BUFFALO, N.Y. -- In his four seasons at Gonzaga, Matt Bouldin is familiar with what it takes to come through in the clutch.It was Bouldin's composure -- and the 14 points he scored in the second half -- that allowed the eighth-seeded Bulldogs to avoid squandering an 18-point lead and hang on for a 67-60 victory over Florida State on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
• Gonzaga advanced to its ninth second-round game in 12 NCAA tournament appearances.
• The Bulldogs are 20-3 this season when forward Elias Harris (13 points) scores in double figures.
• The Zags are 2-2 against the ACC in tournament play.
• Gonzaga had never faced the Seminoles.
