    Stocks:

    10 pts
    5 rebounds
    5 assists
    1 steal (i'd trade a rebound or two for steals)
    (Hudson on post game said this was DS's 14th game this season in which he has had at least five assists.)

    All eight of Pangos' points came in the first half. He set the tone. I'd bet, too, that it's his first career game without a 3-point attempt.

    I feel like it is pretty much even between Dower and Stockton; i'll cast my vote to even it up! Huge shout out to Shem!

    Total team effort if it were an option My vote would go to The Team, but since it isn't my vote went to Stockton.

    It was such a complete team effort that I had to pick someone that no one else would pick. Hence the GUnit goes to Nunez tonight.

    Here's why I voted Karno:

    Waldow is a career 60% shooter who went 3/8 tonight for 9 pts, and only 3 boards in 25 min. Like the Zags' bigs, he normally either commands double teams, freeing up SMC's 3 pt shooters, or scores at a high rate. In 2 games v the Zags, he is 4/16. Karno dominates him and doesn't need help to do it. Not to mention how many shots he alters by drivers.

    That fact knocks over the second domino, which is that SMC spreads the floor with 4 shooters around Waldow much of the time and makes them at 39% coming in. Five for 18 tonight, 6 for 30 on the year v the Zags. So the Zags hold them to half their normal 3 pt %, granted that it's on a small sample size. Because the guards are able to stay on their guys on the perimeter and don't need to help inside much.

    Take Karno out of the equation and GU still wins, but SMC scores another 15-20 pts imo.

    I gave it to Dower because of the double-double.

    Maynard makes a great argument though. That's why Shem should be defensive POY.

    Voted Dower. I think he might get some looks from the NBA. His offensive skills are probably there, not sure about the defense though.

    Constantly bringing facts in and helping me see the game better. Appreciate all you're saying but I have to give it to Sam. Part for sentimental reasons - his last reg season game, in part b/c even if Waldow had his normal game Sam would offset it and probably have scored more, and part b/c the guy is on a tear and doesn't seem to miss anymore - at a real good time to be like that.

    Can't disagree a bit.

    The guy who plays Charles Barkley on SNL's weekend update is hilarious. I'd vote for him if he was on the list.

    Sam is the Man! And David Stockton played a very good game. Proud of our seniors tonight. Drew Barham was solid as a rock too. I'm sure they all feel good. I also thought PK played one of his best games tonight. I absolutely loved his passing. And Dower got on them boards again. Easy pick tonight.

    Sam got the vote over Stockton. If DS had hit just one 3 I might have given it to him. Like Shem'sdefensive performance, Bell's also deserves mention holding Holt to 0 FGs. great team effort.

    Sorry, when I read this I just had to check. Actually Pangos did not attempt a 3-pointer at Santa Clara this year. So just the 2nd time in his career.

    Had to read a lot of posts before seeing some love for our quiet warrior, GBJ. Holding Holt without any FG's is astonishing, especially since Holt had gone for 61 points his last two games.

    Agree about the great team effort. Hopefully, this will build some momentum for the WCC Tourney and the Dance. Got to say, though, as KP goes, so go the ZAGS............

    Go ZAGS

    Agreed. Another point(s): Anyone else notice 1) that Karno's free throw percentage has crept up dangerously near 60%?? - huge improvement and getting better; and 2) those two quick nifty interior passes to Stocks and Dower? The man has skills and he's getting better in all phases. Will be fun to watch him the rest of this season and hopefully a couple more...
