No. 4-seeded Gonzaga travels to the West Regional in Los Angeles this week for its fourth consecutive appearance in the Sweet 16 after defeating UNC Greensboro and Ohio State in the first two rounds in Boise last week.
On Thursday, Gonzaga will face the ninth-seeded Florida State Seminoles, who knocked off top-seeded Xavier 75-70 on Sunday. Michigan and Texas A&M will play in the other semifinal on Thursday.

StubHub was offering all-sessions tickets for $197 and Vivid Seats had a price as low as $209. SeatGeek’s all-sessions packages were up to $257 Sunday evening.
Compared to the other three sites for regional tournaments, Staples Center has some of the lowest prices across all sessions.
The Midwest Regional in Omaha, Nebraska, which features top-seeded Kansas, No. 2-seeded Duke, fifth-seeded Clemson and 11th-seeded Syracuse, had some of the priciest tickets of the four sites on Sunday.
