Which is German for... wait... no... this isn't the foo.

OK this unbalanced schedule is making things a bit weird. We've play some teams on both ends... and still have to play USD twice. Thursday is the home version.

So... what do you want to see, what do expect, predictions?

Have at it boys and girls!

San Diego is doing OK this season .... If the Zags ratchet up the D ..... Zags 90, Beach Bums 65

Kispert ill-rewarded for returning to form with a double/double. More quality minutes for him and Hansen. Run the Toreros off the line and play suffocating defense. May trim the margin, but more important.

Not sure why USD seems to be not as sharp the last few games but against SMC their 3 point defense was "lock down."

Yours is probably the closest to reality. We've been getting everyone's best shot, as usual, and that was manifested in Saturday night's close victory over USF.

I have no doubt we'll be ready mentally for BYU on Saturday, and there's that five day break since our last game.

We're entering the Dog Days of February, and we seemed to survive January with that one hiccup.

No injuries. 5 in double figures. Tighter D on the 3. More Tillie, Kispert. Larsen. Perks penetrating only if, you know.

I'd like to see Erroll Knight deliver the game ball.

01-29-2018, 01:24 PM
Since it's in Spokane, I hope to see a fast-paced, balanced game that ends in a blow-out victory for the good guys, but I'm honestly not sure if that's what I'll get, so I'm going to be conservative with this -

I want to see myself preparing happy nachos and not caring that I catch the first couple minutes of the 2nd half because we're already up by 17.

01-29-2018, 06:45 PM
Ugly and low scoring is my guess. Zags need to pound it down low... and play some D

No idea. Zags have been all over the place the last couple of weeks.

Zags should hit 100 against them, but it is more like rolling dice.

I will go with Zags 79

I just want to see 40 minutes of consistently inspired play by the Zags. We are more talented but we've got to learn, fast, to keep the pedal down and not coast. This team can score with most teams around, but if they don't take care of the ball and paly consistently solid defense...it's going to be a disappointing end in the tournament. In any case, my usual no injuries caveat.

Even though San Diego is currently in 4th place in the WCC, it doesn't mean that much because their victories have been against the easier teams in the WCC. I don't see that much of a problem for the Zags. I'm not saying that it won't be a tough game, it might be. What I'm saying is that it will be a 20 point victory. AT LEAST.

I hope to see the Zags keep improving their chemistry and cohesiveness on the court. They have been doing that, and I believe that by tomorrow we'll see the best example yet of the team opporating with high levels of both of these characteristics. I hope the Zags get back to playing great defense, and hold San Diego below 60 points. I don't know who will have a big offensive game because we have 7 players who are capable of just that. My favorites are Rui, Tillie and Kispert. It's been awhile simce Norvell has played big time; so maybe he will be the one who scores 20 tomorrow. But then there is Melson who does seem to be finding his offensive game. It's going to be fun to see who are leaders are tomorrow.

Go Zags!!!

Zags 75 USD 62. The Torreros will try to slow the game down since it is the only way they can win.

I'll be in the house. My first trip to the MAC.

Whatever happened to the team that embarrassed THE Ohio State University two short months ago? Not even a facsimile of that group now. Certainly not good enough to look past Toreros to BYU game, but I think they will & the result will be a real Dogfight, or rather, a Bullfight. USD coughs up late lead, expires in the end: 74-69.

Would prefer something more lopsided, but I'm not counting on it. We seem to be in a transition and haven't fully settled on roles.

Limit their FB opportunities, while executing ours

GU movers the ball quickly in the half court and hit at least nine of their open threes

Have an effective high-low post game

Rui to hit his 10-15 jump shots

Josh six assists and no more than 1 TO

Silas to take the ball to the hoop

Zach to have a good shooting & passing first half to set the tone

No injuries
