  • Zach Collins score late in the first half gave Gonzaga a lead Thursday it would never give back

And the freshman Ivanauskas never has to let go of his teammate-signed March Madness memento, but he probably also needs to make room for signs from upcoming tournaments. For Przemek Karnowski, the memories are a thing of the past. And I don't think there's any reason why we can't eventually get there.

"I think what I'll remember most is just the love that I share with my teammates, man", Law said.

"Now I'll never have negative memories in this building", Bakamus said. Going to the Sweet 16 is going to be another level.

Gonzaga 79, Northwestern 73: Top-seeded Gonzaga fought off a wild Northwestern comeback Saturday in Salt Lake City with help from an untimely technical foul on Wildcats coach Chris Collins.

Collins will get a pass because the call was so egregiously bad. The Bulldogs were stout in the second half while dispatching South Dakota State 66-46, and junior point guard Nigel Williams-Goss said his squad needs to play a much-improved game in the second round.

In the early going, the Zags controlled. He turned around in the next 20 minutes and poured in 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting, doing so with three-point shooting off the catch, a midrange game and energy on the offensive glass. The Wildcats forced 11 second-half turnovers. "We're at our best when we play with emotion". "We weren't really anxious about (that)".

Sanjay Lumpkin's collegiate career is over. Bonzie Colson led the Irish with 27 points and eight rebounds, including a career-high four 3-pointers.

As the pro-Northwestern crowd escalated in decibel count, the Wildcats reeled in big baskets.

The Bulldogs (34-1) prevailed despite making just four baskets over the final 13 minutes of the second half.

Bryant McIntosh led Northwestern with 20 points and 7 assists.

Said Mathews: "They adjusted". Theyve made two first-round exits. "Credit them. They went to the drawing board and made some big plays". If he can smooth the edges and round out his foundation, that could be just the factor that would allow this Northwestern team to turn the corner and beat teams like Gonzaga in games such as Saturday's, as well as allow Law to turn the corner towards becoming the truly special player - on both the conference and national scale - that he could be.

"The finality of the NCAA Tournament to me is the most brutal part of it", Collins said on the Spiegel and Parkins Show on 670 The Score. We had such a fun run.

Chris Collins was right.

"We had all the momentum", Collins told reporters after the game ( per Yahoo Sports ). When the replays were shown, it was clear that Zach Collins had reached up through the rim to block the shot. It's a very easy call in my opinion, but it's an honest mistake.

They call them the Cardiac 'Cats. We have to live with them. "And look, there's a lot of basketball to be played, but I do believe in my heart that if that's called correctly, we would've had a great chance to win".

Asked what will endure with him about this team, Collins spoke of the manner in which it "tackled" injuries, high-pressure moments and whatever else was in its way. A guy puts his hand through the rim and blocks the shot.
