I sense a wipeout that will start sluggishly and pick up steam in second half.

Go Zags!

nope, steaming right from the start - i really don't think this team will have any ill effects from the zona loss. that wasn't what i'd call a "bad" loss. sure we have more talent and should have beaten them, but it was basically a home game for the wildcats and we had to loose SOMETIME, i think it got the monkey off our back. we take this one by 25+ and that's only because out 7-11 guys get some p.t. down the stretch

I was thinking Finals Week might've wore on the guys mentally. It has happened before. I know the loss to UA will fire the guys up, especially for UConn. I hope!

with finals week nearing its end, the snow which I have heard mythic legends of and the roads being how they are with Spokane public works, how do yall project the crowd will be tonight?

That's why we have this game scheduled for this week. A little Finals Rust, and over the hills to Seattle we go.

This thread is plugged in ... allow twenty minutes to warm up before cranking it ...

Pre-game is on ... K2 does indeed sound dead (could have been pre-recorded ... but normally is not).

Does anyone know of any streaming video for the game? Gametracker is OK, but I don't understand how those little players score without any arms. :D

Matt B has had two very nice assists. . .

It is hard to image how TCU was only 1 point down from Texas at their first half. It really shows how off and on some teams can be on any given night.

Austin, that was a clean block, but hey...You raised your hand up and I love it.

Few needs to talk to the refs in general about the calls on Austin's blocks. Those are called way too many times when there is no contact except between Austin's hand and the ball. It's ridiculous.

Akzag

53-19 at the half. Give me a moment ... I'll find something to gripe about ....

Hudson/Fox figured too much body contact and thought it was a good call.

No slugs in that half, Bob.

Zags can beat anybody if they shoot like this in March.

I really do mean anybody.

Wonder if Big Will will get some PT tonight ?

I don't know...I think it is good for Austin to have an occasional bad call against him. Look how much he has changed from complaining to raising the hand. I am starting to love Austin.

Austin is more impressive each outing.

They have fire power. Right now (AZ game) they seem to get flustered with tough defense. At the end of the season, I think they will have great confidence and they will start dropping on a regular basis.

Akzag

Stats have Pargo, Bouldin, and Gray with 6,5, and 3 assists respectively.

Agreed.

Looking hard for a stream here at work... but nothin'... although looking at the score, all I am missing is a major beatdown.

Not sure if I am happy with 1 in 3 shots being treys but my oh my are they falling tonight.

I am not happy with Josh weak hand up and a shot falling through.

Josh's defense has been weak. He has no fouls.

Considering how deep the post is at the moment, I think this is just going to be a live-or-die-by the 3 type of team. They are certainly falling tonight. Hopefully the will against UConn as well...

Nice look and give by Downs to Daye underneath.

johnwzag

Well, they are breaking up the defense. It is just easy 3s. the kind you cannot pass up. I really would like to see them drive every basket for practice, but it is good offense.

Nice backdoor to Josh from Pargo

Will seems to get frustrated when he works to get open down low and then doesn't get the ball. It looks like he backs off if he isn't looked at after a while.

Nice couple of series by Will. Offensive rebound and two blocks.

Rangerzag

Fox says too much contact interfering with Will. He should have had four shots at the foul line.

He has lost the smile though. I want to see him happy.

Not all shots are threes.

Zags either dunk in transition or shoot from distance. Not much deifferent than what you have seen all year.

Nice easy game with the 3 falling and everything going right. Will got some time in and we will need him during Uconn game. Expect to see a tough fight against Uconn. Win or loose, hope we have a good game.

Enough to keep Heister talking about it ... I swear, even the Ehlo flashbacks to his NBA days don't take up this much air time.

[I do think it is a valid argument, let's just not overkill it, huh ?]
