March Madness Second Round Picks

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs

Gonzaga is ranked 1st on offense and 7th on defense, per KenPom. Oklahoma is ranked 34th on offense and 47th on defense. Gonzaga won comfortably in a first round blow out against 16 seed Norfolk State. Oklahoma won a tough game against 9 seed Missouri in their first round matchup. Gonzaga is undefeated on the year and is rolling teams left and right. Oklahoma has only won 2 of their last 7 games and haven’t been sharp in a month. Gonzaga will roll the Sooners in this one. Gonzaga ranks 31st in 3 point shooting %, 1st in 2 point shooting %, and 1st in Offense Effective FG %. Oklahoma ranks 146th, 142nd, and 131st in these Offensive categories. Oklahoma also does not have the defensive prowess to stop the Gonzaga. The Sooners rank 269th defending the 3 and rank 116th in Defense Effective FG %. Gonzaga will also dominate the boards. The Bulldogs rank 89th in Offensive Rebounding % and 18th in Defensive Rebounding %. Oklahoma ranks 188th and 153rd in these categories.

These are two team heading in opposite directions. This Gonzaga team is Mark Few’s best chance at a national championship and they are out for blood. Oklahoma has been struggling for a while and is limping into this game without much confidence. Oklahoma does not have the athletes and scorers to keep pace with the Zags. The first half might be close for a while, but then Reaves will go cold and Kispert will drill a few threes. In a blink of an eye the Zags will be up 20. Gonzaga -14.5 is the play. Best of luck!
