264 straight minutes with the lead! Over 13 halfs!

That might be some kind of record.

That might be some kind of record.

Or to put it another way, we have not trailed in 6 1/2 games. That is insane.

What is also kind of insane is that we haven't even trailed 2-0. That's craxy

Hudson said 3 hours, 4 minutes and 27 seconds with the lead. The last time GU was behind was the SMC game when the Zags trailed be a point somewhere in the first half I believe. Santangelo said the must be the "Titanic" of a team holding the lead. I'd be curious what the record would be for a stat like this but I don't know who would have it? Elias Sports?

I just did a quick check and I'm pretty sure it is 264 minutes. Zags haven't trailed since the SMC game with over 4 minutes left in the first half.

IMO, #1 reason we have lead this long is that JWIII wins every opening tip. Still crazy that no other team has scored the first basket.

Hearing a lot about "not trailing" for so much time. Never really thought about it? Is that rare? I really just don't know.

On a side note, I've never watched BYU at home. Pretty intense atmosphere. I would compare that to our house but no way do we have that many students in the house. Not sure what the Marriott holds. Did they say 18k?

Attendance was 18,980 something. Almost 19k. A tough atmosphere to get that win and continue to hold the lead.

Call me a heretic, but I'd have no problem with SCU taking an early lead on Saturday. Stats like that IMO aren't worth a darn. OTOH, 23-0 is the only stat I'm focused on.

But it really is amazing that we haven't even given up 2 pts off the tip. Those are some low odds there.

I can't recall a Zag who won the opening tip so frequently. Would be nice if there was a way to research that. I recall a few guys who pretty much always lost the opening tip, and we started wondering if that was part of Few's strategy, ha ha.

I have watched every game for years,like most of us here and this is very impressive.I wondered why we had Karno trying to jump the last few years .Few is starting to realycoach this year.

This is the stat that hopefully doesn't distract players as we move forward. It reminds me of Brett Favre's consecutive starting record. It's a cool stat, but ultimately fine when it ends.

Few has recognized that J3 is so happy he's here (instead of Missouri), he's literally jumping out of the gymnasium!

Poor Rob Sacre could never win a tip.

I agree it is a pretty irrelevant stat, I am pretty amazed though that it has gotten to be such a thing. It is really rare for any team to not trail by a bucket or two in the very early minutes of a game even when they are as good as this team is.

They don't play anybody.

I read it on the internet.
