Sabonis Jr scored 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds on Tuesday with his performance following another outstanding performance in the semi-finals on Monday when he scored 18 points and had 14 rebounds and three assists.
Sports Illustrated said of Sabonis’ performance: “It’s been a frustrating season for the Zags, but Sabonis has been a bright spot. He plays with uncommon maturity for a 20-year-old, can score with either hand inside, has tremendous body control for someone 6’11” and 240 pounds and is one of the best rebounders in the country. NCAA tournament games are typically won with stellar guard play, but Sabonis will pose problems for pretty much everyone.”
It is the eighth time in a row that Gonzaga University have qualified for US College Basketball’s key tournament.
