The over/under total sits at 135.5 points after opening at 136 points.

Injuries: Neither Gonzaga nor UNC-Greensboro has any significant injuries that should impact this contest.
Our Prediction: UNC-Greensboro is a strong defensive team, but the Spartans haven’t had their defense travel well. They give up 71.1 per game on the road after allowing just 63 per game in general. Gonzaga is playing some of its best basketball of the season right now after running through the West Coast Conference Tournament. I think the Bulldogs may be the team to beat in the region and I expect their run to start with a dominant showing this afternoon.
