Mark Few 100
Randy Bennett 98

I do believe that Mark Few is the coach of the Year for what he, his staff and the Zags have accomplished this year. This has been the toughest year I remember in quite awhile. The challenges have been huge. Randy Bennett has also done an outstanding job this year with the GAELS, and they have a real good team. I'm looking forward to a classic battle between two great teams.

Tony left his heart in San Francisco.

Randy coaches the Gaels.

Either way Zags win by 5 .

Zags by 3 - while I'd like to see us put it to 'em, this shapes up to be another nailbiter. We play like last night - we lose. Refs will (unfortunately) play a hige role in this one. Where do we find these bozos?

I would just like to see KO with his arms in the air. My life would be complete.

Oh, and just once, I'd like to see RS and KO knock the ball, or the St. Mary's player and the ball, into the second deck instead of flopping on a drive to the basket.

Thank you. Have a nice day.

I think that Gonzaga this season is ultimately the better "2nd half" team, but shooting only 30% isn't going to do it this time around. I think we're peaking at just the right time, and GU should win 3-9 points this time around.

That last game was a "win ugly" ugly win. Can't believe we'll see the Zags "playing ugly" two games in a row. If the refs let the boys play, this should be another good'n.

How good?

Zags 83
Gaels 76

I think coach of the year could be either one depending on what you base the voting on.

I think Coach Few did a fine job as always and did a very good job of keeping this team focused and finishing strong.

On a negative note this team did not live up to preseason predictions which could count against Few. Even though I don't think it was anything coach did or didn't do.

Don't you think our bad start had a lot to do with Harris's injury? I do. And I also believe it had a lot to do with the number of new guys who would be playing this year. Few warned us at the beginning of the year that it was going to take some time with this group.

Although the Zags lost a lot of games to some pretty darn good teams, and on the road, I believe those losses toughened up the Zags. They were learning from those losses. Most fans here on GU board were pretty frustrated with the team initially and had a hard time understanding what Few was doing. But Few knew! He never stopped believing in Meech, Stockton, Dower and Carter, and as we now know, a huge part of the success of the Zags comes from the confidence and faith that Mark has for his players. And I believe that his trust in them paid off immensely. So I think that the Zags rise to success has everything to do with Mark Few and his staff.

Smc by 7. With 0 flow to these games thanks to quality officiating I think the better offensive team makes enough plays to pull ahead. Smc is lights out at the line and from what we have seen sofar this tourny, they will get to shoot plenty of freebies.

I give Few a ton credit for keeping this team together thru some rough times. However there is a post on this board welcoming San Fran to the club of elite teams in the WCC. Is this based on the fact GU gets a scare from them or that they are a good team. I think we have a very good chance to get an at large bid but as boxers say "Don't leave it in the hands of the judges". We are struggling against teams we traditionally dominate, it can be argued these teams are better but based on our performances out of conference it could also be argued we are playing down to their level more so than them up to ours. We have finished strong which is what we want but our strong finish has all been against WCC opponents, our last loss was to a bubble team in Memphis.

Officials will hand SMC the game. All Zags will foul out before the half, forcing us to lose by disqualification.

Carter and Stockton win the game with FT's in the second half.

Steven Gray has a good game tonight. One thing about Steve is that he doesn't have two bad games in a row. :) We're going to see him smiling a few times tonight.

It has been since the Portland game on 2/3 that Gray has shot .500 from the field. I think he finds his way out of this slump this game, channels his inner freshman Steven from the Davidson game and lights it up to the tune of 26 pts, 18 from behind the arc.
