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

    Eastern is coming in 7-3. Common opponents are North Dakota (16 pt win) and Washington (10 point loss). Zags are coming in off a big wins against UW, UA, and UNC. Will the Zags look past the game or will they come out firing.

    What are you hoping to see? Expecting to see? Thought? Predictions?

    EWU better than many realize. Very well coached, play smart, together, & have scored pretty well.

    This will be competitive for a half or so.

    As several have predicted, a closer game than expected for me.

    EWU will score points on our #46th rated defense, yet also struggle stopping us.

    88 - 75

    GU needs to prove that regardless of the level of competition, they are improving and deserving of the number 1 ranking when Kansas loses a game. That's all. THAT AND MAKE FREE THROWS.

    Yep, Eags aren’t shabby. Also, hard telling how the Zags might play after beating up on UNC. Eastern, likely more than any other school GU plays, aren’t really a foe. Spokane likes EWU - a lot. I think that will carry over to the game.

    I think the Zags will slow things down from the UNC pace and the Eags can score. We may even see Eastern with the lead at halftime. I hope to see more than 7 Zags in this game.

    Crazy thing about the EWU game is according to NET, it would be a better win than North Carolina.

    Saturday afternoon game that I can watch at a local sports bar, but unfortunately, it will be competing with an NFL game, so I'll probably have to watch it on a small tv in the corner without sound. There's the potential for a letdown, so I think this will be another test of this team's character. Another building block for a team that came into this season with a few question marks.

    There could be a let down, or it could be for Spokane valley bragging rights. I think the latter,

    Need to do more digging but first look shows Eastern no pushover for sure. They play 9-11 deep and played Washington and Boston College tough. They can score putting up some gaudy numbers. The Aussie guy appears to be good. Playing Washington well is telltale. We need to take them as serious as anyone we’ve played. Holding off my prediction until I dig deeper.

    Eastern is a good team, don't want to see a let down following the UNC game.

    Defend against the 3 ball. Don't let them go off. Petrusev needs to put the hammer down on the low block and play strong and don't force shots. Rotate the ball, get a good seal on the defender and make it miserable on them down low

    Jazz, THIS is where your contrarian curmudgeon perspective would actually be exactly right.

    I think this is the definition of a trap game.

    This team is 3-0 through its toughest stretch in forever, wants to go home for Christmas, thinks the team 5 miles down the road doesn't have a chance bc it is Eastern, and yet teams in that league can play, especially when it is one game.

    We actually are not firing on all cylinders (maybe bc we have so many cylinders), and it would simply be human for them to overlook this entirely, put in half effort.

    Put it this way, I expect this to still be a game with 10 mins left, and at that point the Zags will decide that they better get after it. I am not putting them down, as I said, it is human nature. I'd love to be proven wrong.

    This game gives me a Portland State feeling...good Big Sky team, quiet crowd with no students, Zags coming off tough stretch...Zags 81-80 in overtime.
