Michigan State-Gonzaga: This matchup always delivers. Gonzaga was impressive in its loss at the Breslin Center -- especially how physically tough and strong the Zags were inside. Robert Sacre has really improved, and he is now one of the more patient and poised big men in the nation. Multiple times, Sacre established post position with a foot in the lane or with both feet in the paint. The latter has been termed a "double bury" and essentially means that Sacre didn't need to make a post move because he had already done his work. When he received the ball off the block, Sacre waited for cutters to clear and went to work without rushing, and was outstanding. Combine him with the explosive athleticism and energy of Elias Harris, and you have one of the best post tandems in the nation. Gonzaga is top-20 good, just really young past the first five. And the Zags are defending and rebounding at a high level, something that the program has taken heat over in past years.

More praise from the national media. This time Jay Bilas has nothing but compliments for the Sacre/Harris combination.
