    Default Next opponent thoughts

    Both teams (Ohio state and SDST) with 9 threes in the first half so far.

    Wonder what the staff is thinking as they scout this game. Share your thoughts below:

    Personally, I want Ohio State to win because SDST is a more dangerous team, IMHO.

    Gonzaga just almost beat themselves, so the next opponent should be invariably easier.

    Two pretty equal teams. Ohio State is just much better than they were at PK80.
    I kinda want the Jackbabbits to win so we can have a 2017 rerun of SDSt, Xavier and UNC to get out of the west.

    We didn't exactly blow out the rabbits last year, iirc.

    It was a tough game for sure, but Gonzaga did end up winning by 20 if memory serves. Neither team plays nearly as tough defensively as UNCG does, so I expect the offense to find more of a rhythm on Saturday.

    I was at that game. They played us tough but we were just to much for them and pulled away late for the comfortable win.

    Still, I would rather play Ohio State. Sure they have their stars, but no one like Daum. Guy like that just scares the crap out of me. That said, JWIII is the perfect guy to defend him, if there is such a thing.

    I'd rather play SD. Just not keen on rematches in the Dance. We already clobbered Ohio 86-59. I figure they'll be spoiling to erase that embarrassment with a win against the Zags. Either way though I'm always the most nervous about the first game. It didn't help that UNCG kept it close and the Zags seemed to let the 3/4 press get the better of them. Zags also looked a bit tentative and I absolutely hate tentative.

    Jackrabbits better get it going, down 9 with 7 to go.

    Speaking of playing tentative, all teams (and definitely us included) have a tendency to play more "carefully" when playing a lesser opponent for high stakes. In a second round game, I think we'll play more aggressively against Ohio State than we would've versus SDSU.

    I don't like that we've played and beaten tOSU this year, sets up a thing in their minds of "we'll show them" and I worry our guys might have a little "we got this" to them. Though, after today, our guys shouldn't be overlooking anyone.

    All that adds up to the fact that I think our guys will actually play better ball against tOSU. Whether it is good enough to win, dunno, but I think they'll be more aggressive and play better.

    Was Ohio State at full strength when GU played them in the PK80 ?

    I'm hoping a more offensive-friendly game will be good for the Zags. Don't like the fact that they've beaten OSU once already but I don't think the Zags will take anything for granted. They have to win the battle of the boards - I don't think getting out rebounded in the next game will work out for us. Also, it would help to get a few more 3's to drop...

    Penn St. beat the Buckeyes three times this season -- I'm guessing the staff will be watching those game.

    The bunnies did not go out to defend against threes for a bunch of the game and O St still only made 30 per cent of them.
