Starters: Nigel Williams-Goss – guard, Josh Perkins – guard, Jordan Mathews – guard, Johnathan Williams – forward, Przemek Karnowski – forward
Top scorer: Nigel Williams-Goss, 16.7 ppg
Reb. leader: Johnathan Williams, 6.6 rpg
Assists leader: Williams-Goss, 4.6 apg
Best player: Point guard Nigel Williams-Goss may be Gonzaga’s most important or least replaceable player, but during the NCAA Tournament the best player has been forward Johnathan Williams. The forward has made 56 percent of his 3-pointers, 61 percent inside the arc and played stellar defense on the other teams’ best scorers.
How to win: The Bulldogs boast balance but struggled against West Virginia’s pressure defense during the Sweet 16. The best bet to beat the Zags appears to be pressuring the ball-handlers early in the possession to keep the ball out of the hands of GU’s fearsome big men.
