Ken Bone interview was just on. Pretty impressive. One of the things he said was really interesting. They asked him if he was pleased with high number of points the Cougs were scoring, and he said, paraphrasing, "No, because players begin to start checking their stat lines and doing what they can to pump up their indivual stat lines, which leads to selfish play." He said they expect the point totals to be coming down as they meet up with teams more like Gonzaga, down from 80 a game to 50 or 60.

It touched a nerve with me, because I think we've been hard on players like Meech for their lack of point production. I worry some that he'll be sensitive to that and not focus so much on team play but instead start focusing on his own stat line.

Zombie Nation is playing now. Got to get my TV glasses on!

I could be wrong, but I think the only stat Meech cares about is the number of "W"'s and the number of "L"'s. . .

Hopefully that is the worst half of hoops the Zags play this year, because not a whole lot went right out there and they really have no one to blame but themselves. Yes, some crap calls, but there's no excuse for bad passes, missed rebounds and standing around on the perimeter and watching paint dry in the paint. Where's the urgency? Sorry it ain't a high profile game on ESPN, but you've got to bring it!

Casto came ready to serve his hometown, Steven played tremendous D but his poorest offensive half this season I think; counted 3 TOs from him too, bad forces, and Robert hasn't caught the ball on his sweet spot buried in the paint much, and when he did, he got roofed or doubled, and the team's still working on that it appears

could be worse than it is, you know? thank you Matt

Don't forget these are still young kids. They are still learning, there has been a lot of good things so far. KO is tough. We are going to see some teaching back Mark Few come out in the second half and hopefully they will pull another one out. That has been the story almost every tough game all year.

I am really impressed with the Cougars. I have to say that I like the ball they are playing now vs past years. They don't put you to sleep.

MB, SG RS, Harris young kids?

ZagLawGrad
12-02-2009, 06:05 PM
RS and Harris are kids in terms of D1 experience. Yes. So is KO, and to much degree Meech, Kong, ect.


Cougs younger....

bballbeachbum
12-02-2009, 06:07 PM
Steven needs to get and make more shots, although they are looking to Steven forced to put it on the deck before making a decision I think, so maybe he can pass the ball on the first catch and keep the defense moving? shake free after the ball is swung, or be the receiver on the weakside...Matt looking good on the weakside now

swing the ball from one side to the other and it's a whole different look at things, but we have not done that nearly enough imo, but when we have, we're better imo

have to keep the lid on Thompson
have to win the battle vs. Casto and Kopravica this half

GO ZAGS!!!

RenoZag
12-02-2009, 06:07 PM

1. It took 3/4 of the game, but Few finally found the right combo
2. He stuck with the right guys, regardless of experience

If they pull this out they won't be listed as GUnit of the game, but the coaches deserve some serious props.

Observations:

--The Cougs are Cougin' it

--KO is a thug, and I love it

--Matt is turning in one hell of a game -- shooting, driving and especially passing

--Harris really turned up the dial and it was contagious.

One of the better D efforts I can remember. IMO Klay Thompson is the best player in the Pac10 (please dont tell me Thomas). Steven Gray is leaving it all on the D side of the ball...UNBELIEVABLE D

Mattie showed me a gear I didn't know he had.

Stevie confirmed my fears of his lack of intensity and focus.

But dont we want a team we play in a month to have least amount of losses possible? Assuming we beat them (I know big assumption).

His intensity and focus was holding the leading scorer in the nation to what 16 pts? (and quiet ones at that)

Point well taken. I'd just like to see less than 6 TO's from him going forward.

I agree that he didn't have a great night on the offensive side, but he played quite possibly the best defensive game I have ever seen a Zag play.

In 1994 Geoff Goss held Brevin Knight, the Pac-10 frosh of the year, scoreless in the NIT at Stanford. Zags got their first post season win that night. THAT's the best D I've ever seen a Zag play.

I respect Steve's defensive effort tonight. I just have higher expectations on O from him at this point.

Bird in the hand beats two in the bush. . . PLUS:

Zags beat Wisc; Wisc beats Duke. Gives Zags MORE confidence heading into Cameron Indoor's Northern Annex ( MSG ). . .

Game Story from the A.P. (http://www.gozags.com/sports/m-baskbl/recaps/120209aaa.html)


SPOKANE, Wash. (AP)--Matt Bouldin scored a career-high 28 points and No. 17 Gonzaga rallied for a 74-69 victory over Washington State on Wednesday night.

Elias Harris added 24 points and 12 rebounds for Gonzaga (6-1), which held the Cougars without a field goal for 10 minutes in the late going. The Bulldogs came back from a 13-point second-half deficit to win behind seven 3-pointers by Bouldin.

Klay Thompson scored 15 points to lead Washington State (6-1), but that was 13 points below the season average for the nation's leading scorer. He was just 6 of 21 from the field. DeAngelo Casto had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Cougars.
