Gonzaga on Sunday found out its NCAA tournament seeding (No. 1 in the West Region), site (Salt Lake City) and opponent (South Dakota State).
The marvels of modern technology meant Gonzaga’s staff would have videotape and advanced analytics on the Jackrabbits as soon coach Mark Few completed his media obligations.
“I haven’t seen them but we will in about an hour,” Few said. “They have a great scorer in (forward Mike) Daum. I’ve heard about him, read things about him actually over the last two years.”
The Zags (32-1) and 16th-seeded Jackrabbits (18-16) tip at 11 a.m. PT Thursday at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The winner faces the No. 8 Northwestern-No. 9 Vanderbilt winner in Saturday’s round of 32.
