Every time I look up these WCC teams to get a perspective on where I should score it... I get depressed.

Don't see this being close... at all.

Better defense than @ LMU. Less concerned with how much zags score, I want to see them hold them to 50's or lower in scoring. When the 3's aren't hitting in March, you can still advance if you can stop the other team from scoring!

Also - no injuries.

I'd like to see a big enough lead for the back of the rotation to get double digit minutes. Starters don't need to go 30+ minutes, not with a road game at USF two nights later.

Are you intimating a lackluster performance from our beloved Zags, or are they looking ahead to USF?

I try to be positive about Portland since I live there and go to a few of their games. They hired a celebrity coach and built an impressive new training and conditioning facility for their athletes and have one of the nicest - or perhaps the nicest arena in the WCC. But in spite of all that, they are sucking the bottom of NCAA Division I BB just like those algae-eating catfish my grandson has in his aquarium.

GU by 28+ going away.

Go Bulldogs!

I feel it is time for a real tail kicking by the Zags - on both D and O.
I'm going with Zags 100 - Pilots 50.

What I want to see ..... 7 Zags with over 10 points and Larsen being one, low Zag TOs, lots of fun assists and some crafty crowd pleasing steals leading to buckets.
Go Zags!

Well, if we play tough and keep it within the spread and/or maybe not get as trounced as bad as other lower-tier WCC teams, I'll be happy I guess. \_(ツ)_/

I wish I could say more positive things, but...we suck, I mean, we're a young team making freshman mistakes. Sorry for disappointing again this year Zags faithful. Hoping this team can mature and gel into something bigger in the coming years, but I'm sure the older folks have heard that time and time again....

At some point during their meetups, I want to see either Diabate or Rui to dunk or block a shot over the other and then say to their face "お前はもう死んでいる."

I hope Diabate can share some spotlight in Japanese media with Rui. He just got his first ever double double and has made huge improvements from the offseason.

right now I'm hoping to see better cohesiveness or team chemistry. It's time for the team to make good strides in doing this. I began seeing it last week. What it looks like is fewer turnovers, better screening, better passing up court on fast breaks, better helping on team defense. Diving for more loose balls. I want to see a hot fire burning in the bellies of all Zags and I'm hoping for AT LEAST a 30 point victory.

Continue to experiment and blend lineups; versatility could be exceptional by tourney time. Can Wade run the offense for a few minutes, spelling Josh? Suffocating defense: run them off the arc, press and break a bit more.

I would like to see Wade get about 15mins of PT with the top seven players so his on court time

No injuries! Continue our excellent defence on our home court - holding WCC teams to the low 50's. I would like to see Wade play 15 minutes with the top seven players so he gets some "quality" minutes on the court. I would also like to see Tillie get more meaningful possessions on the block. Zach have two good halves. Melson have a confidence building game on both sides of the court. Josh to have another game with 6-10 assists with few TO's and double digit scoring AND Rui to have at least one coast-to-coast dunk...

I recall from a recent broadcast an announcer saying that Gonzaga had set a record for average margin of victory last year at 27 points per game. Are we way ahead of that this season. Wouldn't that be cool for this team to break that record!

I hope that early in the second half, as I start to doze off watching another monumental mismatch against a low major college program , a message crawls along the bottom of the screen......."Gonzaga and Big East have reached agreement. Gonzaga to join Big East for 2018-19 season"

Other than that, i cant think of anything I could potentially see tonight that would interest me in the least. The point spread is -31 for gods sake. Playing against teams like Portland is like playing against air.

Searching to find a way the Pilots can keep it within 30. Let's see: Zag's overconfident? Don't think so - not after the boys got lit up by Few & staff for last week's disinterested finish. Well then, Kennel Club on break, Mac Center full of somnambulant geezers? Nope. KC is back and rarin' to go. GU looking past Portland to Bay Area venture on Saturday & SMC next week? Possibly, but even if that were the case, hard to see Pilots, with their lack of offensive firepower, putting over 60 on the board. Let's say they do that. Still, their interior defense will have no answers for JW III, Larson & Tillie. Norvell, Kispert, Perkins Melson kick in 13 3's. In a dunkfest, GU 96 UP 60.

We have at least 4-6 games where a 27 point margin would be a shocker-BYU, SMC, USD.
