Right now, nothing else matters (except perhaps keeping/getting guys healthy). Go Zags.

Eight games left in the regular season. This year is like non other we've had. BYU has the players. They're at their place. It could be a hard game.
SMC too more so at their place.
Nutpunches in BYU won't help! lol

Let just finish this up undefeated, win the tournament and win 6 in a row. I don't want this season to end!

Deseret News, Jeff Call

Could BYU's next opponent, unbeaten Gonzaga, come to Provo with a No. 1 ranking? (http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865672140/Could-BYUs-next-opponent-unbeaten-Gonzaga-come-to-Provo-with-a-No-1-ranking.html?pg=all)


No matter where coach Mark Few’s Gonzaga team is ranked, BYU is confronting a big challenge.

“They’re really good. I think our guys are really excited to play them. It’s probably as deep and complete of a team Mark’s had for a while,” Rose said. “His guards are really aggressive and strong and he’s got four inside guys who can really score around the basket. They play fast, they play hard and aggressive. It’s a good team. We look forward to playing them and see how we match up, see where we are.”

Beat the Cougars!

It's always a tough game, but interestingly enough, Gonzaga is 3-2 in Provo since BYU joined the WCC.

The Cougars may be 12-1, but they do not have the players to beat the Zags. The fans may be sleeping out to get great seats Thursday, but they will sadly bs surprised by how good the Zags are. I will not buy into the hype, even by some here in this forum, about the chance BYU has to beat the Zags and end our dream quickly. I know how desperate Cougar fans are to dethrone gonzaga. They came into the WCC thinking that they'd take over the WCC quickly because they honestly believed the conference was weak, including Gonzaga. They quickly found out the truth. They have never dethroned THE ZAGS. They hope they will finally do it Thursday, but their hope will turn into despair. GOOOOOOO G O N Z A G A!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I didn't realize that until you said it. You're right, the conference season will be over in a blink of an eye. Enjoy this month everyone! They don't come around for most fans often, if ever.

This type of season has never come around for the Zags...22-0! By all means, let's savor it.

Weirdly, I think that's maybe the best way to put it.

I, too, like others usually worry about the game going into BYU. But, as of Monday, something has changed my view of the team - that it has the "it" factor (and it wasn't the ranking) and I think we'll go in and play a close game until about the 10:00 mark and then, like SMC, we'll putt-away to end up over 10 pts ahead.

There is something off about all of some of the comments coming from Coach Rose and interviewed players.

If the Zags put this one away (and possibly depending on *how*), I would not want to be Randy Bennett.

GU's three point percentage has been pretty bad (20s and 30s) since the St. Mary's game. Need to pick it up.

I think it's like when Yogi Berra said 90% of baseball is half mental, or something like that.

Perkins/ NWG dinged up (back/hip); seemed to effect their shooting. Two game slump for Matthews. Melson has found his shot, though; around 49% from 3 the last 10-12 games.

Still scoring well enough w/ the post game for now. The shooting will come back.

IMO, the quick 3 on offense is a tactic employed by Few to speed up the pace of the game, at the start of the game. It's deadly when Matthews and NWG are on during the first 5-6 minutes.

His statements don't seem incredibly confident. If the belief for a win isn't there at that level of the personnel, they are going to get rolled.

As far as my second statement, if Gonzaga comes to Provo and is able to assert their will, going into Moraga they'll have that "kill switch for the road game against a quality opponent" down. It will be a savage beating.

I feel that way every game, this one maybe a little less. Every game the Zags have a target painted on them. It is every other teams super bowl. A loss to BYU or SMC is bearable. A loss to one of the lower tier teams of the WCC is unbearable, but always a chance because they are going to play their best game of the year. A little slip by the Zags and the unthinkable becomes a thought.

I feel that the Zags SHOULD be able to win out, at least in conference...but every game feels like a trap game, at least to me!

As Yogi Berra once said: "Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hittin'..." :)

I hear you but I also think this depends; oftentimes the Zags look to establish the post early in games, and early shot clock jacks contested from deep don't do that; if they are open on the break for 3 that's different, but as others have noted in various ways, Mathews' shot selection can be suspect in this regard at times
