    And it was absolutely the right thing to do. So proud of him to go with the better players over the veterans.

    The poor play by Perkins for several games, and PK last two games, does not bode well.

    And the awful FT shooting by Matthews and Williams and Melson.

    Part of it is also matchups. Love that we had the right guys for the right matchups.

    If JWIII would have made one free throw he might have been left in. Mt K had a tough game, but did hit his free throws.

    He did the opposite of last year (leaving out eMac) but he did the right thing.

    Charles Barkley got it 100% right on TV. Gonzaga doesn't know how to stay aggressive when they go into "conservative" mode and they get lazy and sloppy.

    JWIII's granny at the carnival flick of the wrist push shot free-throw shooting motion is atrocious.

    Thank god Few went with the best line-up. At least for today, maybe going forward. Years past, he would've kept pounding the starters hoping they turn it around.

    We are damn lucky to still be playing.

    Josh is a head case right now. Sometimes plays great and other times he is out of it. His D in the first half was great. He came out in the second lacking energy and arguing with the ref.

    Shem and JW3 because of FT's, Perkins for ballhandling. I love the Gazelle lineup, they can play fast and furious. That experience for Tillie, Melson, and Collins bodes well.

    Look, I don't mind if the Zags lose after playing a game to the best of their ability. However, the second half was tough. It felt like the SMC game in Vegas, but they never got their mojo back in this game IMHO. At least they won't be over confident when they play WVU.

    IMO they won't be up 20 at half, maybe like 5, or down 5, which gives us a much better shot at playing a full game.

    Yeah, what happened to the Josh Perkins who looks for his shot and knocks down jumpers?

    As they all should have. All three had a terrible second half. I don't know what's up with JP. I'm liking Melson out there a lot more than JP right now. This team ain't playing like the best ever

    I got my money's worth, this is as far as I thought they would go..the rest is gravy...if the ref hadn't blown the call on Collins this might have ranked up there with some other infamous losses....
