The Gonzaga men’s basketball team, making its 11th-straight appearance in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, drew Akron and will play in Portland on Thursday in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
The Zags, 26-5 overall and a perfect 14-0 in the West Coast Conference, won the WCC postseason tournament last Monday, gaining an automatic berth into the tournament.
Gonzaga is the No. 4 seed in the South Region.
Meanwhile, the University of Washington Huskies also will make a short road trip to Portland. The Dawgs, the Pac-10 regular season champions, drew a No. 4 seed in the West Region and will face No. 13 Mississippi State on Thursday.
