Not hitting their shots and not much defense either. They were ahead till Vandy went on a 30 to 8 run to end the half.
Kansas State down three to Texas A.M. (almost half time)and Illinois came close but lost to Ohio State.

Just reading from the Gaels' site, they are having trouble getting MM open looks, Jones took a T, - - 0 FT's for the Gaels in the first half.

Bad news

Not surprised by smc/vandy in the least. Vandy is a pretty solid team, better than smc.

Jeff taylor sure would be a happy sight in a gu unii - as I remember, GU was in the final cut for him, right?

Yeah, too bad we missed out on him. He is definitely a player.

Thanks for posting the link, NEC.

If the Gaels can't overcome the current 15 point deficit, it should remove their patina of invincibility.

If they pull out a road "W" their confidence will be sky high when they roll into K2 next week.

No problem found it on the Saint Mary's board. The feed can be pretty annoying when they cut from the play to look at the crowd though. Definitely can tell it has a Vandy flavor to it.

The thing that has killed the Gaels is their three point defense its been atrocious. Getting a little of their own medicine. Maybe Monninghoff can get going against them(provided he plays some D himself) or Gray of course.

they probably should bench all their starters and let someone else with "energy" play

or maybe it is coaching problem

or maybe it is lack of team leadership

or maybe

These announcers aren't as bad as some I won't name but man are they homers. Give absolutely no credit to SMC whatsoever. If they do make a shot its a playground move and I don't know how many times I've heard them complain about uncalled moving screens or fouls or what have you.

Saint Mary's exposed. Few needs to watch this and come up with a good game plan. I feel confident we can take this game at home. Have to bring it though.

SMC finally comes down to Earth on this one. Looking forward to our games with them. May the best team win. I hope the WCC refs let both teams keep their best players on the court.

Be physical with Steindl, it takes him completely out of his game.

26% from 3 not quite their average----maybe they were looking ahead to the whooping they are going to get in Spokane.

Mickey opted to allow the rest of the team to score rather than score himself.

I hope they are still ranked when they visit us--we can use another win over a ranked team.

take advantage of the fact they play their starters nearly the entire game no matter what the score and run them ragged. Using our depth to provide blows and keep it up.

press them and run them on defense and then go inside out on Offense. Take them out of their game and refuse to let them get settled into theirs. Forty minutes of relentless effort.

Crushed on the glass and at the line - we should be able to learn something from that. Now lets take care of our own business tonight

They got exposed against SDSU, to beat them:

1) Be overly physical with their guards, press them, and be on them at all times.
2) Make their bigs beat you.


Stanford of the SEC must have gotten their hands on that tape, it happened again today.

Yeah, but playing physical gets Zags in trouble with WCC refs.

Does that mean Zags were exposed on Thursday? Probably more like an off game by SMC and an off game by the Zags against SCU (I hope).

RECAP (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/recap?gameId=310220238)


Saint Mary's (17-3) hadn't lost since Dec. 1 to San Diego State, and this loss is a tough end to a week when the Gaels moved into the rankings for the first time since Jan. 26, 2006.

This game was the second part of a home-and-home, and coach Randy Bennett said the scheduling was a payback to Vandy visiting last season. Bennett said he would have preferred to play this game earlier to give his Gaels more time to learn some painful lessons. They won't have as much time with a visit to Gonzaga next on Thursday.

"What we can learn from it is we learn to be more mentally tough on the road," Bennett said.
