    None of the first 8 should have been. Baffling

    Melson didn't even touch him. What a joke.

    Why would he?

    Put Beach in there for him for all I care. This game was over a long time ago. This is a disgrace.

    Is there any reason whatsoever that Rui isn't in the game?

    Agreed. We got bigger games later that we need to win. Portland wasn't coming back. I'd be more entertained with Rui, Jones Alberts, Edwards, and Triano

    No Rui, no Edwards? Baffling as always.

    Agree 100%. And this is how injuries occur. I wish somebody in the local media would have the gonads to ask Few about that.

    Just out of curiosity, for those who think Tillie and Collins should be playing more generally speaking, if you pull EVERYBODY w/ 10 minutes left in a blow out, how are you going to squeeze minutes for a 4 man rotation for 2 positions in only 30 minutes of game time?

    Does anyone know Meehan? Or one of the other reporters who will be in the locker room tonight?

    He HAS to ask Few about this — and ask firmly, directly, without softening the question.

    "Why are your key contributors playing in blowouts?"

    Rui, Edwards, Jones, Alberts and Triano should be out there knocking the rust off but I'm not going to crucify Few.

    I've never seen any program pull their top 8 guys with 10 or more minutes left in the game no matter what the score is.

    Really unfortunate. Was just saying how we're flirting with injury issues with 5 games in 9 days and up 30 in this game.

    For Tillie to be feeling his ankle sprain in his knee is a terrible sign.

    High ankle sprains take at least 4 wks, sometimes much longer…usually a month minimum.

    Will have to wait n see. It was more than a typical ankle sprain as he landed with his weight, I'll be curious if his fibular wasn't compromised.

    Three major contributors...Melson, Collins, Perk...still in there after coming back from the under-8. Appalling.

    Default Odd Question Re: TV Commercials

    Watching this on Root in Seattle, and noticing that the two recurring TV commercials that the WCC is running (Giving Back and the plug for the league network) don't show a single Zags athlete. Not just basketball but any sport. Is this a licensing issue? I'd hate to think it was out of spite...

    There's absolutely no reason whatsoever that Perkins and Collins should be out there right now.
