Hi friends! Time to bring back the stats. This might be the game of the Thanksgiving weekend. KenPom predictor suggests a one point game (and not in our favor -- 77-76).

Hopefully, defense prevails.

Let's not forget that we both have transfers from Rice on our respective teams. What are the odds of that?

GU has a tradition of beating Florida on Black Friday.

Look at effective FG% for and against. Basically, top 20 across the board except . . .

Also, these stats really show that Florida can score it.

Good job Cad! I was wondering ! Meanwhile , this is pretty much an even game according to the data.
I give a strong edge to Zag defense. Early in the year, when there's a barrage of tune ups, the data is usually skewed due to soft competition. If the defense does tonight what it did last night, we win. Not by much but this team is rapidly rounding into a top 10 team. This one will be a squeaker. 1-3 pts either way.

This early one has to ask who have they played in establishing these stats vs. who have we played? I haven't looked at their schedule but stats might not tell the whole story on several levels. If Josh stays hot I give us a good chance. Who knows, maybe its Corey or Melson tonight. Should be a dandy game no matter how it comes out. GO ZAGS!!

Supposed to be 830 Pacific on ESPN2, but tip time depends on when the game ahead of it ends.

I believe it would be 8:30 pm Pacific Time, not 9:30... ESPN2 is channel 209 on DirecTV

Ya was just editing. Im in mountain and mistyped. Hope it gets off on time. Still groggy, last night ended about 5 hours before I had to get up today for work. Always tough to sleep right after a game too.

Florida has won by large margins, but I don’t think they played any good teams. Stanford lost to EWU!
