This game will determine how much Kool Aid I'm gonna drink. I have not taken a single sip yet.

Perkins and Sabonis are the players that will do the convincing for me. If those two show up as advertised, I'm going to set the bar high for this team.

I'll never forget one time in college my roommate and I were flipping through the channels and came across the Division 2 women's national championship game. We watched for 5 minutes of game action and saw one attempted field goal. Just turnover after foul after turnover after foul. The worst thing I've ever seen. On the bright side at least the Zags are winning. I feel like when this usually happens we're always losing when we pick up with the action.

Gary's shot is off. They are face-guarding Pangos now.

Tough to see Sabonis sitting after dominating in so many areas, except fouls.

Nice to see Wiltjer take it, finally.

Wesley working hard on D, but not involved on offense yet.

Guards too 3 happy for my taste.

Work to get Kevin open looks. Haven't seen a true off-ball screen for him.

Perkins needs to utilize what he's known for -- passing and pushing the ball.

Nunez stepping up when called/forced upon.

Maybe ball screen for Wesley to open up the dribble drive would be nice as well.

Right now its 3pt or Karnowski down low. Need to mix it up soon.

Agreed. A few of his shots were very un-Gary-like. Flat and simply off.

Still interesting we attempted 16 3's. On pace for 32. Especially when our rebounding and post game are effective.

Hope Few doesn't hold back the guys with 2 fouls. He has tendency to "over protect" players with fouls, esp in big games.

We have depth, utilize it. Its a strength, maximize it.

Just like NCAA Tournament Games, these type of games are ALL IN. I recall Few sitting out best players vs Ohio St a couple years back b/c they had 3 or 4 fouls with 5 mins to go -- in a tied game.

Not holding it against him, just sometimes you must take risks to get to the promised land.

We final have serious depth, I just hope we don't sit our best players because they could foul out.

Wonder if Wesley can get something going, although being defended well. His couple TO's looked very sloppy, but he's a talent. Can't count him out.

Good to see Wiltjer show some fight at end of 1st half.

More Sabonis. 'nuff said.

Keep feeding the big man -- PK. He's a great passer and wasn't afraid to take it...at will. Opened up our offense from get-go.

tone down 3's unless its Pangos.

Nunez held down the fort with great effort, some moxie, and focus.

Gary Bell is off, yet usually is when required to exert everything he's got on D.

Perkins needs to put ball on floor and starting moving the offense.

Get Sabonis and Karnowski going in 2nd half. Allow Wiltjer to work his game. Get Pangos shots. Wesley...where are ya?

Hope BW doesn't get frustrated with his role on a big-time team. Could easily see this become the case...definitely not going to "get his" with so many great players/options.

Can't believe both Sabonis and PK with 3 fouls. Darn. Really their type of game/moment to shine.

Who else can step up down the stretch besides Pangos???

He seems to always make the 'spectacular' play on both sides of the court.

If he reels in some of those blooper decisions, kid could be uber special talent. Already an excellent player who would be starting any other season.

Wesley is a really good rebounder as well.

When him and Sabonis play together, our rebounding goes through the roof. Both have great anticipation and attack the ball. Nice to see.

Sabonis needs 30 mins a night. A pro in the making.

Thank goodness for Pangos.

Excellent point. Our biggest strength.

No defense can key in on one, or two, or even three players....ALL can light it up.

Perkins with some nice moves and play.

Although, way to reliant on the 3 ball. You are not Pangos, not yet.

He's so nifty, quick, strong with the ball...why shoot so many deep balls?

Use your talents, Pangos shoots because he's the best in college bb.

Great to see Zag players working hard on all areas when the shot isn't falling. GBJ - never dropped off defensively. Wesley - has been an active rebounder and defender. Wiltjer - working hard until he finally got some space for 3s. These Zags are mentally tough.

The passing with Perk and Pangos in game is a sight to behold. GBJ with nice passing as well.

Our bigs is what makes the difference. Remember how Sacre or Dower or Elias never really passed the ball. Nothing against them, just shows you how well Karnowski and/or Sabonis and/or Wiltjer can move the ball as well.

Impressive.

Number 1 coaching job, getting Perkins up to speed. There is a pretty big drop off in the offensive flow when Pangos sits. To be expected, he's a freshman.

He's looking to score is the problem. Just play his game. He seems to want-in on the scoring fun. When Pangos drains a 3, Perkins shoots one too..

Point is, while he's not shooting at the moment, you can see he's trying to get it going.

Play off others. You will be rewarded. Many of Pangos points came off passing the ball first.

GBJ, Wiltjer, Wesley all had assists to Kevin.

Won't get picked up in the stats but Karnowski is quietly dominating on the defensive end of the court. His command of the offense is impressive also, even though he isn't scoring. He's facilitating on that side well.
