    Default Favorite Zag Game

    One of my favorite Zag games was the WCC tournament semifinals from 2 years ago ('15-'16). We'd lost in the regular season to both BYU and Saint Mary's. We only had 1 top-50 win thus far. The streak was in big jeopardy. And there was an HBO show being made about the team called "March to Madness".

    Eric McClellan rallied the team to a awesome finish in the WCC by wiping out the team's 2 biggest rivals when it mattered, and then the zags went on to win several games in the NCAA tourney and do better than expected. Eric's story reminds me a little bit of J3 -- both were transfers from the schools at the same part of the country, and both seem to have really found a "home" playing and living in Spokane, WA.

    You can catch an extremely excited and encouraging Nigel Williams-Goss cheering on the guys throughout the game and at the halftime break. I guess he'd been practicing and lifting and training with them all year at that point.

    One possession game at about 4 minutes left. That close to the streak ending. Wiltjer and sabonis won this one for us. Do you have link to the next game at st Mary’s I couldn’t find it. Would love for o rewatch that one.
