    Default GU vs Arizona - Predictions/Thoughts/What you do hope to see

    Game two in a tough stretch for the Zags. Zags are facing, as of now, #12 Arizona IN Arizona. Zona is coming off a tough loss to Baylor. How will they react?

    What are you guys hoping to see? Expect to See? Thoughts? Predictions?

    Those were both in Anaheim not Tucson, but their defense has not been good lately.


    Take away Nnaji and if the rest of the team is clanking 3's like they did against Baylor should be easy.

    - putting score aside on this game. just win baby win.

    - keep the momentum going......we know the importance of the next two games...........dare i say 2 wins and home cooking, 2 losses and a long flight to somewhere far away.

    - with byu and st. Mary's faltering in o.o.c. we are pretty much all in on these next two games.

    haven't been impressed with zag defense...if the cats are hitting their threes (over 40%) i think they win, and since it's at home i think there's decent chance that happens.

    Default My prediction:



    Yup, guaranteed. Flop sweat, everywhere.

    On the other hand, this game has been predicted as the most likely game this season the Zags don't win. I'm sweating and nervous too.

    I remember a Saturday game not too terribly long ago when I had to navigate watching ESPN with getting my little girl to an indoor soccer match (thankfully, the ARENA offers both beer + popcorn and large screen TVs while you watch your kid get nutmegged).

    Went to overtime. It came down to "watch KID," or "Watch Zags." I was certain that Pangos and team would notch out the win. Yeah, nutmegged. That was painful.

    I don't know if our Zaggies will prevail this time, but I'm sure Sean will pour out a few gallons, and Fewie will have a laugh at Coach Spigot.

    OK, that's my prediction.

    (Sorry for the too large image. Not my fault).

    McKale a huge plus, maybe 6-8 points. Gotta stop Carrot Top, the kind of player who goes off on Zags purported three point D. Zags will score however and no Stewart in the middle, best player Zags will face this year. How did Buckets Miller miss out on him? Checking account glitch?

    It is finals week.

    I really hope the Zags show up bright eyed and bushy tailed not zombie like as they have in for first game after finals week in previous years.

    Arizona is another talented team that has to learn to play together. I think our guards can harass Mannion and that will be the difference.

    Really would feel better about this game if Arizona hadn't had such a poor shooting night against Baylor. I'm pretty nervous with it being at AZ, the wildcats hungry, and the Zags overconfident. Espn's 36% seems about right to me.

    4-6 Pepperdine took them to the limit.

    Based on the scores they have had... Defense isn't exactly a strength for Zona.

    If the Zags can match Baylor's D against the Wildcats, then I think Zags have a good shot at this game.
