Zags get first win in NCAA tournament

The Jackrabbits of South Dakota State University, the No. 16 seed, led No. 1 seed Gonzaga for most of the first half, but Goliath took over in the second half.

Gonzaga will open against South Dakota State (18-16) and Arizona will play its first-round game against North Dakota (22-9), both in Salt Lake City. Karnowski, Jordan Matthews, Zach Collins and Johnathan Williams all score in double figures. This was only the fourth time this season Gonzaga has been held under 70 points and only the second time it shot worse than 40 percent (39.7).

Gonzaga tips off against South Dakota State tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. PDT and if they win, will play the victor of Vanderbilt and Northwestern.
