Will the Zags be hungover after the win over Duke or does the Zag machine work towards running on all cylinders a little more?

What do hope to see? What do you expect to see? Predictions?

Have at it boys and girls!

Zags come out playing hard but a little bit fast. Miss three's early with a few dumb turnovers. Five minutes in settle down and it's over from there. 5 minutes plus bench time at the end allows N.D.S to score a bit . 103 -72 Zags win.

This is a well timed game. There is going to be a little bit of a let down after the high of Maui. Few can use this game to snap the team's attention back into focus.

I expect some lackadaisical play with some careless mistakes, but the weight of our depth and talent leads to a 20 pt + win.

I echo those who hope to see a lot of playing time for the bench players. I’d love to see less than twenty-five minutes each for the starters. They’ve earned some rest. I’d like to see Geno, Petrusev, Ayayi, and Foster mixed in to the rotation in both halves with heavy playing time for Geno and Petrusev with the starters.

Zags win 99-65.

I saw that. I'm usually down with Ken. He's pretty accurate. This one is baffling. Duke is an extremely high powered offense. Sure, the Zags gave up a lot of points, but holding Duke to 43% shooting has to count for something.

Zags should dominate on the glass (Bison ranked 349th in the nation in total rebounding). NDSU rotates bulk of the minutes among 8 guys, with no player averaging more than 28 minutes. NDSU bagged a 19-point win over UCSB back on Nov 11th, in Fargo. Temps were in the teens when the Gauchos deplaned at Hector Field, so they were likely a bit stiff at opening tip!

Like to see: Extended minutes for Petrusev, Geno, and JJ. Needed rest for Perk, Rui and Snax. Let Clarke play as long as he can; he had plenty of "pine time" in Maui.

What I would like to see is significant minutes, not just garbage time, for Joel Ayayi. He is talented. I know from watching FIBA Europe U18 games. He redshirted a year out of competition and now he is a cheerleader riding the pine. I don't know what his story is at Gonzaga except that there isn't much depth at the guard position.

TravelinZag
11-25-2018, 03:16 PM
Subs have yet to absorb and implement the Zag system, and need the extra minutes. Also agree that a few of them need to rotate so they have time with the starters to deepen the team's depth. A dwindling number of games to do this, and this should be one.
There may be a few players who have played in few enough games to allow for a redshirt, and time is running out on that decision as well. Little is learned during mop-up minutes.

I want to see a dozen threes. Kispert fining his range and shooting eye. Bench players wrap up the game in the last five minutes.

Guard the three. The Bison played nine players in their last game against Eastern Tennessee, Eight of them shot multiple threes and the ninth shot one. They only made 9-33, but they clearly rely on that. If they are allowed to get it going from the arc, it could be uncomfortable for awhile. They average 30 three attempts per game.

For the first time this year, there are a few things I am hoping to see. I would like to see Crandall take a step up in his play and really run this offense. It felt, to me, that he was starting to get it a little bit in Hawaii but a fully integrated Crandall would be huge for this team. Additionally, I would like to see Petrusev get a solid 20 minutes of playing time to continue to develop into the rotation (granted Tillie will take a lot of his minutes down the road). The biggest thing Petrusev will accomplish development wise will be in the offseason. Which is improving his strength, but he will definately help us throughout this year as well. Other than that, the usual caveat of no injuries would be in order. It would also be nice to see Kispert's outside shot drop more consistently and Clarke to avoid the early fouls. Seriously though, this team isn't even close to being at their peak level yet and they just beat Duke!

they looked ok, Foster 4 boards and 5 assists, and made his last shot created in the mid range. Filip took advantage, and so did Ayayi and Beach even
