How Gonzaga Wins

Gonzaga will win the game if they keep shooting and making 3 point shots. They rank 7th in the nation in 3 point percentage as they make 41% of them. The Bulldogs are going to need to grab the rebounds to have a better chance at winning. They rank 101st in the nation in rebounds with 36.4 per game.

 

How Memphis Wins

Memphis will win this game if they keep scoring a lot of points. They rank 22nd in the nation in points as they average 79.8 per game. The Tigers are also one of the better passing teams and they rank 5th in the nation in assists as the average 17.4 per game. Memphis needs to also keep playing great defense and getting steals. They rank 5th in the country in steals as they average 9.5 per game.

 

My Prediction

Gonzaga wants to get out and shoot a lot of 3 pointers since they make 41% of the 3 pointers they shoot. Memphis wants to move the ball to the open person and then score a lot of points. Whichever team does what they want will have a better chance of winning the game.

I think that with home court advantage Memphis will play to their style and score a lot of points. Gonzaga will make it a close game because of how well they shoot the 3 point shot but I think Memphis will win the game.

Final Score

Memphis: 83
Gonzaga: 78
