The Gonzaga Bulldogs were an absolute juggernaut, and their loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Elite Eight can be chalked up to the Red Raiders being that side of the bracket’s “team of destiny.”

The Zags were a complete behemoth all season, and they finished as the number one overall offense in the country coupled with the 12th- best defense per KenPom.

Gonzaga was buoyed by a balanced scoring attack as well as the ferocious defense from potential Atlanta Hawks draftee Brandon Clarke. However, Clarke is not much of a shooter, which means our attention turns to sweet-shooting swingman Zach Norvell Jr.

In his two seasons with Gonzaga, Norvell produced a rock-solid 37.1 percent shooting clip from long range coupled with a 60.8 percent three-point attempt rate. Norvell knew where his bread was buttered, and he didn’t force his way into activities that were not particularly his forte.

Norvell was comfortable taking shots off the dribble and off the catch, though his numbers on NBA-level threes was slightly less than his overall rate (per The Stepien): 33.7 percent on 184 attempts.

Still though, looking at his shot chart makes it clear that many of his makes were just inside of the NBA three-point line, so it’s reasonable to imagine that he’ll be able to make those shots at the next level.
