BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Matt Bouldin scored 14 of his 17 points in
the second half to help eighth-seeded Gonzaga hang on for a 67-60
victory over No. 9 Florida State on Friday night in the first round
of the NCAA tournament's West Regional.
Steven Gray scored 15 points while Robert Sacre had nine
rebounds for the Bulldogs (27-6), who nearly squandered an 18-point
Deividas Dulkys scored 14 points for the Seminoles (22-10),
whose second-half rally ran out of gas. Dulkys banked in a
3-pointer to cut Gonzaga's lead to 59-54 with 2:21 left. Florida
State had a chance to pull closer but Michael Snaer missed two free
throws a minute later.
Bouldin snared the rebound and the Bulldogs closed by making 8
of 10 free throws.
The Bulldogs advanced to Sunday's second round and will face the
winner of the game between top-seeded Syracuse and No. 16 Vermont.
