SALT LAKE CITY — Already stomping mad after several borderline calls went against his team, Chris Collins simply couldn’t stomach another one.
The Northwestern coach ran onto the floor wildly gesturing for goaltending after Gonzaga center Zach Collins illegally put his right hand through the cylinder of the rim while rejecting a Dererk Pardon dunk attempt.
The technical foul Collins received proved to be the biggest sequence of top-seeded Gonzaga’s 79-73 second-round victory over ninth-seeded Northwestern on Saturday in Salt Lake City.
Had Pardon’s dunk counted, it would have sliced the Zags’ 19-point second-half lead to three with five minutes to go. Gonzaga’s Nigel Williams-Goss instead sank two free throws to push the lead to seven and the Wildcats never again got as close as five until less than 20 seconds remained.
