After getting a 13-seed and a 12-seed on their way to the Sweet-16, FSU’s level of competition takes a major step up in Anaheim. First up are the Gonzaga Bulldogs (32-3), the No. 1 seed in the region. Thanks to a missed UCF tip-in at the buzzer, Gonzaga remains the only team to beat the Duke Blue Zions at full strength. Their three losses on the season were on the road against a 1-seed (UNC), and neutral site games to a 2-seed (Tennessee) and an 11-seed (St. Mary’s).
They have the most efficient offense in the nation, and a top-20 defense.
