenges come around very, very quickly. We're going to work responding to that challenge that's going to be here Saturday."

NCAA College Basketball Betting Trends

Gonzaga

The Bulldogs are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games versus West Coast opponents and covered the number in 11 of their previous 15 games.

San Diego

The Toreros are 6-0 at the betting window in their last six home games versus an opponent with a road winning percentage of greater than .600.

Prediction

The Bulldogs are used to covering big spreads but this Toreros team has been competitive in most games this season and I don’t see them backing down on their home court. San Diego is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games coming off a loss, is 6-1 at the betting window in its last seven home games versus a team with a winning road record and covered in four of its last five games when facing an opponent with a winning record. These two teams met just a few weeks ago in Spokane and while the Bulldogs won comfortably 85-69, they failed to cover as a 22.5-point favorite.
