    OK kidding but not by much. Real score:

    81-67 Zags. Bit of a hangover from playing them back to back. I would like to see us play some full court press just for practice.

    After being humiliated in Spokane, and in front of proud homecrowd, Pilots show some life.

    Thinking Zags will NOT play like they did tonight and will come out possessed. Thinking Nigel sits... but that won't matter.

    Going to retract this and:

    After being humiliated in Spokane, the Zags come out and pour in 30 points before the 10:00 in the first half.

    If Collins is ready for the NBA, I'm ready to be Mark fews successor next year. Guy has trouble rebounding and doing work vs portlands bigs. Tons of talent but needs seasoning

    Goss took a good one. I don't think it was the hit, just the sudden stop when he hit the floor.

    Little bit more Rui tonight. Nice.

    Zagsfan, you do realize Collins lead the team in rebounding in only 18mins right.

    Scratching my head a little in that. In fact he has as many as Karnowski and Williams combined. Help me out here. Oh, and 2 steels and 4 blocks. Tough Fan base.

    I do feel that the guards needed to rebound a lot better.

    Also of note on your young footer. Count how many times that he leads the break or is first back on defense. Not sure you realize that footers just don't do that.

    Wonder is Melson is sick. Didn't seem his self tonight.

    Cats and Zags won. It's a good night and time for a beer or two.

    Sleepwalk through the game, sloppy play, tons of turnovers, not much energy and enthusiasm. Oh, and we win by 20+. Yay WCC!!

    Yeah, I was scratchin' my head on this too. Collins' numbers are solid in my book, especially so when you consider his minutes played. The kid is only going to get better.

    Nice opportunity to see if the boys can be angry enough to rebound... Go get the ball! long stretch with multiple games. I'd platoon as much as possible . We have the talent to do that. Zags by 30 or more.
    I think Nigel was "hip checked" not eatly a clean play.
    THis rebounding tonight was horrid. We must clean this up or face a shortned outcome.

    Based on what we saw last night I am revising this. Zags shore up the weak side defensive glass, and play with some fire. Hoping Nigel is OK and sits this one out. 91-48 Zags.
