Gonzaga not dominating Santa Clara in the way it did twice in the regular season (Zags won by 31 & 35 points), but this game is a good primer for NCAA tourney. Zags proving they can handle a team that slows the game and limits possessions like the Broncos have.

Santa Clara could be a half-game away from No. 4 Gonzaga in the WCC if it wins on Thursday. But that's a tall order against the Zags, first in the conference and ranked 16th nationally in scoring offense at 85.6 points per game. (11 p.m. ET on ESPNU/WatchESPN)
