    That should just about do it. Proof of the power of home court advantage
    (women's game too!).

    I guess it makes sense to storm the court in a semifinal game against a team you have already beaten before...at home. Huh..

    That court storm was somewhat comical.

    SD has played 90 minutes of basketball in the last 27 hours. Brandon Johnson better go sleep until about 1pm tomorrow.

    Great game

    Hopefully SD will not have much left in the tank after tonight. Huge minutes played by their starting 5....41, 43, 46, 48 and 50 (B. Johnson). Good news for the Zags.

    Default Careful what you wish for!

    In an earlier thread, I said I would be rooting for USD because of Coach Grier. Uh-oh, now we have to face them on their homecourt. Hope they're a little tired and a little emotionally spent after perhaps themost amazing comeback I've ever seen. Good for Billy and the team.

    I'm calling it right now.

    Brandon Johnson > Nate Robinson

    If Nate can make it in the league, then Johnson surely can.

    St Mary's scored 16 points in the first 4 minutes.

    Over the next 44 minutes, they scored 36 points.

    USD did nothing particularly different defensively in the second half. Their half court pressure defense was token at best. But for some unknown reason, Mills, Simpson and "Sambo" took a lunch break at half time, and then stayed for some beers. If the Zags were to quit tomorrow's game like St Marys did tonite, they wouldn't deserve a bid to the dance (either).

    Oh, and it wasn't a full-house, hometown SD crowd raucously backing their homeboys that intimidated the Gaels. A third of that group, evidently taking their cue from Dodger Stadium "faithful", left a few minutes into the second half.

    The quality of play tonight, in both games, was pitiful and embarrassing to the WCC. Unfortunately, the selection commitee was required to watch.

    I guess teams that haven't played a game in nearly a week, Gonzaga and Saint Mary's, can't have nerves when playing their first game in the WCC tournament.

    I disagree with you. It wasn't low quality basketball. It was nervous, oh ++++, i'm playing for my life basketball. Some games aren't pretty. That's just the way it is. As for the selection commitee having to watch and the WCC being embarrased, I really disagree. I had numerous friends and relatives text me about how entertaining the game was. One team fell and the other team rose up beyond expectations behind two Juniors who don't want to be done with this season quite yet. It may have not been fundamental, but it sure as hell wasn't embarrasing or boring. I had a ton of fun watching tonight and so did many friends and relatives who know a hell of a lot about basketball, and they absolutely loved it. I don't know what more you want.

    .
    It was a full house for part of the end of the Zags game and the beginning of the San Diego game, but it's not the fault of the San Diego fans that most of the Santa Clara & Gonzaga folks didn't want to stay and watch a game that appeared to be a blowout. I was tempted to leave and I had watched every minute of LMU-USF, so it doesn't take much to keep me in the seats. It was still at least half full for the end of the game, and I'd say 40% (or more) of the tickets to start the night were Gonzaga fans, so most of the Torero fans who attended, stayed.

    There was a healthy crowd out in the "fresh air" outdoor area at halftime, but they came milling back in with plenty of time to spare before the comeback started. They were pretty darn loud, and not just the student section packed like sardines and not allowed to move into any of the couple thousand empty seats, lest anyone be offended by having students from another school within 4 rows of them (all student sections from each WCC team were forced to stay in their areas, with security continually finding them elsewhere and moving them back, which seemed really absurd in earlier games when 3500 open seats were scattered around the building).

    Cool

    Bad basketball:

    Zags vs Broncos totals: 31 turnovers! 35 for 84 shooting; 18 for 25 ft shooting; 100 total points.

    Gaels vs Toreros: 28 turnovers; 42 fouls; 32 for 56 ft shooting. 52 for 129 fg shooting!

    SD's comeback, or the Gael's gag, whichever you want to call it, provided the only reason to watch the second game. Guessing most of the country yawned through the first twenty minutes, turned it off at halftime, went to bed, and missed that part.
