Which team do you want to win tonight?

Es macht nichts...the Zags are playing against themselves. The opponent does not matter, at least this year.

We'll be very good next year, but very young. With Ballo, Timme, Petrusev, and Watson on the front line, our opponents aren't going to get very many second chance points.

Probably better for us that Saint Mary's wins.

Some people will probably say Saint Mary's for another Q1 win, but I honestly don't think it matters at this point. I feel that San Diego would be a tougher game than Saint Mary's, but I agree with TexasZagFan, the only team that can stop GU from winning tomorrow is GU. That might sound disrespectful to the other teams, but that's not what I'm trying to do. GU is just that good.

SMC won both their games vs USD by 20 pts.

St Marys is currently ranked 37th, thus better for us, but as said above, it is what it is at this point. Although, if/when eyeing an overall #1, another potential Quad 1 doesn't hurt.

I do wonder how desperate SMC will play, all the energy, emotion, frustration built up from missing the at large last yr to having a chance this year, etc.

I expect aggressive, desperate, physical play, the 50-50 balls could be intense, probably no freebie layups in transition tomorrow.

Hope everyone keeps it clean, smart, and fundamental.

Pepsi or Coke? Sprite or 7-UP? Does it really matter? We will be favored by at least 15. Wake me up when I am sitting in my seat at the Honda Center; at least then I can see a competitive 2nd half. These 30 point wins are getting a bit tedious.

USD is actually a pretty fun team to watch. Pinero is a stud. I think they have a decent NIT shot with a win tonight.

Actually that would be super cool for them. A really fun opportunity they would relish.

Hope they get a shot.

Agree. Be a nice step in the right direction too. We know they’re a tough out too. They might give zags a much better game than Saint Mary’s would .... they’ve been a better matchup

Iím rooting for USD. They play tough D that makes GU work although they may be too tired tomorrow to put up much of a fight.

Good answer, that was freaking hysterical. I seriously busted out in laughter when I read this. I think both teams are headed to the NIT, they have good metrics. I'd love to see either SMU or SD boat race a Pac-12 team in the NIT, would make my night complete.

I expect St. Mary's to take the air out of the ball, but I'm not certain Jordan Ford can handle the load.

We play like we did tonight and we’ll beat em by 20 pts. Good to have Tillie back. Defend Ford and Fitz and we'll clean up. Tillie needs to be defended by SMC or he'll score well. Rui and Clark should have monster games when they sag off to defend Tillie.

SMC obviously doesn't match up well with this year's Zag team, and I do think that USD is a better "warmup" for the tourney, particularly for facing defensive minded, grinder teams. USD is impressive.

I do worry that SMC is going to pull all the stops tomorrow. My biggest fear is one of our guys getting hurt. There seemed to be a lot of bloodletting in both semifinal games.

been going on 15 yrs now.

the worst offenders we've ever played. never even notice moving or knee/hip check screens until we play St Mary's.

Tillie is also one of the best hi-lo passers I've seen in a GU uniform. We've had some good ones. His passes are so pin point they surprise they often surprise the post player.

So next year, great rim protecting and defensive rebounding maybe, but struggle elsewhere. Struggle to score? Or not likely with Norvell and Kispert back the three ball should still be there. Maybe more bunnies missed inside with posts being raw.
