Gonzaga Survived Northwestern With Help From A Blown Call And A Technical

Collins was right to protest. None of us will. I don't necessarily think when you get into the NCAA tournament and have one day of prep you switch everything you're doing. Everyone calls Collins "Z-bo", but finisher seemed more appropriate on this afternoon.

Here's Collins' reaction upon hearing that the NCAA admitted the call was missed.

Moderators owned up to the missed call in a statement after the game and said this should have resulted in a basket for Northwestern. That was just as inexcusable as Collins charging the floor, bad followed by worse.

"... when a Gonzaga defender put his arm through the rim to..." It's a very easy call in my opinion, but it's an honest mistake. They're here for a reason because they're outstanding officials. They're outstanding officials. They made the calls. This is what we live for, we prepare for and we enjoy doing.

"I'm a human being, too". The postgame story was his basket interference that the refs missed, which is a shame because the story should be how well Collins has played. Then Vic Law and Scottie Lindsey slowly exited the court.

After tailing big in the first half, Northwestern mounted a comeback against Gonzaga, cutting the lead to five but getting no closer in a 79-73 loss.

With about four minutes left of playing time in Saturday's game between Northwestern and Gonzaga the wildcats were gaining quickly.

Before we get to the bigger picture, the one of Northwestern finally kicking down the NCAA Tournament door, let's look at a smaller one that people naturally have made into the size of an IMAX screen.

"I appreciate the apology; it makes me feel great", he said sarcastically moments later.

NCAA Tournament tickets are sold for two-game sessions instead of individual games, which equates to the arena being divided among four fan bases even while watching only two teams at a time. Down 36-21 at halftime, the Wildcats made a game out it.

Good thing they didn't, because the Cats clawed their way back and revealed their character. "We were really creative on switches", Nigel Williams-Goss said.

The Zags did an excellent job locking down Northwestern's Bryant McIntosh who finished with an offensive rating of 91 and 5 turnovers (averages 2.7).

Northwestern cut the deficit to 44-32 early in the second half on Law's corner 3. But Northwestern wasn't done making noise.

"We're going to build off of (this season)", he said.

Behind a suddenly ferocious defense that hampered fifth-seeded Virginia on seemingly every possession, fourth-seeded Florida advanced to the Sweet 16 with the victory at Amway Center in Orlando. Then the technical happened. However, his efficiency did take a hit in the second half when he shot 1-9 from the field and failed to pick up another assist.

Jevon Carter led the Mountaineers with 24 points, matching a season high.

Despite the long odds, Northwestern is used to going into tough battles and coming out on the correct side of the ledger. "This is just a beginning and I can't wait to see what the future holds".
