Ok, we've all been prognosticating in various forms in other threads about the outcome of the game. Lets put it all together in this thread and come up with a prediction for this game.

Mine is simply this. Gonzaga will control the tempo in this game and force Indiana to play at tempo they do not like. It will be close for 3/4 of the game, but Gonzaga will pull away towards the end. Final score 80-65.

Your turn.

I'll be at happy hour before the game, so hopefully that will help with my nerves during...I predict a close, hand wringing first half with DR sealing the win with free throws.

GU 82
Indiana 77

Ohhh, I feel weak, I feel a rough game ahead...

IU - 78
GU - 75

But Weber St. knocks down a clutch set of last second FTs and knocks out UCLA, then takes the momentum to squeak one out over IU...

GU 75, IU 68.

Also, the only common opponent between the two schools is Butler. Butler wins both.

Butler 65, Indiana 60.
Butler 79, Gonzaga 71

Both Indiana and GU also lost to Duke.

Nov. 28, Duke 54 Indiana 51
Dec. 21, Duke 61 Gonzaga 54

Not sure what that tells us, but they both lost to the same teams.

sorry for the hijack--just to make it legit, GU 75 IU 70

Trouble is, the final score doesn't reflect how badly Butler beat us.

My prediction (keeping it consistent, can't upset the voodoo):

62-58 Indiana

It will be a back and forth affair that isn't decided until the last minute.

If either team scores more than 70 points, I'll be very surprised. (due to IU's slow tempo)

That isn't a prediction.

IU, displaying the lethargy and poor shooting that has dogged them in away games all year (like 4&9) trails early, but ZAGS fail to take advantage, commit turnovers and fouls in the block, lead only by 6 at the half. IU corrects shooting ills, hits 9 of 14 treys in the second half, leads by 5 with 5 min left. Down by 3 with 1:20 left, Zags miss a three by Downs, a three by Raivio after long rebound, and a putback by Bouldin before Kuso commits 5th foul over the back and Hoosier freethrows put the game out of reach. Final: IU 69, GU 64. Regardless of how plucky the players may be, it's not realistic to have a team reinvent itself 3/4 of the way through the season and play w/the kind of cohesiveness required to make a sustained run in the tournament.

My predictions are usually so far off that I'm lucky to even have the right teams !!
Therefore:
Zags hot and running early, controlling tempo, nailing shots, up by 15 at the half. Indiana comes out determined and closes the gap powered by the open threes and takes the lead with three minutes to go. Zags can't close and the season ends.
GU - 72
Indiana - 78

I see a low scoring game and a 63 - 60 Zag victory, brought about by improved Zag free throw shooting.
