East Regional 2nd Round: (7) Gonzaga 77 – (10) West Virginia 54


PITTSBURGH, PA – On a day typically known for plenty of drama and stunning comebacks, Gonzaga followed a much different script.

The 7th-seeded Bulldogs ran away and hid from 10th-seeded West Virginia, building an early lead and cruising to a 77-54 victory in Pittsburgh.

Robert Sacre and Gary Bell, Jr. paced a balanced Bulldogs attack with 14 points apiece.  Gonzaga will meet the winner of 2nd-seeded Ohio State and 15th-seeded Loyola-Maryland.

Scott Graham and Kevin Grevey called the action on the Westwood One Radio Network.
