Forty five minutes to tip. Thought it might be time to start the chat. Does anyone else think that we have a possible advantage playing the day after SMC played a full game and a day after most of our guys played less than a half a game? SMC seems to be a little susceptible to heavy legs.

I think Few has a method to his madness in playing so many guys (besides the obvious reason of keeping players happy). Tonight ought to go a long ways in proving it--wearing opponents down at the end of the season.

I think. And hope.

Few: our two games (v. smc) have come down to the last shot, smc is one of the smartest teams in the country. The have the ball in their hands 90% of the time. They are difficult to guard.

yet there are some adjustments we can make. we gotta fly around and get the ball.

Few re hart: "donny (daniels) calls him the best two minute man in the nation. I agree. He comes in ready to go and he produces immediately (this sounds like THE answer to the MA & Keita diehards). He had two great plays last night. He's been really valuable to us."

Matt Santangelo talking to hudson: "everyone knows what's on the line here. tonight's the night to control your destiny. make the other team sweat out making it to the dance. take it out of the committee's hands. both teams realize this and that's going to make it an interesting basketball game."

usually Im not too concerned about fouls until later on, but its gotten to where players picking up their 1st foul or things happening early in the team foul situation feel catastrophic/euphoric. You just know any second the whistles will start piling up and the team with the best chance to win will be the one that can play its f*&king players

thanks WCC

They let KO get shoved out of bounds and then call him for 2 really questionable calls on the other end.

Baldwinzag
03-07-2011, 06:35 PM
Kelly get pushed out of bounds--no call. Delly takes 3 steps with the ball, then dribbles, picks up ball then dribbles again--no call. Carter gets hit hard in the lane--no call. We touch any st mary's player--called everytime. Not again!!

No one on our team can actually guard Dellavedova. If SMC figures this out the game is over for GU.

the problem is he walks, he double dribbles and he pushes -- but most importantly, he gets away with it. and because he always looks out of control, he gets alot of fouls called on the poor sap trying to count all the violations.

but watch his feet sometime. he damn near walks every possession. plus he has a really effective three step layin

i'm not sure why few or our captain doesn't complain a few times. he's always cheating. why not ? He's seldom called. it's become a valuable part of his game: pi$$ off your defender and then drive around him or shoot while he's pouting and yelling for a call while Della smiles and slobbers in that come hither way he has.

have said at least 3 times that MM got the first points of the game. SG did.

blathering head said MM got a trey to start it. SG got a trey to start it and followed with a short jumper. it was 5-2 before MM got a shot. MM got the third trey shot, long after the ice was broken.

announcer repeated this early, in the middle of the half and again near the end.

annoying.

These are 2 tournament teams, this game is not only close, but this is the highest level of ball the WCC has to offer all year - - it is great that a national audience is getting to see it.

Now, go straight at Jones, keep going down low, they are already in big foul trouble. Plus, SMC does not play well in the second halfs - - they will start to tire before we do.

BIGGEST news of 1st half... no Zag foul trouble. We all know how this can change in a heartbeat, but the Zags did a great job playing under control.

Plus remember that GU has this 5 point half time lead without Steven Gray for most of the 1st half. He should be nice and rested to play solid defense and hit shots in the second half.

Go Zags!

VinnyZag

Nice way to finish the half. If I was asked if we'd be up by 5 at the half before the game, I'd take it. I think we have more horses than the other guys. Gotta key on Jones when he comes back in.

Baldwinzag

"Clutch Carter" carrying us on his back once again...

Honestly, the ball should be in Carter's hands before it ever touches Gray's hand as it stands right now. Gray is in a funk and clearly not himself. We looked significantly better/smoother when he went to the lockerroom(I really, really hate to say that but its true).

Gray just needs to play solid defense and keep defense honest, but get the ball to our bigs i.e. Harris/Dower, and find Carter on the perimeter or count on him to make the right play such as driving on Delly or taking the shot.

he's done it before.

No way it should go in when it hits the crotch of the iron bolted into the backboard like that. Yet he gets a dead ball out of it. He's done it before though. so maybe he knows something.

ZagAddict

We need more Sacre in the 2nd half... he can be a difference maker. Plus we need to keep the pressure on Rob Jones on defense. Take advantage of the 3 fouls on Rob Jones and Tim Williams (and Mitchell Young has 2 fouls). Attack the rim in the 2nd half and good things will happen for the Zags on the offensive side of the court.

Zag4Hire

1. Open up drives and pound it inside. Fouls are money.
2. Keep hedging the screen on Della/MM. GU has been doing a great job tonight so far.
3. All else fails, iso Harris on Young. No way he stays in front of Furor Teutonicus ever.

I hate to admit this, but Mitchell Young is more athletic than Sacre. If it weren't for Rob's size, Young might be really giving him fits.

I agree and it can be key to help GU get points towards the end of the game. Lately they have been going through droughts from the field to end games. That can't happen tonight. If they don't score a field goal in the last 7:12 minutes like last night... we don't win this game. Go inside young men and go to the rim with all you have.

I think Rob just needs to use his size better like last night late when he drew the charge. People cite bad defensive position by Dower often but Sacre has been caught more than a few times in the low block and he has gotten used to having his size bail him out. Make Young catch it up high in the key and keep your feet no more than shoulder width apart and don't let him get under you..
