    I think this team:

    Joe Rahon, Emmett Naar, Mickey McConnell, Stephen Holt and wing Calvin Hermanson. Diamon Simpson, Brad Waldow and Omar Samhan anchor the frontcourt. Kerry Carter and Ian O’Leary round out the roster.

    ...is going to take the Championship.

    Given the limited offense being run, who is going to stop that patented pick n roll game with the above group?

    Not to mention, 5 dudes as 40%+ career 3pt shooters.

    A little guard heavy but if Waldow and Samhan are still in shape, and thatay be a big IF, they will take down Overseas Elite too.

    EDIT TO ADD: looks like Waldow dropped out? Not listed on final roster. If so, that certainly changes things...

    Added ex University of Washington 7 footer Robert Upshaw to the Zag roster for a much needed big man.

    This sounds interesting

    All TBT games will utilize the “Elam Ending,” which was designed to prevent late-game foulfests. At the first dead ball with under 4 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the game clock will be shut off and a target score set by adding seven points to the leading team’s score. (For example, if the score is 80-75, the target score is 87.) The first team to reach the target score wins.

    My preference would be that a foul in the normal play and flow, is just that. Grabbing etc is an intentional foul, 2 shots AND the ball, and 2 intentionals and the player is gone.

    More in keeping with the regular game, in my opinion, and it penalizes blatant fouling.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Never heard of the Elam Ending but sure wish NCAA would institute your example...I know they toyed with the idea of the "fouled team" having the option of shooting FT's or getting the ball back but that idea never came to fruition either...I feel almost all coaches would be against instituting your change, because there wouldn't be any way they could extend the game...Your change would benefit the team that is ahead as it should be...

    "I'm praying that we both win, I want them to win just as bad as I want us to win," former @saintmaryshoops center Omar Samhan says he's rooting for A Few Good Men in the TBT, which would set up a Zags vs Gaels game Saturday & a step closer to $2 million.

    If the simple fan doesn’t like fouls, they don’t need to watch the game. JMO

    Still recall the Kennel Club with the "Spokane Hates You!" chant as Samhan was warming up in Vegas for the WCC tournament -- he calmly walks toward our students and lets them know they are #1 in his book ,,l,,

    If you want to scream at Omar some more, check out Gael Force versus Air Force.

    Compliments of Urika GIAG.

    I've often wondered where Omar is currently playing...I liked his effort on the court and his drive to improve himself...it would be nice to see both teams win and play each other...as someone stated they didn't think SMC's entry can compete talent wise...I just don't think they are athletic enough...jmo
