I was wondering--with McConnell averaging huge minutes per game 36.6 over the year--but 40 per game for the last 7/8 games--will he run out of gas?

His legs start to get a little fatigued --3's are falling a bit shorter.

Then again his is a lot younger than I am.....maybe won't make a difference.

I am rooting for USU because:

1. SMC hasn't lost at home this year. Nothing like a little chink in the armor , etc.

2. Back-to-back losses by the Gaels might shake their confidence a bit, give them reasons to doubt their game at a key juncture in the season.

3. The Head Coach (Stew Morrill) of USU has Gonzaga connections

4. The enemy of my enemy is my friend ( for one night at least )

5. Zags wouldn't take much from the SMC - USD game tape. This game, OTOH, will give the coaches a better blueprint for taking down the Gaels at their house.

I am cheering against SMC out of habit, but really, we need them to win if we want a shot at an at large, on the other hand, the way they are playing in the second half - they sure look like a team that is running out of gas at the end of the year. They took a lead into the half at USD and they took a lead into half against USU and they are dying a slow death in the outback right now.

Maybe I am reading too much into this but it sure looks like SMC is a worn out team; it used to be that McConnel could enforce his will at pretty much any point but he can't even get his shot.

9 point lead at half today; 8 point lead at half at SD.

What did Dykes say ?

He said they were overrated and would not be able to stand up to bigger physical teams. Personally, I thought they were playing great team ball earlier in the year, but I thought talk that they were better than last year's team was stupid. Like him or not, Spamham was a HUGE part of the run they made last year and they have nobody to take his spot physically or emotionally. They did beat the Zags though, but Zags wer playing pretty soft then. SMC has four days to fill up their tank, sweep up the floor, put some new 100 watt bulbs in the garage, and to get ready for a newly tuned up Zag machine that is driving toward another WCC championship. Go Zags, Beat SMC. :)

It would really be nice if Carter could go for 20 again, seems we do pretty well when he does. We are an entirely different team if we have a three point threat to keep people honest.

Maybe we need to play way up tempo against them on Thursday, USU just kept coming at them in the second half and SMC did not have the man-power to keep up with them, not moving their feet, fouling instead of guarding, shots were off. We have been playing 10-11 and winning, why not have them running circles around them all game?

Of course, opening the second half with 3 straight 3 pointers and then follow it with 3s from Manny and Steven would be nice again. I don't believe that we have seen this team explode like that all year. As was said in the game thread. . . I wonder what was said in the locker room over half-time. I sure as hell hope it had something to do with controlling your own destiny and having to want it more. It really looked to me like SMC wished the season ended a week ago, you could see their confidence fading as soon as USU took the lead.

but pretty sure they are related. btw, coach tinkle's daughter is a starter (or 6th player) for stanford gals team that stopped the UConn streak. excellent player.

saw coach tinkle (a spokane native & ferris grad) in the k2 when stanford played the Zag gals this season. Nice fellow. I was introduced to him at Jack and Dan's, where he was having a jar with a mutual friend.

I say we pick up MM full court man to man. Make him work for everything he gets on offense and wear him down on defense. We have the horses to do. Deny him the ball. Make someone else try to beat. I don't think they can do it. Pound it inside and then kick out to open shooters. Just what we have been doing lately.

Gonzaga has evened the score with two of the three teams that beat us in conference play. St. Mary's is the only one left. I'm really looking forward to Thursday nite.

The 30 footers that MM made in the late second half were when the game was all but decided, he was AWOL during USU's run from 9 back to 10 up, at one point SMC was 3/17 shooting from the field.

Love the idea of picking him up in the backcourt and wearing him out. Try to make someone else beat us. I think they are worn out BUT that does not mean that they will wear out against us with all that is on the line. It is just worth noting and possibly take advantage of.

Reading some posts in the Gaels forum on how USD and Utah beat Micky..

Both teams played the same strategy...doubled him off the screen as much as possible and it sounds like they don't trust their bigs to get it done.

i.e.,

"They doubled Mickey off the screen.. RB has no answer for it.. Maybe a double screen will work.. Try something anything "

"what were they doing? San Diego double teamed Mickey a lot on the screen and left the 5 and the 1 with him. Mickey did well splitting it in the first half of the SD game, but they tightened up in the second half. "

"dont understand why we let our bigs post up....who do they think they are omar samhan?? our bigs dont have the skill to post up as most of those possession turn out to be a missed shot or turnover (with exception of rob jones but he is sometimes to small to post). If we want our bigs to score, let mickey and delly run plays for them....dont let the bigs run the plays!!!

Every time we take care of the basketball and don't turn the ball over and guard the 3 point line consistently, we do great! If our guards don't suck in and try to help on defense in the middle, we should be able to beat St. Mary's. Let Rob and Elias take care of the middle, they are big boys and can handle it fine. If we stop St. Mary's strength, their guards and 3 point shooting, we will stop their strength, as they don't have as :pray:much of an inside presence as we do. If we work it in on offense to our bigs and stop depending on 3's, we will win. Gonzaga does not want to get into a battle of 3 point shooting, we will lose that fight. We only made 8 out of 25 shots(32%), taking far too many homers. Stick to our strengths, the inside game, and we can call ourselves co-champs for 2010-2011, 11 in a row!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree about feeding the bigs down low and that the ball should run through their hands at least once a possession, with the caveat that teams have lately been double or triple teaming our bigs - and when they do we must have guys getting to their spots or cutting through the middle. If a team has decided to make someone other than Sacre or Harris beat them, we have to find a way to get it done. I like Steven's drives down the lane, and I also like Carter's floaters. If we can knock down an open three after running it through the offense, fine with me.

Go Zags, beat SMC - they will be angry, be more angry.

press SMC more. Make them work and waste time getting to half court. They already look tired.

We let them set up, get in to their rhythm and if they get hot, we keep letting them get to the spot where they can do it again.

Another pet peeve is watching Mickey set up atop the key and basically plan to make a drive. He should be trying to catch his breath from making it to that spot.

Thirdly, there is just no way he can get a shot off as often & easily as he has against us unless we stop dogging him for 40 minutes, or get careless and sag into the middle.

All of this is predictable. He's an excellent shooter and opportunist. Don't give him the opportunity.

I am desperate to see Keita, Meech, Manny, and Steven reek havoc on their backcourt. We need to press these guys. Gas them by halftime and strike in the second half. I was shocked Few didn't do this more the first time around. We sat back and allowed them a comfort zone. We have superior athletes to throw at their guards all night. We are deep, they are not.

That's most my answer right there as well. Unfortunately two of those four have been trimmed from the line up but if we press them even if its just Meech running a full court press on his man the ENTIRE game it will mess their flow and they are already a tired team. We play fast and hard and take care of the ball and we're good to go.

We lost by a last second near circus shot last time so i dont put too much emphasis on their "win" against us. Im actually more concerned about our inside guys being able to cut off their drives without drawing a foul. Right now KO, Harris and Dower dont have a good track record for that.

That's most my answer right there as well. Unfortunately two of those four have been trimmed from the line up but if we press them even if its just Meech running a full court press on his man the ENTIRE game it will mess their flow and they are already a tired team. We play fast and hard and take care of the ball and we're good to go.

We lost by a last second near circus shot last time so i dont put too much emphasis on their "win" against us. Im actually more concerned about our inside guys being able to cut off their drives without drawing a foul. Right now KO, Harris and Dower dont have a good track record for that.

Go Zags


Didn't mean to steal your thunder, hooter. Sorry about that. Manny and Keita have been trimmed, true, but they would make a great impact defensively. I can't imagine Delly or Mickey Mouse getting great looks with Keita in their hip pocket starting from 40 feet out. I don't want to see us become compact on defense on dribble drives. Guys need to trust the D will be there. Easier said than done, obviously.

Typically, a "Mickey Mouse" defense is synonymous with a
poor defense. This isn't the case when you play SMC.

Defend MM!

Doesn't steal my thunder, just means we're right! :)

I really wish we had even a short youtube of Samhan getting stuffed to the floor by Foster, knocked sideways by Sacre and dunked on by Josh.

Out of curiosity, do you also think it's "unfortunate" that Gonzaga has won it's last 6 conference games? The guys who haven't been playing may very well have a positive influence on the outcome of future games, but second guessing a winning combination seems a little strange to me.

I see you're in the 'dont question a win' camp which is fine and you have a good practical point buuuuuuuuuuuuuut its just hard to see players that exhibited so much promise early on see no playing time whatsoever.

On the other hand, a guy who had 0 minutes for many games earlier was just named conference Player of the Week. I think we ought to just hope that the guys in the dark uni's win Thursday.

Go Zags, beat SMC - - and then do it again a week and a half later.

In addition to all the other strategies we use, or leave out, we must,
in all cases
do what we didn't do last game with them

RUN THEM

we have the speed, the wind, the bench, to not
play their speed
Let Carter, Steve, and David run it constantly when they are in
Like Meech does

Somebody needs to give ol' Manboobs a shout out for me on facebook:

"Come on down for the game tonight, tubby. After we pants Micky and slap the mouthpiece out of Dellavamouthpiece's stupid face, we're gonna need a big, fat tub of ... to dump these guys on."

Edit: I've got a feeling that I might be crossing a line on this one. But let me say that for me it's all in good fun. Honestly, I haven't laughed this hard in a while.

Go Zags! Let's take it to these guys all night long!!!

Ohmar? What is that big dummy up to these days? Oh, wait, I just remembered that I couldn't possibly care less.

All most game time!
BTW - I hate watching Delavadopey shoot free throws. Looks like a gradeschool kid trying a chest pass for the first time. Which makes it even worse when it goes in.:doh:
