Gonzaga celebrates after winning the West Coast Conference tournament championship

The Musketeers have had a great season, no question.

This is UNC Greensboro's third NCAA Tournament appearance ever and first since 2001. The Zags are the only team in the West Region that has both an offense and defense ranked within the Top 20 by KenPom.

"The tournament is so unique", coach Chris Mack said Sunday. "Experience helps, but being ready to play that night is the most important thing".

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, North Carolina is the favorite in the region, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of +275 to win.

Norvell finished with 15 points, with Johnathan Williams leading the way for Gonzaga with 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Josh Perkins adding 16 points.

Gonzaga will start by playing UNC Greensboro, which hails from the Southern conference.

The Spartans still rebound like insane, shoot the three better than nearly anyone in the country (they sit fifth in the nation at 41.3% from deep) and boast two lottery pick candidates in freshman Jaren Jackson Jr. and sophomore Miles Bridges, but they've landed a risky draw for a top seed that likes to play with its food.

"I always felt that he let us have fun and enjoy the moment", Miller said. "The volume wasn't up high enough to hear". The Bulls don't have the size or talent to contain Ayton inside without some good fortune, but Kentucky (a potential second-round foe as the No. 5-seed) and Virginia (the No. 1 overall seed that could be waiting in the Sweet 16) do.

However, my own personal six-pack challenge will be sitting at home and getting through a full six-pack during this match. At the end though, Randy Orton delivered an incredible RKO to win the US Title for the very first time in his career.

Houston, meanwhile, missed all five of its 3-point attempts in the frame and didn't find its rhythm in the second. Houston trailed by 15 at halftime and were down by 17 with less than five minutes to play in the third quarter.

Let them call you nativists", he said. "Wear it as a badge of honour because every day we get stronger and they get weaker". He said that Bannon understood like Trump, Matteo Salvini and Marine Le Pen that people want to control their own destiny.

No. 4 Gonzaga looks to return to the national championship game after coming up short in 2017.

UNC is 33-1 in NCAA Tournament games in its home state, with the only loss in 1979. (12.2), Rui Hachimura (11.3) and Silas Melson (9.5).

POTENTIAL UPSETS: The West Region has three games that will be popular upset picks.

For the Bulldogs, the season has been one of growth and maturation. Ohio State (+1200) is easily the worst No. 5 seed of them all. "We used that game to go to our players and say, 'Did you think it was hard to get a shot?'..."

San Diego State has been one of the West's premier programs for more than a decade, but that doesn't matter to the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

Norvell, the West Coast Conference Newcomer of the Year, redshirted last season and as a result did not have the chance to participate in Gonzaga's run to the national title game.
