    Default GU vs BYU Championship edition - Predictions/What you hope to see

    Did the Zags dodge a tougher game against SMC or did they get a tougher draw with a team making a run?

    What do you hope to see? Expect to see? Predictions?

    Focus on the game plan, run the sets on both sides of the ball, don’t get sloppy or lazy, clinical execution from tip to buzzer, win.

    85-70 Zags. J3 shuts down Childs, Gollum gets a wet blanket, and our reserves keep it close at the end.
    It's not funny.

    I think it would have been better for GU's seeding in the Big Dance to play St. Mary's... But, the atmosphere in the title game should be better fan-wise.

    Tillie & gang: 90
    BYU .... 70

    The way the Zags are playing - maybe a bit generous @ 70 for BYU but I think the Utah boys are spirited plus they - and us - have a hefty fan base in Vegas. Still, thinking we’ll run the Cougars a bit ragged and win by 20-ish. Got a feeling we’ll see some scoring by Josh & Silas tonight

    I hope to see Melson stay in front of Hawes and Williams overwhelm them on the inside. Perkins has been playing incredibly well and selflessly, content to deliver the ball to our scorers and not force shots. BYU must focus on slowing down Tillie, JWIII and Rui = good game for Perks to rain 3’s!

    Zags have been so locked in. Anyone else notice they aren’t celebrating like crazy after great plays...just focusing on next play? I love this team’s demeanor right now; they have big goals in mind and are dealing with every opponent as just an obstacle to overcome en route to their mission.

    Very tough to beat a team 3 times in a year
    Zags defensively seemed dialed in
    Byu offense is clicking
    Physical game coming up
    Byu is another q1 win

    Zags put a solid stamp on a very good season and fulfill their next stepping stone goal of tourney title after winning league title

    Getting opponents into foul trouble a key tactic by this BYU team. If that tactic is not working we prevail easily. Zags by 10 85-75

    ZAGS 80 - BYU 65

    Josh runs the show really well again with 12 points and 5 assists. Tillie and Rui go wild again.

    Most importantly, Joey brackets doesn't take up 10 minutes of screen time during the game, like last night.................

    Go ZAGS

    Tillie continues his hot streak. Rui continues to impress. Kispert finds the bottom of the net a few times tonight. Childs has a good, but not great, game. Haws and Bryant continue to annoy, but have no real impact on the outcome.

    Good guys by 10.

    The Zags defense is just too tough for BYU. imo. I'm hoping to see a knockout tonight. Zags stand alone at the top of the mountain, crowned champions.

    I hope to see JW3 continue playing like a man among boys. I love how he's playing. I love beautiful 3 point shooting; so I hope to see more of it tonight. I've always believed that this should be a great 3 point shooting team, and lately they've been showing what they can do. Look at our shooters: Perkns, Melson, Norvell, Kispert, and now Tillie. These guys can ALL shoot the 3 ball. I'm so happy they've all been doing it.
    I hope to see the Zags come out of the locker room hungry and tough. Hoping to seem them in championship form.
    Be a Zag. Be ready.

    Go Zags!!!

    I have heard both it would not be a Q-1 win and that it would be a Q-1 win, I think the fact that the definition of Q-1 remains elusive and dependent on who is beating who is all the reason to laugh at the committee for using it.

    I would've liked to have played SMC in a rubber match.

    No injuries, please. I always worry playing these guys.

    Z's: 80
    B's: 71

    I am shocked BYU won bc Randy has owned BYU forever. But, SMC looked so tired last night, like they were physically worn down. No excuse for that given their schedule.

    I like/respect SMC except for the well-documented issue with sched. I hope they get in.

    Smile Can BYU "bring it" two big games in a row?

    Guess we'll find out. Since the Zags have lost three times to BYU at the MAC in the last four years, methinks Zags are mightily motivated to quickly smack down any Cougar aspirations to ride the Zags' coattails into the Big Dance. After all, the Orleans is the Zags' second home ("Not in our place!"). Childs may be a stud, but we've three studdlier in J3, Killian "the Killler" Tillie, and Rui. Also, there's that likely 4 Seed looming, if Zags win, as further motivation.
