    These are the best two announcers going, as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not usually one to even notice announcers.

    Gonzaga has so many active streaks going, it’s hard to keep track of them all. The ones that pertain to Saturday’s battle between the WCC’s top two teams: Gonzaga is riding a 19-game winning streak, the nation’s longest road winning streak at 18 games, 40 consecutive WCC regular-season wins and six in a row in the series since the Cougars ended the Zags’ bid at a perfect regular season in 2017.

    That place is absolutely massive, been there once. It used to hold about 5K more IIRC, before they remodeled.

    It must get insane loud.

    So, probably a good idea to just be up 25 in the last 5 mins. I hope that's in the game plan.

    I expect a good game. Hope it’s not a foul fest. Neither team is deep.

    Both those foul calls were bad. Haws should have gotten a warning for flopping on the one against Petrusev.

    Its been a while since we've seen a good court-rushing.
    My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

    From an SMC fan... can we just agree that whether it’s St. Mary’s or Gonzaga who has the honors, BYU does NOT get to win a WCC title. Not now. Not ever.

    Absolutely. I don’t hate SMC. I want to beat you guys as badly as we can, but that is because you are good. I ####ing hate BYU. They are smug ####ing punks. They don’t win on skill. They cross check people. ####ing cheap shot. They hit people in the nuts like last year. Punks. Nothing but Punks. That is their culture and it is accepted. I sincerely hope they never win a game for the remainder of the university’s existence. #### you BYU.

    The feeling is mutual. I don’t root for the Zags often but I did tonight. BYU fans are trash, booing obvious fouls. I hate losing to GU but I hate losing to BYU worse. Here’s hoping we meet in the WCC final. As it should be.

    Pope seems like a good guy, but they still play Dave Rose thug ball. They would have won without that anyway, but it detracts from the program. Classless.

    The Zags played poorly, but still could have come out with the W had the officiating been even mediocre. Alas, it was not even up to mediocre, it was blatantly one-sided in favor of BYU. And what kind of sportsmanship is shown by the BYU player (Seljass?) who stepped to the free throw line late in the game to shoot the bonus when he was what -20 feet - away from where the foul occurred? He knew he wasn't the player to be shooting the free throws, but up he steps to the line cool as a cucumber, innocent as can be. That takes a special mindset ... one I want nothing to do with. I wonder ... did Coach Pope instruct him to go to the foul line instead of the player who was really fouled? My hunch is that he did. There's losing ... and then there's losing to BYU like we did tonight. This loss was special.

    I completely agree. Mark Pope stated before the season started that GU was overrated. I know SMC is a rival year in and year out. I respect them. I do not like BYU from Mark Pope to TJ Haws who had a cheapshot on Petrusev which wasn't called. I was hoping GU would have faced BYU in the WCC tournament because we would have kicked their ass after what happened in Provo.
