The Dixie State Trailblazers are off to a solid 4-1 start and are top-20 in the country when it comes to defending the three, but they obviously haven't played a team close to the level of Gonzaga. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are on the end of a back to back and have played a lot of basketball over the last week or so, but that's about the only reason they don't blow the doors off here. Gonzaga could win this game by 50-plus if it really wanted to. I'll lay the chalk or pass.
