No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 16 TBD: Gonzaga’s first-round opponent is still a mystery for now. Appalachian State and Norfolk State will duke it out in a play-in game on Thursday to earn the right to face the ’Zags on Saturday at 9:20 p.m. ET/6:20 p.m. PT.

  • Gonzaga has the most efficient offense in the country, while App State and Norfolk State are not even in the top 200. Yikes. Whoever the ’Zags’ opponent is, this should be light work for them.

No. 14 EWU vs. No. 3 Kansas: Eastern Washington has a tough test against perennial power Kansas on Saturday 1:15 p.m. ET/10:15 a.m. PT. But Kansas is dealing with COVID-19 issues and their player availability is in flux. Can the Groves bros and the Eagles pull off the upset?
