For the Gonzaga Bulldogs, March Madness will continue! On Saturday, the team demolished a Cinderella team, Xavier, by a final of 83-59. The victory crushed the hopes and dreams of the Musketeers fans including comedian/actor Bill Murray. However, it means the first ever Final Four appearance by Gonzaga in school history. Here's a look at how the Zags got their historic win on Saturday evening to become the first team to make it into one of the final four spots.

Gonzaga's top performers

In Saturday's win, the Gonzaga Bulldogs moved out to a 10-point halftime lead and never really looked back.

For the game, the team shot 47.5 percent from the field and an impressive 50 percent from three-point range, connecting on 12 treys. Several of the team's starters also put in top notch performances to lead the way.

Nigel Williams-Goss has been the team's main star this season and he was the leading scorer once again. The junior guard scored a game-high 23 points on 7-for-19 shooting which included hitting four of his seven three-point shots he attempted. He also snatched eight boards and dished out four assists to help lead the way.

Also helping out was forward Jonathan Williams. He had 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting and also collected eight boards, recorded three shot blocks and had two steals. Josh Perkins and Jordan Matthews also scored 11 points each to give the Bulldogs four starters with double-digits.

Xavier stumbles in Elite Eight

For the Musketeers, this will be the end of an exciting road in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

On Saturday, they fell to a Gonzaga team that was running on all cylinders and shooting very well.

As a team, Xavier shot just 22-for-62 from the field or 35.5 percent. They tried 16 three-pointers but managed to connect on just two of those attempts. Adding insult to the injury of poor shooting on the floor was their 13-for-22 mark from the charity stripe, good for 59.1 percent free-throw shooting on the day.

Guard J.P. Macura led all Musketeers players with 18 points on his 7-for-13 shooting performance. After that, only one other player scored in double-digits, as Trevor Bluiett had just 10 points. Bluiett also snagged seven rebounds, which was tied for the most on the team with bench player Kaiser Gates.

What's next for the Bulldogs?

The Gonzaga Bulldogs will play next weekend in the 2017 NCAA Final Four, with a chance to move on to the National Championship Game. Their next opponent will be the winner of the Florida vs. South Carolina game on Sunday evening.
