Perennial March Madness contenders Gonzaga take on McNeese State this evening in the First Round. The Bulldogs have made the NCAA Tournament every year since 1999. You can count the Cowboys' March Madness appearances on one hand – and a hand with just two fingers and a thumb, at that. They are yet to make it beyond the First Round and will be lucky to do so this year.

You'll find info on how to watch Gonzaga vs McNeese State live streams below.

Gonzaga vs McNeese State TV and streaming info.

Gonzaga vs McNeese State is on TruTV in the US. Tip-off is 7.25pm ET / 11.25pm GMT on March 22.

Under the guidance of coach Mark Few, Gonzaga have consistently reached at least the Sweet 16 in their last nine March Madness appearances. Despite falling short in the WCC Tournament this year, the Bulldogs are poised for another deep run. Their offensive firepower, led by Graham Ike and company, remains potent. Look for them to mount a Final Four challenge.

The Cowboys, under coach Will Wade, have orchestrated an impressive turnaround. From an 11-23 record last season to an outstanding 30-3 this year, McNeese State’s resurgence is tied for the largest in college basketball history. Their star player, senior guard Shahada Wells, is a force at both ends of the court. Wells leads the team in scoring and possesses exceptional defensive instincts.

McNeese State aims to prove that their remarkable season wasn’t a fluke but the odds favor Gonzaga, with a spread of -6.5 points. The over/under is set at 150.
