Gonzaga survives West Virginia to reach Elite Eight

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN JOSE, Calif. -- West Virginia did not make it easy. Its full-court, full-time pressure makes for a busy, difficult match.

But Gonzaga guard Jordan Mathews worked through it, and his go-ahead 3-pointer with 57.3 seconds remaining helped the top-seeded Bulldogs to a 61-58 victory over the Mountaineers in the NCAA Tournament West Region semifinals at the SAP Center on Thursday.

"We had never come across that throughout the season," Mathews said. "It wasn't frustration. It was more like, I don't know, confusion, trying to figure it out. But just staying the course and rallying around our guys and just thinking about the defensive end helped my offense in the end."
