Very short window.

What are we expecting out of the Dons? Odd scheduling with a home game followed by a road game two days later... all setting up for SMC round 1 in Spokane next week.

What do you want to see out of the Zags?

Predictions?

Have at it boys and girls!

I've seen enough nail biting GU/USF games that I think maybe I'd better temper my spread. Hoopaholic's prediction might be hard to beat although I think USF might score higher at home .....

These games (esp. at War Memorial) are always weirdly competitive no matter whether USF is having an up or down year (their having lost to LMU likely won't help us either).

Hoped to be there but bummed I won't be, seen so many games and Zag games at War Memorial over the years
The coaches evidently share the bathroom with the spectators, ran into Rex in there once at halftime
Hope the Zags keep it going on the road

Tonight vs USF I hope to see Tillie locked in and dominating for a consecutive game rather than disappearing. He needs to make a habit of consistently impacting the game on both ends; heís got the talent to do it, does he have the will to do it?

It would be cool to see Kispert have a breakout game where his 3-ball is going in, he makes athletic plays and just sort of reminds everyone (and himself) that he has the talent to dominate at the D1 level.

Perkins focused and the team protecting the ball, valuing every possession. More Rui, more Larsen, more Melson scoring, more Norvell doing it all...that is all :-). I love this team! Also, if JWIII isnít 100% then sit him out to get ready for SMC. Long season and WE need JWIII healthy.

I'm hoping to see good chemistry and fluidity in running their offensive and defensive sets.
Looking forward to see how Rui plays on the road.
I'm thinking Kispert could go off tonight and hits at least 4 threes coming in off the bench.
I'm looking forward to seeing the best bench in America.

Go Zags!!!

War Memorial can get rocking with those stands above the basket on one end right on top of players, can be a tough place to play if it's close and USF gets a sniff of belief.
Hope to see the leaders emerge on the road and do their thing. I do think Josh is one of those guys, growing into it with a test on the road tonight, excited to see him play with the opportunity and hope he plays well. Revitalized Tillie and JIII and emerging Rui could electrify those stands above the rim, hope to see that too along with the usual suspects
Hope you're right BayAreaZagFan!

I hope that this is an easier game than I expect it to be. USF is better than some of the teams we've been playing, and for some reason playing down there seems to always be a problem.
GU: 75 to 65

The "problem" playing USF tonight is playing SMC next week. Hard to believe the line is only 13, but the line-makers are paid to make fools of the betting public, and they do at an uncanny rate. So far they've been off, underestimating the Zags game after game (or over-estimating the dregs of the WCC, whichever you prefer). Think they've got this one right. Zags play worst game of the year, though it's hard to imagine worst than against SDSU, and still win by 13. GU 74-61.

Y'all had about 5-6 posters who came pretty close to the final score. Congrats.
Some of you still want to exit the WCC ? S**t can and does happen.
Looking forward to Thursday. Good luck Zags. I really hope both teams play well.

The line makers are paid to make lines that will get an even amount of money on both sides, so unless we are calling all gamblers fools, then your statement couldn't be further from the truth

You're correct MH. And it would be a slight exaggeration to label all gamblers fools. Allow me re-phrase: Gamblers, (the insider term used in Vegas to describe oddsmakers) despite setting game spreads to attract bets on both teams, have a knack for making fools of partisan bettors, blinded by loyalty to their favorite teams.
