What are your keys to the Zags coming away with a W tonight?

Mine are: 3 point defense and defensive rebounding. Take care of those and I like our chances. Let either slide and there might not be much joy in Mudville.

Good inside play - some scoring perhaps, but mostly stopping WSU's bigs because I bet Bennett will just pound it in as much as he can. Also, making an appropriate amount of 3s - don't fall in love with the 3, but the team needs to keep the D honest so Pargo, Bouldin, et al can drive.

Also, good D without fouling and low TOs. We should win on the boards, considering they're more worried about transition and so won't send many guys to the glass (and we'll need to).

TURNOVERS! A couple of those and the cougs can take 10 minutes of game clock away from you.

In the words of the one and only Craig Ehlo, tonight's key to the game is:
"Score more points!!"

The keys are to protect the ball on offense (low/no TOs) and play defense/rebound with same/better intensity than Cougs. If we do those two things we win because we will outscore them if we shoot as well as we are capable.

at least one more time than they do.

we put the ball in the basket at least one more time than they do.

Actually, that might not work. Think about it....:p

Defend the wings, keep your eye on the ball, no turnovers, if possible. (Past practice, the 3 pt. shot won't be challenged heavily by the Zags.) Fire up Pendo and watch out. Hopefully, Matt will be on his game and Austin will hit some 3's. I predict a close game with fouls making the difference. Hopefully, the new guys will keep nerves under control. It's going to be a rough ride.
Go Zags.

At the half, I stand by my key to the game.....

ZAGS really have to score

We've been ice cold. If I had a dollar for every one of our missed layups I could buy myself more beer.

6 TOs aint bad but aint good either. We need those mid range shots to start dropping!
