with four suspended players (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/02/12/SPB815SV77.DTL) that probably won't be reinstated in time for tonight's game ... USF is dressing 8, one of which is nursing an injury. Manny and Hyman would have normally seen minutes against the Zags.

Lowhorn, himself, is quoted as saying the energy was better (Thurs. vs. Port.) with just those 7 players. Coach Rex is sending a message.

The Dons did well on the boards too, vs. the Pilots (17 offensive). IMO Micah and Ira! 's energy boosts will be important tonight to help wear down the undermanned Hilltoppers.

Go Zags.

I expect an even-keel game with little emotion, just kinda business-like, maybe a bit flat.

Milestones -

Josh enters the game with 998 career points. Jeremy entered the 1000-pt. club early this year, and Matt joined in Thursday's game.

Few is tied at second with Dick Davey for most WCC victories (122). He still has eh, say four to five years until he nears Carroll Williams' 165.

discussed smc game.

that was the one they needed to win. I thot our guys did a great job. almost gave it away with missed f.t.'s but we got it in their gym."

re MD: " He's been aggressive, rebounding creating havoc, offensively aggressive and he's been playing really well. good energy. hoping he does the same thing tonight."

re: S.F. team. they are depleted. they got rid of the bad attitudes. expect high energy. lowhorn is incredible and people around him are playing hard and loose and they gave portland a whale of a game. I expect alot of threes."

Lloyd: "i expect great effort. S.F. has issues with seniors and didn't think they were into the team thing. got rid of them and it's become a rallying point for them. expect them to jump in and see if they can do someting. we plan to attack them inside out."

re lowhorn: "for sure he's a high level scorer, a difficult matchup. we're probably going to try to go at him and get him in foul trouble."

"their guards have played alot of minutes, but what they've done is become more dependant on lowhorn. we want to limit his touches and if he gets the ball he's going to be guarde by five guys."

Best player should start regarding Downs and Gray. At the start of the year it was Downs, then shifted big time towards Gray, and now back to Downs. Would be great to see them both on top of their games...

zagfan24
02-14-2009, 07:15 PM
We could become a much better team if we:

1) Boxed out...instead of running toward the basket. I swear the Zags get absolutely killed by long rebounds way too often.

2) Stop collapsing so quickly on the post. We have decent post defenders. Josh has really improved, Austin is a good weak side shot blocker, Will is tall and Ira is strong. I think the main reason we allow good 3-point shooting so often is that we over-help down low.

Also,

3) I love hearing Dickey Simpkins being introduced as a 3-time NBA champion. I'll bet that makes Karl Malone implode.

Anybody got the scoop on Pargo? What's going on? Stress from senior year and potential NBA draft? He has digressed but I feel like it is just some kind of funk. It is hard to hold anything against the Zags, this is a low energy game. Easy for us to say they should be killing them but there is no venom is this game compared to some WCC away matchups. I think the Santa Clara one will be plenty packed as they are pretty hot right now.

Really like the consistency we are seeing from Josh on both offense and defense. He's not going for 30 and 15 each night but just putting in nice games each time out. Can't even remember his last no-show or just bad game, which is what you would expect from a senior down the stretch.

For how close the game was on Friday, OB and Lavin lacked the interest in the game that I relaxed with two minutes left and then looked at the score and thought, "Uh this game is a lot closer than these guys seem to be announcing as". It would have been just typical of coverage if they interviewed Patty Mills during the last two minutes.

I was hoping for Psyioch {sic} tonight. Anybody else? I always liked him.

Talking about sending a message, I wish Few would do like a "good parent" would do to teach a lesson and help his "child" improve his behavior: The next time Daye rolls his eyes after a foul and looks all whiny, sit him on the bench. Instead, I saw Few roll his own eyes and keep Daye in there. How does that help Daye improve so he better keeps his head straight?

Well.from looking at this offensive output, sounds like the only way USF is even in this game is because we're not playing defense. Worse! We're getting the boards!! SO where's the D? Few needs to correct this right now or sit the offenders.

Zags are relaxing. That's the problem.

Not Micah or Meech.

Josh yah, Austin Yah, Jeremy?, Steven?

Micah is the only player on the floor without a turnover.

Josh and Austin 3, Jeremy 2

That may be what the box score says...but i do recall Micah making a horrible entry pass to heytvelt that went out of bounds...guess that was charged to the big guy

And UP was up 2 at the half. Just getting dominated in the 2nd. If Patty Mills didn't go down in the first half though, SMC would have won by 40.

If the scoring margin is less than 10 at the 10 minute mark, I might start a new diet of fingernails and hard liquor.

The Dons are raining 3 balls. I bet they are at their season high already.

10 point margin? I guess if GU is even leading at that point.

Right but how many times have you seen Matty fire a back door pass and 3 other guys are right there and it bounces off their foot and goes out of bounds?

I might just forego a glass/cup/drinking device, just swig straight from the bottle. I was just hoping to relax but this seems to be a return of the 2005-2006 'Cardiac' Zags.

It takes Few until the 13 minute mark to sub his best player from the first half into the game. And he hasn't put in Foster at all. Frustrating.
