    you can't win when you miss free throws....we got pretty desperate towards the end...bummer......and to add, NO 3 pointers when this team broke the record a few games ago.....lack of 3 pointers and missing 7 free throw the story of the game....

    Not only missed free throws and lack of three pointers, but I lost count on how many easy lay-ins were bricked. A real Jekyll-Hyde team.

    Fourth game in a row we got outplayed in the 4th quarter. This team just does not keep the intensity up for the entire game. Like I said after Saturday's game, if the ladies keep getting out-played in the fourth quarter, they will lose a game. Like I predicted, today there was no miracle shot, no last second made free throws, etc. Just an opponent that wanted the game more than you and they took it.

    We did not lose this game because we bricked some lay-ins, missed some free throws or even the attempt at a 3-point scoop shot by JB. Yes they kept our point total down. However, Ladies and Gents, we scored 72 points today. Prior to today, we have won every game we scored more than 70 points. You should win every game you play when you score over 70 points. All you have to do is play even a little defense and you win the game. Today, we played decent defense in the 3rd quarter, the rest of the game, we did not bring it.

    We lost because we did not play defense for the entire game. Yes USF shot relatively well but when you leave them wide open teams tend to do that. LS continually sagged off her man and into the key leaving her man wide open. It has been happening all year, today, USF made her pay for it. Jumping at the 3-point shooters (because you were late) they simply take 2 dribbles around the flying zag and hit the 10-12 foot shot. Fundamentals.

    Hopefully this is a wake-up call for the Tourney. What little chance we had at an at-large bid is now gone and the WCC tourney championship is our only remaining path to entrance to the NCAA. Let's finish strong, win the next 3 and take the WCC championship and go into the tourney on a winning streak.

    Late USF Three Secures Lead In Win Over Zags

    Gonzaga has 12-game win streak snapped


    SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Dons hit a three with 1:37 left to capture a lead they would not relinquish, and Gonzaga fell 77-72 on the road on Thursday night.

    The Zags did not hit a three pointer for the first time this season, and USF made 11 from long range. The Zags dominated points in the paint, 40-10, but ran into three empty possessions late. Jill Barta had her ninth game with 20+ points on the season, leading all scorers with 26. Laura Stockton scored 12 and Kiara Kudron had 14 with nine rebounds to lead the Zags. GU won in rebounds 41-35 and 19-13 in offensive rebounds.

    The Zags had two early turnovers in the first quarter, but six early points from Barta kept them close, trailing 11-10 through the first five minutes. The Zags ball movement quickly improved, getting the ball inside to Barta, and GU took the 14-13 lead on two Barta free throws at 4:06. The Dons ended the quarter leading 22-20, shooting four-of-seven from three. GU outscored them in the paint 14-2.

    Barta continued on a tear for GU in the second quarter, and had 18 points by the seven-minute mark. USF’s three-point shooting kept them in the game, making five to that point as GU led 30-29 with 6:10 to play in the half. USF took back the lead on a corner three and led 35-32 with 4:41 left in the quarter. A jumper from Zhané Templeton regained the lead for GU at the 4:04 mark, 36-35. The Dons came back with five of the next six points to lead 40-37. USF went to the break up 42-39 as Gonzaga was scoreless over the final 2:18. The half featured six lead changes and USF made seven first-half threes. GU dominated in the paint, 22-6, and 20-12 in rebounds. GU was hurt by nine first-half turnovers. Barta led all scorers with 18 first-half points and five rebounds.

    A fastbreak led by Emma Stach to Kiara Kudron gave GU the lead back, 45-44, three minutes into the third quarter. The teams traded leads back and forth, but the Zags’ defense picked up the pace with a turnover to fastbreak led by Stach and a rebound from Chandler Smith to Barta in transition for the and-one basket, as the Zags led 51-49 at the 4:53 mark. Jessie Loera ran a fastbreak that led to an Emma Wolfram and-one basket, as GU led 54-50 at the 3:32 mark, tying their largest lead of the game. Gonzaga led 58-55 after three quarters. Wolfram, who scored seven points in the game, finished the quarter with seven rebounds to lead all Zags, and GU scored six points in transition in the quarter.

    GU quickly led by seven on a Stockton steal and layup, but USF responded with a three and free throw to start the fourth quarter. The lead dropped back down to one, but a rebound and two free throws from Elle Tinkle made it 66-62 Zags with 5:45 to play. Both teams hit an empty streak from the field for over three minutes until the three-minute mark, as GU led 66-64. Two USF free throws tied it at 66 with two minutes to play. An offensive rebound from Smith to Kudron regained the lead, but USF responded with a three to take the final lead at 1:37. Gonzaga struggled to finish from the field, going one-for-four from the field up until the final possession, as they fell 77-72.

    GU shot 41 percent from the field and USF shot 42 percent. Gonzaga was 0-for-11 from three and the game featured 10 lead changes. Smith led Gonzaga with four assists and Tinkle finished with eight points. Gonzaga (21-5, 12-3 WCC) had their 12-game win streak snapped, remained in first place in the West Coast Conference, and will look to rebound at Pacific on Saturday at 2 pm.

    we should have won.....we didn't set up our traditional 3 point shooters very well....every shot was rushed....beyond that, we had some stellar play but just not enough...

    Would like to the see bench with more shots. Mak took one shot with 2 seconds left in game. Templeton, Rice, Loera need to be more involved also. CS shooting lousy last couple of games. It seems the bench does best when everyone is involved not just a couple of players.

    SF had the better game plan tonight and they scored like 11 3s, we only attempted 11 3s and did not get Stach, Mak, Templeton involved in the 3 point shooting. We were simply out coached and out played. LF got caught looking past SF and taking them lightly, she was already looking at the Pacific game and she paid the price. One game at a time and never under estimate your opponent.

    We must play one game at a time Pacific, San Diego, BYU they are all capable of beating us. Lets win the last three and win the WCC Conference Title. Forget about everything else.

    Lesson learned on to Pacific. Go Lady ZAGS!!!!

    When we were up by 7 & subbed the lead disappeared, not blaming the subs, but a very difficult position to put players in, their cold and nervous. Playing the subs enough minutes so they have a feel for the game would be more fair.
    Their good shooting and our mediocre shooting dedicated the outcome, I agree not enough pressure on their shooters allowed them to shoot well.
    GUs lack of good looks by our shooters really hurt, but why, lack of player movement, lack of ball movement, inability to create their own shot. CS & ZT seem to be able to create something but CS was off tonight, ZT didn't get enough time to get in any flow.
    Thought LS had one of her better offense games.

    Good points Pony. Think Lisa needs to mix her subs with the starters more and earlier to get them in the flow of the game. Think its a bad idea to put all five starters on bench at once and five subs on the floor at once. Mix and Match works best. ZT, Mak, JL need to get earlier minutes. Utilize ZR in situations where she can excel.

    One player that seems to make all her layups, on face breaks also is Mak. Just saying that Mak has the highest layup percentage (LOL).

    what is amazing about that game is that we knocked two of their players out with 5 fouls....we had Jill/Kiara/LS scoring pretty dang well...we outrebounded....

    how did we loose?......

    3 pointers....

    it would have been helpful if we hit those 4 FT's in the 4th...(tired?).

    I agree that we need our subs in and we need for them to get in a rhythm...

    We lost because we let USF score 22 points in the 4th quarter (that is a 88 point game clip) combined with the 22 points we gave up in the first quarter and the 20 points in the second quarter.

    Yes we fouled out two of their starters (including their biggest inside presence) and we still let them score 22 points.

    You keep looking for how we could have scored more points. We did not need more points, we needed to keep them from scoring as many points as they did.

    It is all about the Defense. If you don't play defense, you don't win. It really is as simple as that.
