Headed to Houston

"Second-seed Gonzaga overwhelmed seventh-seed Iowa 87-68 in a Round of 32 matchup in Seattle to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time in six years. The Zags put on an offensive clinic from the opening tip and continued to roll throughout, as the lead never slipped below double digits in the second half.

GU shot a blistering 61.5 percent from the field despite the Hawkeyes laying claim to the best field goal percentage defense in the Big Ten, holding opponents to just 39 percent on conference."
