    As promised... First installment for the day... I will post Duke tonight (although I will have the data entry done right after I am done with this)... just to add some suspense and give people a chance to absorb this one.

    Let's get to it. Collective average score was 31.92. A slight improvement off the Illinois game but not close to our low mark with A&M.

    Digging deeper... we undershot the Zags by a 3.65 and overshot the Wildcats by 7.11 which tightened up the spread which we undershot by 4.12

    Here are the means:

    Zags 87.3462
    Cats 78.1154
    Spread 9.8846


    Our winner for the Arizona game is GonzaGAW via being the first one in with the same score as second place BayAreaZagFan. Third was Mr. Vulture. My new tradition is giving honorable mentions to anyone sub-20. Those go out to 23dpg, TravelinZag, Bigblahla, dazags, Radbooks, Zagricultural, Stevet75 and Zagceo.

    Here are the standings:

    Difference on Zag Score * 2 + Difference on Opponent score *2 + predicted spread difference + 10 points if you pick the wrong winner.

    your prediction was 84-69, a 15 point spread
    your zag score was off by 7 (times 2 is 14)
    your wildcat score was of by 5 (times 2 is 10)
    your spread was of by 2 (times 1 is 2)
    since you picked the correct winner, no plus 10 penalty.

    14 plus 10 plus 2, is your score or 26, which in this case beat the average score of 31.92 across the board.

    OK... Time for the Duke results.

    Zags won 89-87!!

    So here is what is interesting... Overall score average was lower than Zona game with a substantial amount of you guys taking the 10 point. Score average for the Duke game was 31.69

    We undershot the Zags by 4.62 and undershot Duke by a whisker under two. We missed the spread by 5.11

    Here are the means:

    Zags 83.3871
    Duke 85.0161
    Spread 7.1129

    We had not one... but two perfect scores. Thespywhozagged me takes first on the first to post it tiebreaker. Second was White Lightning. Third place on tie-breaks was Zagceo. LOTS of honorable mentions for being sub-20 (bolded sub-10):

    Just want to say thanks to all of you for being patient with me on the turnaround time. Had a business meeting Tuesday night, family from DC on Wednesday night and then was at my in-laws on Thursday.

    OK folks... Here we go... zags win 102-60

    Collectively the score average was 38.887. Not our best work this season, but better than the first two games.

    Digging deeper... Came in 1.585 short on the Zag score. Overshot NDSU by 8.77 Spread we missed by 10 and change. Think we have a tough time with these type of games of gauging what the Zag defensive level is going to be.

    Here are the means:

    Zags 100.4151
    NDSU 68.7736
    Spread 31.6415

    Winner for this game is dazags who was a bucket short on perfection. Right behind was Zags67 and then my friend TexasZagFan (think this might be your best showing Tex). HM for remaining sub 20s go to 77Zag and Zagger who both had 18.

    As always, if I missed you... messed up... PM me so I can fix the underlying data.

    I promise to get the Creighton data entry started before Saturday to provide a quicker turnaround.

    My first time in the cellar (along with Mantua). I thought there could be a letdown after Maui and the long flight home. Boy was I wrong! Whatever Few said to the guys before the Bison game should be bottled and taken to Omaha this Saturday.

    Thanks once again LIZF .... fun stuff! Glad I finally got back up the ladder a ways. I was a little bit leery of predicting a 40 point spread being that I figured our starters would be off the court sooner rather than later against NDS, but .... I felt Geno would soon be clicking on sinking shots and I felt it'd be a good 3 point night. Sadly, Geno didn't get to play but the 3s ..... 45 points of the Zags score right there!

    These next few games are going to be tough to predict. I fear a grinder where neither team scores much over 70 could really upset the predictions. If I get a bit wild in my point spreads I'll likely dial it down around 20-ish

    Good news, guys! After seeing my performance, the NCAA just called me to help them get their NET tweaked...lol.

    I told them, thanks, but I don't have the time. In preparation for this season's visit from American Hoarders, I located the 400+ albums I brought back from Germany. To my surprise, they were in excellent condition, despite languishing in my garage for 20 years.

    A tip of the cap to Reed Schifferman, aka "White Blood", for introducing me to the Spinners. Both of those albums are in excellent condition. I can't wait to play them after our downstairs renovation is complete.

    My resolution for 2019 can be summed up in one word: Downsize.

    Zags battle in a shootout and win 103-92

    Not gonna lie... collectively... Ugly with a capital U... bolded... italicized. Average score is third worst of the season... 62.6825. Ouch.

    Digging deeper... Undershot the Zag score by almost 15 points. Meanwhile we undershot Creighton by 14.12. Right there is almost 60 points just on deltas. The bright spot... we came up bust .695 short on the spread.

    Here are the means:
    Zags 88.127
    CU 77.8730
    Spread 10.3175

    Winner of both procrastination prediction and overall is Kong-Kool-Aid with a score of 26. Alum08 got second on tie-breaks with Psychozag in third. No sub-20s so no honorable mentions this game.

    Here are the full standings for the Creighton game:

    I think you could think about giving some points to us fans for coming close to the spread. I believe the most important thing in this game analysis vs ours is the Spread; because if we were gambling it's the spread that you are playing against. I think it's pretty difficult to always get the correct scores right, and points should be given for coming close. But to me it's far from being the most important things. If the Zags win by ten or eleven, what difference is it whether the score Is Gonzaga 70 Creighton 60 or Gonzaga 100 Creighton 90? Both have a bargin of victory of ten points. Thats just my opinion.

    Thanks for all the work you do put into this.

    The prediction thread is great. Keeps interest in all the blowout WCC games. I see Reborn's point about the importance of spreads, and a reversal of scoring (2 point penalty for off on spread, only 1 point penalty for off on teams scores) would be an interesting tweak. However, I enjoy the prediction thread too much to risk losing LIZF's herculean efforts each game to input and score all this data. In my day, before home computers, I ran a brackets pool with 150-200 entries, and just about missed seeing the games with all paperwork.
    The only ONLY problem I have with predictions is that I actually sometimes find myself wanting the opponent to score!

    As long as it is a blowout game... there isn't anything wrong with that.

    Blowout games only, for sure. I was not real comfortable with the Creighton game until there was 3.7 seconds to go. A game against a 3 point shooting opponent that can get hot is the definition of difficult to watch.

    You have that right!

    I like the suggested change on the spreads but am happy with and enjoy however our good friend wants.

    We can entertain changes next season. When March Madness is done (and the Zags hopefully have a Natty) I'll open a post about changes in scoring. I am always open to changes but its tough to do midstream

    For kicks and giggles... let me re-run the numbers on a blowout and tight game and see how it impacts the overall scoring.
