First of three games in five days as Zags finish up OOC. Just an early heads up. I am going to be out of town for the Santa Clara game on 12/30. I will post the thread for it, but results will not be back until after the new year.

Thoughts about this game, what would you like to see, predictions... Have at it boys and girls!

- No injuries!!!

- Also, I'd like to see Perkins get less than 30 minutes of playing time (not due to fouls). He has played so many minutes already - this would be a good opportunity to get Wade some run.

- While Perkins is in, I'd like to see a Perkins/Norvell/Kispert backcourt for an extended period of time

I'm hoping to see JWIII continue to play a great game consistently. This means that every game he comes out to play as the leader of this team and plays up to his abilities. He needs to continue to pass when he's doubled or tripled and reduce his turnovers.

I hope to see Larsen get more minutes because I love how he plays the game and I love how the team plays when he's in.

I'd like to know why Jessie Wade is NOT playing more. How is his shoulder?

I'd love to see Norvell continue to show his confidence and his talent. I'd like to see him go for 30 tonight.

I really am looking forward to seeing Kispert play. I'm hoping his ankle is better now. Looking forward to seeing him return to full speed. I love his game.

I think the Zags will win by more than 30 points.

Bart, are you gonna make it through WCC season?

CURRENT strength of schedule of NCAA 2017-2018 linked below (obviously will change once WCC play begins).

Let's see, only Michigan St and Texas Southern have played tougher schedules thus far than our very own Zags --- and we're technically tied for 2nd with Mich St on current SOS.

- I think the zags could beat nd by 50, but I think we will get a lot of our wishes, such as more time from Larsen and wade, and maybe kispert, which is a good thing.

- but I still see a 37 pt win.

We have several curmudgeonly types on these boards, and I'm probably a member of that group. Don't sweat it, to know bart is to love him...lol.

Prediction: due to a scheduling oversight, Notre Dame shows up and the Zags beat one and lose to another in a double header. Perkins plays terribly in one game and amazingly in the other. Both ND teams play each other the same night. The GU board reaches critical mass arguing over what a true point guard is, and how to use the transitive property on beating a team that lost to another, and explodes.

Timely, with another thread, I would selfishly love a home-and-home series with North Dakota as it is only about a two-and-a-half hour drive from my place.

I would also like to see North Dakota wear the old Fighting Sioux hockey jerseys but that won't happen either. They were some of the most iconic jerseys in all of college sports. My family would often make the trip south to Grand Forks, ND and the Scheels sports store would have all of the Fighting Sioux hockey jerseys on racks right when you walked into the store. It was a little intimidating. In how it relates to Gonzaga, that Scheels is the first place I ever saw a piece of Gonzaga apparel - I probably bought my first dozen or so Gonzaga t-shirts and sweatshirts from there, and that would have been around about 2002-03... and it was still probably wasn't for a couple more years (until Adam Morrison) that Gonzaga gear started showing up mainstream in other places near me. So I can say with confidence that the fine folks in the Grand Forks Scheels were some of the "early adopters" of Zag nation.

NO INJURIES! This should always, as in NEVER not be, #1 on this thread. The whole is only as good as ALL it's parts this year. Take one key link out of the chain and the whole will be significantly diminished. That might not matter-much in the WCC except for SMC and possibly BYU, but that would be enough to really hurt, maybe enough to miss the dance. No Injuries (.!)

Yes, NO INJURIES

I think this is going to be similar to a scrimmage...except we will play defence and score pretty much at will...Zach, Williams and Tillie are going to have a field day...Josh should have about 9-10 assists and SM should have a lot of steals...Tillie will have 10+ rebounds...

Greg Heister is currently calling the Washington St.-IUPUI game in Pullman (I think; Pac 12 Network shows so damn many replays that I can never tell if games are live anymore). Does that mean he won't be calling a game in Spokane that starts in about an hour?
