    Default DZ's 9th Annual One BOLD Prediction Thread

    We normally reserve this thread for the first week of football season, and - well, we'll leave that week up to interpretation.

    Suffice it to say that we're late.

    You know the Rules: Any Prediction is fine but it must be BOLD

    However, there is ONE new rule this year: Given that the Zags are entering the season as the number one ranked team in MOST/MANY Services: We WILL NOT be Accepting "Zags Win National Championship" as BOLD - and that is a good thing because if Duke were smart enough to have the same sort of annual thread, they'd have the same rule.

    MINE:

    A GU Freshman Will Win WCC POY

    The walk-ons get to play in the Zags final game.

    Jalen Suggs will enjoy such a great season for Gonzaga, Chet Holmgren will be the Zags' first #1 commit.

    4 of the top 5 scorers this year were not playing last year.

    I suspect the walk-ons will all get 30+ minutes during garbage time of WCC games.

    One of the freshman will be All WCC off the bench.

    Zakharov will be better than Ballo this season (not so much the next)
    Probably the only Gonzaga fan in Ireland!

    Agree with Martin. There will be a lot of talk at the end of the season that Ballo will get drafted in the 1st round.

    Nine players will average 10+ minutes per game OR a Zag transfers out mid season

    Maybe not so bold after all because as much as Few seems to have a rep for running a tight 7-8 man rotation, as recently as the 2018-19 season Zags had 9 players who averaged 10+ mpg.

    Default Two For the Price of One

    1. Gonzaga's leading scorer this season will be a freshman.

    2. Ballo will not foul out of any WCC games.

    Gonzaga will be a top 5 defensive team as determined by advanced metrics.

    Watson will definitely be WCC POY at some point.

    I'm not sure how many 'some points' we're gonna get with Watson. I think it's time to probably to start ripping the band aid off now and realize he's likely gone after this season.

    Which brings me to my bold prediction:

    Watson is the highest NBA drafted Zag in 2021.
