    Average score so far this season is 48.08. Our best season was 2 years ago with an average if 46.1601 (but that was the old scoring system where wrong score penalty was 5 instead of 10)... Last season was our worst with an average score of 52.967

    We have a maximum of 10 games left. We can get this score down.
    You are awesome.

    Zags win 86-76!!!!

    Well... That was a great game... by the Zags and by us! I really thought this one was going to be the best of the season... nope missed by that much! Second best game of the season for us... average score was 21.7429.

    Breaking it down... we almost nailed the Zag score... coming up 0.65 short. We undershot the Gaels by 3.99. Spread was over by 2.229.

    Here are the means:

    Zags 85.3429
    SMC 72.1143
    Spread 13.2286

    Winner winner chicken dinner goes to Martin Center Mad Man! But MCMM knew that already... because he was perfect! ZenZag got second. Dixie takes third on tie breakers... which in this case, since he and 2 others had the same score... he who the score first gets the glory. That being said... props to Stache and MyZags.

    Super HMs (Sub-10 in order): Stache, MyZags, GrizZag, and WenatcheeZag

    HMs (Sub-20 in order): RenoZag, Zags11, BayAreaZagFan, Stevet75, Bocco, CdAZagFan, StatZag19, Radbooks, JPW314159, BigBlahla, ZagsObserver, All Weather Fan

    For what it is worth... there have been 11 perfect scores... Zaga is the only person with more than one. Zaga was perfect in season one and this season.

    Since we have a while before the WCC tourney starts and the Zags won't play until next Monday... I will try to post some seasonal stats this week.

    Meanwhile... that SMC/BYU game sucked me in... Thought I was going to watch a little and go to bed... Nope.

    Also, for the record.. ABV on the beers 8.2 and 5.6

    It is damn crazy to have a game at 1130pm...I tried to stay up, just lucky to finish our game. Taped it and was up at 7am and watched SMC beat BYU...BYU just peed down their leg...missed so many shots in the paint...BUT BYU can play defence except on Ford that is...

    Hope we do better tonight...

    Ok... I know I am dragging this out... part of it is March Sadness Depression... the other half is that I have been super-busy.

    So... going to do one tonight, and the other in the AM. I overslept this morning and still had to get the corned beef going before I left for work.

    Zags beat the Dons 81-77... Yet another tight game. Before I get started... If they can keep Golden (which I am not convinced they will)... USF will continue to be a force in the conference. I find his constant complaining to the refs annoying, but man he gets the most out of his players.

    So... without further delays... lets see how we did. Average score on this one was solid... 30.4483.

    Let's break it down.

    We overshot the Zags by 2.069. What got us was undershooting the Dons by 5.828. Spread was off by 8.1034.

    Here are the means:

    Zags 83.0690
    Dons 71.1724
    Spread 12.1034

    Our winner for the WCC Semis was... Zags11 (third win of the season). Second goes to All Weather Fan on tie breaks... Third... my friend DixieZag... who keeps saying he isn't good at this.

    HMs (Sub 20, in order): WenatcheeZag, Radbooks, upan8th, MyZags, ZagsGoZags, Kitzbuel

    Last one of the season... sadly.

    Zags win over St. Mary's 84-66.

    We finished the season strong. Last 4 were sub-40. Average score for the SMC game was 23.7568.

    Breaking it down...

    We undershot the Zags by 4.11. We overshot the Gaels by 3.945. Spread was a killer... undershot that by 8.17

    Here are the means:

    Zags 79.8919
    SMC 70.0541
    Spread 9.8378

    Final winner of the season is... TacomaZAG!!! Only person in single digits! Second goes to gaels87, who might be the first board visitor to break the top 3. Third goes to rennis.

    HMs (sub-20): Just one... ProveeZag

    The one bit of feedback that I'd give you is that I believe the most important statistic is how many points the Zags win by. For instance I predicted the Zags would win by 17 and they won by 18. That's pretty close, yet I finished 22nd because I didn't have the scores as close as some did.

    I agree with Reborn. Spreads should be 2 points penalty, individual teams scores 1 point penalty. But any prediction game rules are also okay with me, if I don't have to do all the work. Thanks again LIZF for having this competition that makes the ends of games gut-wrenching when a sub makes a meaningless three and a prediction goes from perfect to 9 points off.

    I totally agree with how much I like this thread. May be my favorite really. And it certainly does help in keeping my interest all the way to the end of the game. I am sooooo competitive....this thread helps satisfy that need. I will say one thing. I did really bad this year in my predictions, but I still loved the team....They were certainly hard to predict what was going to happen. And I kept believing that their defense would improve but it just didn't. Luckily they could play good defense in the second half usually, or their season would have been very different.

    Go Zags!!!
