    Gray all day. Carter with the mop up save and other good numbers a close second.

    Maybe the SJU poster will vote.

    +1. Carter/Gray are the obvious choices, but Meech deserves it tonight. With all the minutes DS has gotten lately, and all the accolades, Meech has hung in there and been a steady, team-first guy. Tonight he was needed and stepped up big.

    Mark Few. Never this year has a Gonzaga team been that well prepared for a big game.

    Gray - everything just worked better with him on the court.

    Few and company. Wow. What a great game.

    Coaches for getting them ready, the guys for performing. Go Zags!

    I'll go Carter, but Sacre took the wind out of their sails and Harris was simply great. The team three point shooting was outstanding. The rebounding was nothing short of dominant.

    The Zags handled the press with ease and that was really the only weapon St. Johns had.....the defensive press. The Zags handled the opponent's strength with ease and the Zag's defense on their best player, Hardy, was simply outstanding.

    Few's finest coaching ever. Not just this game, but for the second half of the season. This team was very well prepared.

    The Zags played at a very, very high level.

    I'm thinking that those WCC coaches weren't so dumb after all.






    Marquise Carter!

    But huge hats off to Meech, Gray, Few and all the rest. Great preparation and great execution all around.

    I'll go with Carter - going from barely playing and maybe not returning in Dec to 24 6 and 6 in an NCAA win in March is just absolutely amazing. I was worried his slow release on 3s would hinder him, but it wasn't really a factor and man was he on.


    If I felt it wasn't cop-out to choose the team or the coaches, I would. Wow. Just wow. That was by far the best bball the Zags have played this season. 20 assists on 28 made buckets.

    20

    Assists

    on 28

    made

    buckets.

    Unreal. Just unreal. I think in a lot of ways the WCC has benefited this team this year. It not only allowed (forced) the team to get their house in order, it made them perform under immense pressure, which helps deal with NCAA tourney games (I mean, compared to ending the streak and having to walk around the school and the city for the rest of your career and be recognized vs the possibility of losing in the first round vs a lower seed after you were already in had to be not that great). Also, I think the fact that the WCC teams pretty much know all the guys' tendencies and really shut down their first options pretty well honed the team this year for playing a team that, yes, was athletic, but didn't have the time to really learn and adjust to the Zags' tendencies. SJU had absolutely no idea what hit them. Wow. Beautiful bball and absolute dominance on the boards to make up for the (fairly small) TO disparity.

    Every player played great. In preparing for this game the answer was Meech. We had no problem bring the ball upcourt which is where St. Johns beat most teams. Also this was the best coached game I've seen of Mark Fews years as a head coach. I think a lot of that is attributable to him listening to the imput of the other coaches. Way to go ZAGS.

    I have to go with The Marquee! Guy was unstoppable tonight. But also have to say that this was a total team effort. I mean we out rebounded the Johnnies by what......23 boards? Simply amazing!

    Gotta go with Carter. Meech really had a solid game. Who woulda thunk GU's guard play was going to match up so well against SJU?

    Steven Gray> He was leader tonight, the one in control. He was the one who stepped up with confidence, and Sacre and Harris followed right behind him. These 3 guys really played great tonight and took St John's completely out of their game. I've never seen a team keep St. Johns from attacking the basket the way Gonzaga did. Gray was just awesome on defense in the beginning, and Gonzaga's press really hurt St. John's. We beat them at their own game....

    Steven Gray was by far the team leader tonight - did EVERYTHING! Score, pass, rebound, steal, defend, intimidate (in a nice way) - an amazing performance. Yes, Carter looked very solid, but many of his points were free throws (thanks for making those!), and did not make as many amazing plays as Gray (but did have many of his own). Meech was great too. Harris looked energetic, Sacre would have had more points if the many fouls on him would have been called, but his hands are a current problem.

    Carter, he did it all!

    I loved the Zags defense tonight, they collapsed the center preventing the drives. Best team play all year.

    From top to bottom a greatperformance from the players and staff....great preparation!

    My G-UNIT is Meech. The redmen's game is generated off of their defense...Meech sorta ruined it. I hope other teams watching give the press a chance too...
