Portland was playing O.K earlier in the year but have dropped 4 in a row & having a difficult time putting the ball in the basket.

Rest the player's. Would like to see Rui, Bryan & Jeremy get some run in the 1st half with the 1st unit & would like to see Killian get over 20 minutes.

The Zags can name their score in this one.

I'd like to see the Zags top 100 points in at least one of the Portland games while holding the Pilots to scores in the 50's or 60's and have 30 point win margins in both games. The GU defense has been dazzling compared to any GU teams in memory.

I've always liked Portland and I just cannot put them under 60 nor have more than a 40 point spread in the score :)
It being at home, how well the Zag D is doing (expecting some spiffy steals/dunks on Saturday) and how I feel the Zag 3 point shooting will rebound from last night that I'm going with 100 for the Zags :)

I'd love to see at least 6 Zags in double figures in this game with one Zag being outside of the rotation of 8.

I'm pretty sure the Pilots already know for a fact there is absolutely zero glimmer of hope Saturday night or Monday night. I feel for Coach Porter - beatdown city comin' right up. I'd like to see the following 5 on the floor for last 2 minutes of Saturday night's game: Edwards-Triano-Bakamus-Alberts-J Jones.

Portland lost to SMC by 40, in Portland. You may get your wish PVZ.

This is a tough one to predict. A lot of it depends on how long Few plays his starters, My guess is that he plays them considerably less. That's why they won't hit 100. I think those of tiu who want to see RUI, Alberts and Jones play will get your chance. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE MORE OF RUI. I think he's going to ignite the Kennel. I think we'll also see a lot more of Collins and Tillie. Tullie especially because Collins will share time with Edwards.

What do I hope? I hope that when I post my thread about the post game analysis I hope I have a lot to say about Rui, Yillie, Melson, Alberts and Jones.

Go Zags!!!

I drove over to see the Portland game in Portland about 4 yrs ago with great confidence we would win, and those rascal Pilots whipped us. I also just watched the Iowa State game again last night - a game we didn't pull out of with our own power, but outlasted them. That was truly a game that could have gone either way, as the last ten minutes was all Cyclones.
Nevertheless this team is like a car going 70 mph with the engine working at about 1900 rpm's, basically idling. This is the only team since KO's team two years ago where I have felt we truly belonged in top 5 discussion nationally.

Few tries to keep the score down with the makeup game looming Monday. 9-13 inserted into the game after the next to last TV time out of the game.

He's going to stay with the regular 8 man rotation until he sees the game is out of reach.

First and foremost, NO INJURIES!! Last night you could count about 4 injuries to key players on 4 different teams. All of a sudden seems like they'e dropping like flies. We have great depth, but we really need all we've got. No Injuries!

It's a long season, and you never know when you're going to need to go deep into your bench. Only players averaging 30 or more minutes per game are Josh and NWG. Let's keep it that way.

Just saw on ESPN that Wintering is out for the rest of the season (ACL). Is this new news - or has this been known? It could get ugly tonight (and monday).

I was just signing on and was going to say I waited late with my prediction, wanting to check the most recent injury report, bummer for wintering and Portland if true.
injuries like this and the point guard at Creighton really give you pause, a great year can stumble in a snap with an injury or two.

Just isn't going to happen this season, it appears. Ended up with 2 points in 8 minutes. At 19-0, it's hard to criticize Coach Few's PT decisions. IFIT (in Few, I trust).

Few tried to give him some reps out there, but you can see Rui's just not comfy in the O sets. I'm not criticizing Few btw, just rooting for Rui
