Offense vs. Defense Stats

For a look at the numbers when both the Huskies or Bulldogs palm the ball, plus more betting insights and key player notes, head to our March Madness stats post for this game.

Will Drew Timme’s Magic Continue?

The First Team All-American lived up to that billing on Thursday night, manufacturing 36 points on 16-of-24 shooting to help Gonzaga knock off No. 2 seed UCLA. Nevertheless, Bruins center Adem Bona, one of the better defensive bigs in the country, missed the game after reinjuring his shoulder in the second round. Hence, Timme was positioned with a prime opportunity to help the ‘Zags advance past the Sweet 16 after falling short last season.

This time, he’ll face a more arduous task via the Huskies’ frontcourt. UConn is allowing a 36.0% clip on post-up looks — good for a top-55 rating across D-I. It’s led by Adama Sanogo and 7-foot freshman Donovan Clingan, who has posted a preposterous 14.3% block rate in limited minutes behind Sanogo.

Unless Gonzaga pins both Sanogo and Clingan to the bench with foul trouble, Timme may struggle in what could very well represent his final collegiate game.

On the flip side, the Bulldogs’ pick-and-roll defense and rim protection, respectively, is extremely vulnerable. Granted, Mark Few and his coaching staff adjusted well in their second-half comeback against the Bruins, with guards Malachi Smith and Hunter Sallis providing more physical defense. But the Huskies are — simly put — a larger beast.

Mind you, Gonzaga also benefited from finishing plus-24 on the glass in the regional semifinal. That differential won’t come to fruition tonight, and UConn could even wind up domineering that department.
