The Zags have a bit of a let up after a very big win last night. Santa Clara is no slouch. They are tied for 3rd place with BYU. The Zags had better be ready to play.

I hope Mr. Mathews can find his shot. I'm beginning to worry about him. I hope he breaks out of that slump and cans 6 thee's.
Great defense holds this team together. .

Not worried about Santa Clara in the Kennel. GU wins by 25. Also not worried about Mathews. He's a seasoned vet who is a little streaky at times, but his shot and consistency have been proven over time. Last night BYU did a good job on him. He can shoot contested shots, but few open looks passed his scrutiny against BYU. I hope Santa Clara throws some more zone at GU. That has ALWAYS been the GU weak spot. The zone leads to low scoring due to worthless passing around the perimeter until the shot clock makes us force up a shot. We can't rely on Goss having a career night to bail us out every time we face a zone. We need a better offense against zone defenses.

Like so many others, I would like to see Mathews hit a ton of threes and get his confidence going again. I'd like to see him attack the basket a bit more as well. GU needs everyone to by flying on all cylinders if they hope to win at SMC next weekend.

I'd also like to see the team REALLY put the clamps on Jared Brownridge. I am tired of seeing him draining threes against the Zags.

Put the game away early, and let the bench guys get some PT. Especially Tillie who has been out a bit.

Beat SCU on their home court by 30... Same result on our court.

More importantly, how are you Reborn? I know you've been suffering from some injuries and ailments. Hope you're feeling better these days!

I view the game thru a different set of lenses...where most want to focus on offensive improvement my concern is giving up almost 50 points in a half

I want to see extremely tough defense and rebounding

I want to see more ball movement seeking a good shot

Zags 90-70. Another one of those games where they'll be up by 30+ with 5 mins left and the subs will see some quality minutes, but give up some points and make the final score seem closer than it really was.

Brownridge gets his. KJ Feagin is nursing an ankle injury and is listed as questionable.

SCU is 342 ( out of 351) in Possessions per game (FWIW, the Gaels are 351), Broncos will try to slow things down but without a prayer of winning @ The Kennel.

Thanks for asking abd caring. I HAVE TO LAUGH as I look back at thge old days when we were like cats and dogs. So much better to feel like brothers. I'M DOING BETTER but have a ways to go. I'M getting ready for at least 6 weeks of PT. Most likely more than that. I've been out of my sling for 4 weeks. Been doing exercises at home for two months, I'll continue to do those while I attend PT now. I DO PRETTY GOOD MENTALLY, BIT AT TIMES i GET A LITTLE DOWN BECAUSE IT'S so slow. Recovery is so slow and so long. The pain comes and goes from day to day, and hurts to do the exercises. I'm glad I learned what most athletes learn, "No pain no gain. " STILL TYPING WITH ONE FINGER. Getting a little better, but it's pretty slow.

1st game @ home this season with the #1. Think the team will show the home crowd some spiffy dunks and lots of 3s. 6 Zags in double figures and good D on Brownridge.

A sleeper game against an improving team. Zags played well in the first match-up; Santa Clara did not. Both beat BYU by nearly the same margin. For sure, Zags had a long exhale on the plane back from Provo. In the second half of that game, Zags proved (more than most of could take) they could lapse & recover, lapse & recover, lapse and recover. They'll have had a couple of days to recover. Kennel should be sky high, and setting the bar for the Gaels hosting College Gameday vs. GU next Saturday.

Hope to see additional time for each of the 7-to-10 slots playing with four starters and better play from the starters except W-G (who couldn't have a better game than against BYU)! Pray for no injuries. Love to watch this year's team -- perhaps the most goal-oriented, selfless group ever, and enjoy (but only to a point) watching Brownridge, who puts on a great show.

Can we ask for more? Yes, and we do! We'll seek forgiveness for our selfishness after the season.

Go Zags! FF & beyond!

for Mathews, maybe Few runs some action for him early and often to get him looks; could be wrong but Zags seem to have gone away from that lately, which is fine with NWG and Karno/JWIII/Collins and all that, just saying maybe Few and co. try to help JM get going by going to him

love to see the clamps lol, but maybe a gameplan to contain all other players not named Brownridge while making Jared earn his inside the 3 point line and not at the FT, we'll see.

Just hope the Zags do not expe t to simply walk on the floor and win becasue they're so awesome, that whole thing. I don't think this team will but again, we'll see.

Still no sign that the #1 ranking has caused this team to relax or play tight. They seem to embrace and are ready to prove they are not overrated. I like it and hope it keeps up.

25- to 30-point win; healthy rebounding and assist margin; low TOs; 10 players having at least four minutes; no injuries; 70% FTs; allow KT and NWG additional time off if needed for recovery/lessen chance of re-injury. We are capable of doing this just playing our game. We don't need a better than average game to get there. Let's do it!

It's that time of the year when defense is paramount. We'll see more like Brownridge. Who, ie which guy, stops him? 3 pt shooter and we know he's very very good. How does 1 guy hold him?? It might be too difficult for one player. Maybe it's a schema........I hate two think we need to tie up 2 kids for one sharpshooter.
