I want to see more of the same on offense and less of the same on defense.

Lower scoring game -

GU - 95
TSU - 72

Game never seems in doubt but Zags struggle defensively allowing Texas Southern to remain in striking distance. Rui and Clarke learn scoring against D-1 bigs w size and athleticism will be a challenge. Fan base laments how helpful Larsen's size would have been vs this team. Coaches use this game as opportunity work on team D, emphasize that rebounding has to be an all hands on deck affair this season and getting out and scoring in transition has got to be a priority this season as Zags will drift toward becoming overly reliant on distance shooting in half-court vs teams w size.

So I just watched the highlights of the Texas Southern - Baylor Game...three things I took away:

1.) Texas Southern plays small the whole game (4 guards and 1 forward -> #5 Trayvon Reed, who is listed at 7'2" and has some hops and plays athletic at that height)

2.) Texas Southern used fast break, transition baskets to get back in this game, they were down 16 points at the 13:00 minute mark in the 2nd half and Baylor refused to slow them down on transition...looked like a lot of their players couldn't get back on defense or when they did, they over-helped when it came to one dribble drive and a kickout for a 3-pointer...basically they ran nobody off the 3-point line.

3.) After the 13:00 mark, Baylor committed 9 of their 19 turnovers, went 6 for 20 from the field....a long stretch that was included a 3-13 mark...yuck....was 3-11 from the charity stripe...including 1-4 on one-and-ones at the end of the game...double yuck...I'm not saying Texas Southern doesn't deserve to say they didn't win the game...but it clearly looks like Baylor stunk it up pretty good during winning time...or losing time...

Highlights for those interested:
https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/p/texas-southern-vs-baylor-basketball-highlights-2018-19/vp-BBPqNyg

And I predict that while Texas Southern will send out Trayvon Reed 7'2" and Jeremy Combs 6'7" to start down low...when we get a few of these guys in foul trouble...they'll likely need to go small against us which will open up a huge hole in the key...they simply don't have the depth when we rotate in a guy like Filip Petrusev.

Score: Zags - 95
TSU - 76

Zags by 21. GU 99 TS 78. Defense will slowly improve over the next few games as the Zags get Crandall up to speed, and the team gets used to being without Tillie.

I am hoping that the coaches get that point across before the game.

More than anything, I want to see Texas Southern defended down low, and Tex Southern's score below 70.

BTW, many of us here, having seen Texas Southern in years past are fans of the program. Note the team is generally very high character, they play hard, and the coach never stops coaching, even with game out of reach (if same coach).

Thank you for that. I would hope/expect his values to be imprinted on the program. Something worked at Baylor, and clearly our staff respects the program as continually re-scheduled.

New coach is Johnny Jones, fired at LSU. He brought a few of those Tigers with him.

Trayvon Reed is 7'2" & 240Lbs. Got 15 & 12 vs Baylor. Should be fun!

If Texas Southern likes to run, GU should trot out their full court press to slow them down. We need practice in-bounding and bringing the ball up court against Duke and the tough press of Tennessee. We really need to practice the full court press on offense and defense so this is the time to start. We also have to emphasize crashing the boards because TN (and any other big athletic team) will kill us if we rebound like we did against Idaho. We can only compensate for our lack of size with strategy (double teams, etc) toughness, position, and hustle. Sick 'em Snacks.

Zagger
11-09-2018, 01:25 PM
Since TS is likely the best competition yet (other than the secret scrimmage) and Zag defense has been a bit porous....
Zags 100 - TS 80.

I hope to see > 20 point spread + the Zags continue high scoring.
Iíd love to be wrong on my prediction and see < 80 points for Texas Southern.
For individual Zags ....
We know Snax & Rui will do well .... Iíd really like to see Jones or Ayayi or Foster in double figures. While Tillie is gone Iíd love to see our depth get some points thatíll put bounce in their steps on campus :)

Home court keeps the Zags scoring high, but not LMU 1990's high.
Defense gets a bit better.
Texas Southern stays at 72

I'd like to see another fast paced game. Run, run, run. Better 3 pt shooting. I really like seeing the Kennel Club going crazy after the crazy dunks we saw Tuesday. I am hoping Rui continues to entertain us with all his talents. I would really like to see Crandall shoot better. He's much better than he showed on Tuesday. I WOULD like to see Clark play better. I expected to see better D from him. I'm feeling kind of greedy so I'll stop.

Go Zags!!!
