    So you're not supposed to take history into consideration when analyzing the NCAA field. Ha! The best part of the NCAA Tournament is watching all of the experts' theories go up in smoke and watching the wallflower in the office take home the pool money. >>

SPOKANE, WA - Most fans of the Gonzaga Bulldogs won't have to worry about calling in sick or playing hooky Thursday to see the Zags play their first round game on TV. The 10th-seeded Zags are scheduled to play 7th-seeded Indiana in Sacramento, CA, at approximately 7 p.m. If the Zags win, they'll face the winner of UCLA vs. Weber State on Saturday.

The Zags are entering their 9th straight NCAA tournament. They went 23-10 this year, earning an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament by winning the WCC tournament last Monday in Portland. Last year they reached the "Sweet 16" before falling to UCLA in the regionals.

If the Zags win their first and second round games in Sacramento, they will advance to the regional semifinals in San Jose, CA, March 22-24.
