Now, for those who did not see my post yesterday, Jeff flat out said that GU was a defensive liability. How quickly he changed his mind.

Sweet 16
Gonzaga over North Carolina The 'Zags are actually the superior defensive team and also may have more depth than the Tar Heels. I'm going with the upset here.

Beat Akron!

One run down the court at a time -- let's get it going early vs. Akron and take one match up at a time. No looking forward.

That's more a reflection on how UNC has played D this year and probably the reason they won't win the NC this year.

This was his quote yesterday about a possible matchup with UNC.



My pick: No. 4 Gonzaga The 'Zags have their swagger back after rolling through the WCC and they matchup well against North Carolina if Mark Few's team can win a couple games and get to the Sweet 16. Gonzaga is deep, talented and their weakness is identical to that of UNC defense.

Yeah I said it...Akron is going to be a great practice game for the Zags. Illinois is going to put up a fight.......But when we get to NC, that's the game Im waiting for. I saw Josh against Tyler last time! we have only gotten stronger since then. I know they have too, but I still think that would be a great game!! I think the Zags have worked for this all year!!

Go ZAGS!!!!!

If I were coaching UNC, I would undoubtedly use this article to motivate my team, to show the basketball world exactly how good we can play defense! They are the best team from top to bottom in the country and the last thing we need is for them to find something to motivate them even more!

I am hoping GU plays well enough to make it to the SS as I have picked UNC to get there as well, which is why this type of article can work in UNC's favor and not in ours.

I agree with the author but feel the article is counter-productive in my humble opinion.

Akron's the one!

Noting though.KenPom has this whole thing down to science like I haven't seen in....well........ever! Unless the kids just get schizoid, they should do well. BUT...Ken doesn't play the games nor does he crown champs. I like GU for every reason Goodman does.

We must win each game as it's played. Beat Akron or it's all over for another 7 months.
