2012 NCAA Tournament Predictions: Gonzaga Picked To Move To Round Of 32

SB Nation is in agreement when it comes to the Gonzaga Bulldogs - they should advance to the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.

Slipper Still Fits and SB Nation's Bill Connelly both have the Bulldogs winning their first round matchup against West Virginia as the 7-10 matchup in the East Region.

SSF only speaks on the first round matchup but Connelly - who posted all of his picks for the tournament - went further and has Gonzaga falling to no. 2 seed Ohio State in the second round.

SSF knows that the Zags will have their hands full with Mountaineers senior forward Kevin Jones who is averaging 20.1 points and 11.1 rebounds per game this season.

ESPN's Andy Katz lists it as his most intriguing game in the region and ESPN's Doug Gottlieb pointed out the contrasting styles make for an interesting game. The Mountaineers are more of a physical team while the Zags are finesse. But neither made a pick.
