If you were to pick one if that would make the Zags have a productive run.

I am going to pick maybe the most obvious if but the one over the years that has haunted Zags when they had every other chance to win their NCAA tournament game.

They need to be able to put the ball in the hoop.

Defense does well when the ball won't go in, but it only goes so far.

Time after time Zag teams slump when the offense dies. Not just some, but when the lights seem to get brighter and the arena seems just that much bigger, the floor seems to be elevated above the bench and the Zag score just will not move.

No football stadiums with bizarro sightlines.

If the zags catch breaks tey will move on. They've been relatively unlucky till last year when the brackets came out. This bracket does them no favors but maybe it will later on. Gotta get by Seton Hall first.

Go zags!

Playing with confidence and believing they can beat the other team who is warming up on the other side of the court. Being humble. And they are both of these. Also if we play a team who is overconfident we'll beat them.

Go Zags!!!

If we can stay out of foul trouble. Especially Kyle and Domas.

Two of: Wiltjer, eMac, Perkins, Melson

If two of them shoot above average from 3, we win. When our shots are falling it opens everything else up, when KW shoots 2-17, it's tough.

Sabonis avoids foul trouble...

esp. if you mean Kyle W,
I don't mind if Kyle D fills up his foul sheet, its part of his hustle

This team is confident, if not cocky. Perhaps even beyond their skill level. That's a big deal in the NCs.

I apologize, I think I misunderstood this thread.

Actually, I think it was probably more like you, for just a bit, thought you were in the Foo ;^)

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we would all have a Merry Christmas! Sorry I couldn't stop myself after laughing over woohoo's response.....

Go Zag's.............playing on house money!

If they play scared, they will lose. Sabonis will be fine. I'm worried about the rest.

03-14-2016, 07:02 PM
Easy for me: Wiltjer shoots well and with volume. He can help spread the floor and let the guards attack and Domas dominate.

If EMAC plays at the level we have recently seen we win. If SH is successful at stripping and stealing as they have done all year we are in trouble.

I think we are forgetting that if Wiltjer would have even been 75% of himself against SMU...we win or go to OT with that game. We've made some thorough improvements since then.

A more obscure point, but if the team is playing desperately (ala WCC tourney) most of the critical elements will come together.

But fouls loom as the big if.

03-15-2016, 07:53 AM
No we were all wrong. If we score more points we will win the game. That's the biggest if
