Zags are in Seattle to take on North Dakota State

Well, I'm here in Seattle, having crossed the state this morning along with a sizable contingent of other Spokanites heading this way to lead their beloved Zags to victory tonight.

The first session of games featured a surprisingly convincing victory in the form of Northern Iowa's 71-54 slugging of Wyoming. Right now, Louisville is getting everything UC Irvine has in them, including the wrath of 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye the nation's tallest basketball player. And the folks inside Key Arena are pulling for the 13-over-4 upset.

Around 4:30, Iowa faces off against Davidson in a game whose winner will go on to play the winner of Gonzaga's 6:50 pm (estimated, probably going to be later than that) date with North Dakota State.

In a tournament that's already seen some insane upsets, you can bet Gonzaga is not looking past this NDSU team. Thankfully, Few's Crew (no one calls them that, I know) is healthy after a strong WCC tournament showing and will use its size to give the much smaller Bison fits beneath the basket. It kinda feels like a Przemek Karnowski sort of day here in dreary-and-wet-as-all-hell Seattle.

Keep an eye on NDSU guard Lawrence Alexander. The senior is one of the only starters back from last year's team that stunned Oklahoma in Spokane. He's a deadly three-point shooter, the sort of guy the Zags have had trouble with in tournament's past. But we won't think too much on that, right?
