SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga students are deciding whether then can skip a few days of school and travel to Salt Lake City to cheer the Bulldogs in the NCAA basketball tournament. Some students told KXLY the March Madness memories would be worth it. Gonzaga was named the No. 1 seed in the West. The Bulldogs will open the tournament on Thursday in Salt Lake City against No. 16 seed Southern. If Gonzaga wins that game, they'll face either Pittsburgh or Wichita State.
