he provided the much-needed leadership beginning to end. keita could easily share this but without that leadership, well, not sure we'd have gotten it at the end.

No brainer, for me anyway.
Je suis ici pour vous la victoire. Vive la France! Vive Gonzga!

I don't want to take Steven's performance for granted - I think that he was the difference, we took our leads when he was in and pumping.

I suppose Steven but it was a diverse win. Everyone contributed differently at various times. Not one person won this one...Keita did very very well as did Meech. I'd say Steven is one to point to.

I have to rewatch my recording of that game to see that big smile after one of Steven's threes.

I went with Steven. He had a big game and if I could see a +/- for the game I would guess he had the best one.

I have to go with Gray today, but how much improved and fun to watch is Keita?? I believe he'll have plenty of GUnit games before season's end...

from one corner and then (I think) the very next possession, he canned another from the opposite corner, well, I knew he was having fun again.

Two daggers, it turned out, too. And, as ZN points out, a very big smile.

Without Gray injury Keita might still be sitting on bench.

Second half stalled without him after that fourth foul. A very close second to Keita for energy and gamechangingness. "gamechangingness": Gonna have to think that one through a little more...:)

Gray is back in swing just in time for the WCC and is ready to claim WCC POTY honors.

+1 Exactly what I was going to say almost to the word! We did need Stevens 18 and 5 assists ! Another great team win!

Of course I have to vote for Keita.


His hustle in transition broke the Zags out of an offensive funk.

Gotta go with Gray with a close second to Keita, and since the poll let me vote for both I did so.

If there was a poll for the GUnit of the Game over the last six games I'd give it to the Coach Few and his staff.

Voted Gray; Keita was great as well. Rob had a great last 3 minutes.

Went with Gray. He hit those key 3 pointer back to back to open thing up and keep the lead. Keita a very close second. Keita finishes extremely well around the rim. He can get up.

Steven Gray.

A shout-out to Keita. It was good to see all the votes that he got. He had a great game for sure. But Steve just showed us all how tough he is. I love what Mark Few said about him after the game when he was talking about the toughness of this team, and he made a clear-cut statement that Steven Gray is the toughest of them all. Few said clearly that Steve was playing hurt. And to think there are fans that think the team is better without Gray just baffles me. Huge 3 pt shooting. My favorite 3 by Steven came right after one of Wake Forest's guards drained a 3 pointer that got the crowd going and revved-up. Steven comes down court quickly and drains a 3. Revved-up crowd is silenced.

I went with Keita. My decision was based upon my hearing the broadcast from Wake announcers on the radio. Very close second to Gray.

SG's two threes in the second half late killed the WF chances

Sealed the deal as they say!

Our post play over-matched them all game. Sacre played it cool after picking up a couple fouls. A solid near-double double to keep them honest.
