And just like that, the year is around. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are out of the NCAA Tournament just after remaining defeated by the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Sweet Sixteen.
It is taken me a moment to produce this, even while the recreation was on Thursday. There are no tears, no damaged hearts. The Gonzaga Bulldogs missing.
Sweet Sixteen (1) Gonzaga Bulldogs 68 vs. (4) Arkansas Razorbacks 74
It was as poor as when the Baylor Bears defeated them in the Finals. This season’s March Madness is genuinely mad. The defending champion Baylor Bears have been gone the first weekend. The selection just one staff in the nation is gone the adhering to weekend.
The Bulldogs appeared as if they did not know what strike them. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are a second-half staff, so this 1st 50 % was not so terrifying. But, yes, it was terrifying. Chet Holmgren did not score in the initial fifty percent! The Bulldogs could not get a shot! Chet was continually challenged in the paint. Fifteen crew turnovers resulted in 10 Arkansas details. I won’t converse on the individual fouls for the reason that then I’d have to start off on the state of the officiating, and I really do not want to use them as an excuse for this decline.
Holmgren scored 11 points, experienced 14 rebounds, two blocks, and fouled out with 3:29 left. Julian Strawther had 12 factors and 3 rebounds. Rasir Bolton contributed 8 details, 2 rebounds, and 1 guide.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ ground typical, Andrew Nembhard, had 7 details (sure, 7 factors), 7 rebounds, 3 helps, and 5 turnovers. The bench, consisting of Anton Watson, Hunter Sallis, and Nolan Hickman, had 5 factors, 9 rebounds, 1 block, 1 support, and 2 steals.
Arkansas’ JD Notae led his crew with 21 factors, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it by himself, and he could not get his group to do any extra than they did. Arkansas was too a great deal for them. I guess it’s not enough for Gonzaga to participate in Energy 5 groups at the commencing of their year. So probably they can tack on a few of online games in advance of the event.
Drew Timme led his workforce with 25 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 5 turnovers. He only skipped 1 absolutely free toss and was 7 of 8 from the line. To his teammates, he mentioned:
…thanks for currently being my teammates, many thanks for currently being here…thank your families and Zag Country for all the really like and aid they’ve had by means of all the items, ups and downs of this time.
Drew Timme has been the heart and soul of the Gonzaga Bulldogs for the past two many years. Will he be becoming a member of the other two users of the Terrifying Trio in the NBA? We will miss this young gentleman if he decides to declare for the NBA draft. I will be just one of the initially to bring this news to Zags Nation.
Following thirty day period, I will see you as we go above who’s declaring for the draft and any high college recruits on Gonzaga’s radar. Also, we’ll go over how several starters Mentor Mark Couple of will have to replace next season.
It’s been a enjoyment to protect the Gonzaga Bulldogs for Zag Nation and the place this period, and I simply cannot wait for the up coming season. So until my following piece, please keep risk-free and healthy out there.
