    Default Best Zags by the Numbers - 25

    25 hasn’t had a lot of staying power, but it was the number of an undoubted all-time favorite. Who is the top #25?

    I am going to assume this is a Pendo run away, but it is fun to see the other #25 Zags.

    Agreed, though I liked both.

    Just thought of one more 25 from the past decade - Mathis Keita

    I recall he was one of the more polarizing players in the Few era. There were many strong opinions expressed on this board regarding his limited playing time during his career as a Zag

    Reminded you of Daye?? Let's see, 6'9 2 year player, NBA career, from California. Compared to 6'6 kid from nearby farm town, 4 year player, stayed local after college. Pretty clear why one is endeared by the local community and the other largely forgotten.

    If I recall correctly Mathis Keita was Jazz's favorite player and he was crushed when he transferred.

    The only jersey I own is #25, bought when Pendo was playing. To me it's the number that best stands for 'team'.

    Mike Nilson for me - for any of you who never got to see him play, he was an ultimate glue guy. Huge heart, insane hustle. One of my roommates was a really good ball player in HS and tried to walk-on at G.U. Said Mike was the best defender he'd ever seen in his position by a mile. Mike's senior night floor exit is one of my favorite memories from college.

    He's also a die-hard Pearl Jam fan, which makes him pretty okay in my book

    Major shouts to A-Train. I still think Anthony is one of the most important JuCo transfers we've had.

    Digging through the past, Tony Skinner: https://www.swxrightnow.com/stories/...vidual-perfor/
    Tony Skinner vs. Arizona, 2003: GU lost a 96-95 double-overtime battle, but Skinner still made five 3-pointers and scored a career-high 25 points.

    Zag's Tony Skinner puts a shot past Arizona's Channing Frye in the second half. (Brian Plonka / The Spokesman-Review)
