The Provo Herald article is actually pretty well written. I liked it, thx.

Interesting that Haws said "there's no pressure on us, we're just trying to win a basketball game" - - inferring the pressure is on the Zags.

Is he telling us that or is he telling himself that?

I forgot that last time they had lost to Portland in 3 OTs right before playing us. Then played with us for a half (2 pts) and then got blown out as they wore down. That's not going to happen here. Thursday night game, sold out, NCAA tourney maybe on the line. They won't get worn down (maybe foul out, God we'd never hear the end of that) but they'll be tough.

For those who may not know nor remember, the deseret news is the LDS church's wholly-owned house organ. The SLC Tribune is/was owned by the McCarthy family (Catholics and mostly all GU alums and big time patrons), for whom the McCarthy Athletic Center (K2) is named.

The pressure is all on Gonzaga. GU knows they need to win for seeding in March. BYU already knows they will get a home game in the NIT.
