The Northwestern State Demons continue to struggle from the field and just lost to Gonzaga yesterday by 38 points. The Gonzaga Bulldogs comfortably beat the Demons last night despite shooting the ball poorly from deep and turning the ball over 14 times. Motivation could be a factor after just playing this time last night, but Gonzaga is more than capable of blowing the doors off once again here and can play better than it just did. I have no choice but to eat the chalk with Gonzaga.
