Goodson hits game-winner for GU

Gonzaga blew a nine-point lead in the final 2:15, but freshman guard Demetri Goodson hit a running bank shot from 8 feet with 0.9 seconds left  to give the Bulldogs a thrilling 83-81 victory over Western Kentucky.

Matt Bouldin led GU with 20 points and Jeremy Pargo added 18. WKU guards A.J. Slaughter and Orlando Mendez-Valdez combined for 49 points.

Gonzaga moves on to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2006. GU will face top-seeded North Carolina in Memphis.
