Found this, this afternoon. Haven't seen it on any other thread today.

Saturday: Gonzaga over St. Mary's, 8 p.m. ET
The Gaels have everything in place heading down the homestretch. They play tough defense and have a terrific point guard in Patty Mills, a versatile forward in Diamon Simpson and a post scorer in Omar Samhan. After winning the first game 89-85 at home in an overtime thriller, St. Mary's has confidence against the Zags, who have dominated the West Coast Conference in years past. The rematch in Spokane should be a treat to watch. Matt Bouldin and Jeremy Pargo will look to shoot the 3 and attack off the dribble. Austin Daye is a skilled wing with a scoring mentality who can catch fire on offense with range beyond the arc. Forward Josh Heytvelt can score in the lane, and guards David Pendergraft and Micah Downs can knock down the open 3. The Zags' size and depth, along with their motivation to avenge the loss from Feb. 4, give them the upper hand.

This item was listed under the heading "upset watch." It's been many years since GU winning a home conference game would be considered an "upset."

Also, Pendergraft's not a guard, Heytvelt's ability to score in the lane has been missing for a while, and Jeremy Pargo won't (we hope) look to shoot the 3.

According to the official team roster Pendo is a guard.

That's funny. According to every game I've seen this year, he's a forward.

Pendo is technically a 3. Since he has come to GU, he has rarely played the 3 spot.

In the last broadcast on ESPN, they had Pendo as a guard in the starting lineup.

your post was really funny I am still laughing

I thought a 3 was a wing, a quick shoothappy forward
I see Austin bring the ball down court more often than David P.

I'll bet Vegas won't put us as an odds underdog for Sat's game
