    Default Best Zags by the Numbers - 33

    Deciding the best of the #33s is going to be interesting, too. There are a few standouts that wore this jersey.

    Who do you nominate?

    Too hard to choose. In the spirit of the numbers represented on their jerseys, call it a 3-way tie?

    Tillie. Gave it his all after 4, mostly injury plagued years. A true Zag!

    Tough call … I'll go with Tillie! 4 years, team so much better with him on the court, played both ends of the court..... all of this while playing through injuries.

    Had Killian been at his healthiest year before last, IMO, the Zags would've put three players into the NBA's first round. Gosh, this fan loves that kid. He'll forever be one of my favorites. Tremendous talent, came across in interviews as a gentleman competitor.

    Tillie. Liked what Wiltjer brought to the team but Tillie better in all aspects of the game.

    Tillie! What adversity he has had and yet he's been a rock for the team.

    Wiltjer in 2 years had more points (1374 - 1023), more 3 pointers (158 - 106), and shot a better 3% (44.9 - 44.4) than Tillie in 4 years. Also just behind in rebounds (463 - 497) with 2 less years. All that being said, I'm going with Violette. Not as talented as the other two but a really solid 4 year career. Rebounding machine.

    my vote is Killian who has a broad range of skill sets for the game, while Kyle had a few excellent skill sets, notably weak on defense ...

    This is a fun debate. I loved all of these players.

    Tillie was never counted on to be a volume shooter/scorer the way Wiltjer was in 2015/2016. OTOH, Wiltjer never played the kind of team defense that Tillie brought to the floor either. Different team compositions required different roles to be filled, sometimes out of necessity. All 3 truly excelled in their assigned roles. Violette’s job was to be the inside bruiser and clean up on the glass, and he was terrific in that role.

    Can we combine them all together and call Kyllian Violetilljer the best Zag 33?

    I have always liked Cory Violette. He represented that dedication to playing in a system that made the team so much better than its parts. That commitment to the team has become a hallmark of all GU teams. He was consistent and reliable as a defender and rebounder.

    I might have to go find that Arizona game now.

    I think the poll should have Wiltjer, not Mallon.
