View Full Version : Ken Bone: Cougs ran out of gas against Zags

I heard some of the Coug basketball radio show tonight. Ken Bone was reviewing the Zag game. He said that he had a decision to make. Stay with the group of players who got them ahead or start playing some additional players. He decided to stay with the group that got them ahead, but they ran out of gas. With the Zags using 10 players, and him going with a 7-8 man rotation they didn't have the energy the Zags did. That was what impressed me most with the win. We used the bench more than in any previous game, and Bone acknowledged that was a key factor in the win.

Later he was asked about the environment / fan support at the Kansas game they just played. He immediately compared it to the Zags. He said Gonzaga consistently had great teams, and of course it starts with great coaches and coaching. But the fans and their support really gives the Zags an edge.

In the short time I listened, he was really giving the Zags some props.

Bone's proven himself as a good coach. Great hire for the Cougs.

Ken Bone: Cougs ran out of gas against Zags

I'm guessing that doing so was part of Few's plan for all of the games we won in the last 10 minutes of play.
