Fans can watch the Duke vs. Gonzaga basketball game live online and see which team will be the last to punch its ticket to the Final Four.
The two college basketball powerhouses will meet in the Elite Eight, with Gonzaga trying to avoid yet another disappointing high-seed exit and Duke trying to make yet another Final Four.
Start time for the Elite Eight matchup is 5:05 p.m. from Houston, Texas.
For Gonzaga coach Mark Few, the game is a chance to defeat a team that has been the benchmark of success in the NCAA Tournament.
“Probably the highest compliment I could pay him is literally everything we’ve tried to do at Gonzaga, we always ask, ‘What did Duke do here?'” Few said.
Few said his team isn’t content to just enjoy the ride this time.
“This moment is big for this team. They’re hungry to get to a Final Four and to keep playing,” said Few.
The winner of the Elite Eight matchup will face the winner of Louisville and Michigan State, with a powerhouse looming in the final. Kentucky just held off its biggest threat of the year, defeating Notre Dame thanks to a pair of late free throws.
The Wildcats will meet Wisconsin, the team that most analysts believe has the best chance of stopping the Wildcats.
Whichever team wins, it will present an imposing matchup for the winner of Duke vs. Gonzaga.
Fans who watch the Duke vs. Gonzaga game live online will see if the Bulldogs can continue their record-breaking year. Gonzaga had a school-record 35 wins, with the only losses this year coming to Arizona and BYU.
“Gonzaga’s not just a great team, but a great program. Mark’s built a great, great program there,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said, who said Gonzaga’s excellent season has been lost a bit in the hype over Kentucky’s unbeaten season.
“They would be tough to beat because of their talent, but they’re tougher to beat because they’ve won so much together,” he said. “We’ve had a sensational year, but we’re still an evolving team, we’re still trying to get better because of all the young guys.”
