Short window.. Do the Zags roll them like they did in Provo? Or does BYU play senior night spoiler again?

What are you hoping to see? Expecting to see? Thoughts? Predictions?

Have at it boys and girls!

BYU is 2nd in the league, have some pride to play for after being blown out at home. I expect max effort from BYU, and I expect some emotions bubbling up in our guys, tough dynamic.

But no way is this team allowing BYU to take them down a seed.

Zags 96-70. Jones, Perkins, and Crandall leave on a high note.

I will be curious to watch the teamís defense on Haws. I suspect that Jones and Crandall will start the game for Senior Night. If they can bottle Haws up early, this will be a long and miserable night for BYU.

I’m so glad Perkins set his record last game. The last thing this team needs on Senior night is that distraction. The offense stalled when Perkins had the record tied. I’m sure everyone wanted his record-setter to be a highlight dunk or similar. It seemed like they were pressing for a while. My prediction is that they are going to play loose against BYU and run them out of the gym.

Rui = 20
Brandon = 20
Perkins = 25+
Norvell = 20
Jeremy = 15
Crandall = 15
Hmmm, that’s 115 so far ..... I’ll stick with Perks getting 25+ and both Jeremy & Geno getting at least 10 apiece. With Kispert & Petrusev likely finding the hoop too ...... Suffice it to say ....

Last game for Zags in K2 this year. Thanks so much. What a great team. I hope to see a lot of love and appreciation, as well as ALL the guys having fun with nice big smiles on their faces.....10 Three's. Come on. We can do it.

The Ituru pygmies have three separate terms for stages of dying. Senior night for me is the first stage of the coming of the end of 17-18 basketball season. It doesnt seem so long ago that I was eagerly happy to see our first game of the season back in November. Hopefully there will be 10 or 11 more games. I hope the players don't get as nostalgic as I do. It is BYU' favorite day in the year to pay us a visit, right after everyone has been focusing on the long view of the season and careers of Seniors. Not the best frame of mind for turning the killer instinct on for an immediate battle. Kind of like the marine's first morning after returning from a tour in the Middle East. He is cuddled up with his wife, and gets the call to report to duty already. Like right away.

I'm piggy backing on this prediction from JP...sounds good to me!

Really emotional night for Perkins in particular, not many D-1 players put their heart and soul and sweat into a program for 5 years the way he has. Just considering the peaks and valleys of his particular journey, his incredibly toughness in fighting through injuries and even more incredible humility in reigning in his game for betterment of the team and even moving off the ball for same. Josh Perkins is officially my all-time favorite Zag upon consideration of his career to date...now it's time for some icing on the cake JP! "His guys" will not let the Zags lose tonight..no way.

BYU has had plenty of new information to study since our first meeting. My prediction is they will try as hard as they can to keep the Zags out of rhythm and slow them down with smothering defense, especially early in the game to get into their heads a bit. The Zags killed their offense with intense defense on key players last time and will have to do the same this time. The Cougars are going to put it all out there tonight there's no question. Turnovers, FT's and 3's will all be key. This one is no bunny.

BYU needs to "slow it down" in order to compete, but that is not who they are.

what I am hoping to see is 1st) a solid Zags win, 2nd) no injuries, and 3rd) for the second group of players (Kispert, Crandall, Petrusev, and Jones) to continue to get better and step up their game. To go as far as possible it will take more than just Perkins, Clarke, Rui, and Norvell....they will need some help from Kispert (who needs to work on defense), Pertrusev (who needs to work on D and confidence), Crandall (who needs to work on decision making) and Jones (who needs to work on offense and rebounding) ..Go Zags!

GeorgiaZagFan
02-23-2019, 12:06 PM
...but something about BYU allows doubt to creep into my mind.....is this the game where foul trouble limits Rui and Clarke allowing Childs to have a big night? ...is this the game where Haws goes for 35 points hitting 9 of 13 threes? ...is this the game where some unknown twenty-something year old freshman (Baxter, Harding, Lee) has the game of his career?

???? when you consider that last 2 times Gonzaga lost to BYU at home on senior night, the Zags went on to the Elite-8 and the National Championship game!!!

Double team Childs every time he touches the ball. Faceguard Haws. Let ByUtes guards drive the lane & get swatted by Rui & Clarke. Should be a rout. But, Senior night never good for GU lately -- likely not tonight either. ESPN national viewers suffer another ZAG east coast, late night snoozer: GU 88 Cougs 69.
